We Enter Into Winter

Fall has been long gone, I doubt anyone would argue against that. Winter has slowly crept its way up, and is almost ready to take the stage…I just don’t know if I am ready for it. Cameras and books surround me, and I honestly couldn’t be happier with some of the photos that I have taken recently, but I face that awkward feeling of repetitiveness that I suppose all photographers and artist come across. My photos are all unique in their own ways, but I fear that I am running out of things to take photos of. As I type that, I know what I am saying is ridiculous. With that noted, I will continue doing what I do, because it’s what I love, and if a person can do what they love, then nothing more needs to be said. The following photos were taken with some of my favorite film cameras. First photo: Pentax p3n. Second photo: Lomo LC-A+. Third, Fourth, Fifth photos: Fuji Natura Classica.

The Impressive Pentax p3n

I was given the Pentax p3n as a gift from a friend. I love my Minolta X700, so it was going to take a lot of convincing for me to let another SLR into my life. I decided to shoot one roll with it, just one roll to see how the photos turned out. I was blown away by the crisp clear results that this camera produces.

This camera has a few cool features. First of all you don’t have to set the ISO or ASA speed, it does that for you based on your film cartridges coding. There is also a very accurate automatic setting on the lens and dial, if you decide to use it, rest assured the camera is doing most all of the work for you.

The best way to test a new camera is to just take it somewhere, anywhere, and take a lot of photos of different subjects and content so that you can get a good idea of the kinds of photos that it takes. For example, food, your setting, people, etc. I waited in anticipation to see the photos that this seemingly standard SLR camera took.

As you can see from the photos, this camera is fantastic! I was just shocked by how simple it was to use and how professional the results are. This is a cheap and affordable SLR by most standards if you can get one secondhand. I highly recommend this SLR for anyone interested in taking crisp clear photos with simplicity in using the camera itself.
