Recently, my cousin gave me a small crate full of film cameras. I acquired three new sx-70 cameras, a few land cameras, one Canon automatic 35mm camera, and a few more that I have no idea what brand they are. Some look like they're from before 1960 and some a a little newer.
What I love most about shooting with these cameras is seeing how different each one develops. And film is just so beautiful. Sometimes I contemplate ditching the digital and using these cameras instead. But being that photography is now my job, I think keeping film my hobby :).
This is an Ansco 35 with a fixed "color corrected" lens. Photo taken on my phone.
And here are some of the photos it produced. I have to remember it's a rangefinder camera which means that I have to compensate for the offset of the viewfinder and lens. Which is why some of the photos have funky composition. But I gotta say, I love this little camera! The film that came out looks amazing!
My mother getting ready to garden. See how it cut off half her face. That's the rangefinder issue.
I took a trip to Disneyland and thought it'd be a great place to test out the camera.
My favorite photo of the day! A little jazz band was parading through New Orleans Square and look who happened to be there with them!
