"What do you do for fun?" is a question people like to ask, and I think I finally have an answer besides "I still like to take pictures in my free time." I like to learn and shoot with film. In my free time I've been going out with some film cameras, but I haven't really posted any of the results here. I think it's maybe because I haven't been satisfied with my skills yet, but it'd be fun to start keeping track of my progress here.
A friend of mine has access to a darkroom where he can help me develop some black and white film, and I've been playing with the idea of getting an Epson V600 to scan my own negatives. Maybe if I get better at this stuff I can start saving money from sending my film out. I got more time than money! I'm going to try to use the resources I have as much as I can.
Anyway, the two recent new cameras I got is the Nikon FM and the Mamiya 645af. Both were an awesome deal I didn't want to pass up. I wanted a 35mm film camera after the Nikon N80 mysteriously stopped working, and I also wanted a medium format camera with autofocus (Recently I've absolutely just been SUCKING at manually focusing with the Mamiya RB67), and the size of the RB67 has been keeping me from going out and shooting with it.
Someone stop me from buying ANY OTHER CAMERAS from now on. I've covered ALL my bases, and have absolutely NO REASON to get anything else.
