Photography-lovers may remember the purchase of my first film camera, the Pentax ME. I promised to show you the results and here they are. Although truth be told this is not the actual first roll, that tragically ended up in the bin due to a lack of understanding on how to release the film. Major disappointment. So disappointed in fact, that I had to put away the camera for several weeks before I could be bothered with it again.
I bought the camera on eBay and was a little worried that it would even be in full working order. But once I got these developed last week, they turned out better than I could have imagined. The colours are so vibrant, they look as though they have been edited but here they are in their natural state. I took random shots more to test the camera than anything else, and often I took the same shot with a few of my cameras to see the differences between them all on the same subject matter, with the same light and composition etc. The camera is manual, so a lot more time needs to be taken with the focus, this is definitely not a camera for quick shots. The majority of the roll turned out very well indeed, so next time I will spend a little more time on the subject matter.
