It’s hard to believe it’s been so long since I posted on here and surprising to also see that my last post was in May. Photographically, it all feels so recent but that’s probably because I haven’t done much photography since June. I couldn’t really explain the reason why either. It’s the same on my Flickr though; get to the third page and you’re already in 2009.
I shot my first roll of film a couple of weeks ago, motivated by the fact that it was my first and last chance to use some Kodachrome. So I shot it in a borrowed Exa 1b. Not only is it the first left-handed camera I’ve ever used, but it also has a maximum shutter speed of 1/175. Both of these elements slowed down the process of shooting and… it was a lot of fun.
Last week, I bought a Fuji Instax 210. I haven’t finished the first cartridge but it’s been a promising camera so far. I’ve yet to discover a way of disabling the flash, so I don’t know when that thing is going to go off which is a bit annoying.
Here’s a shot from the camera, taken whilst holding a FL-W filter in front of the lens.
