I needed to run a test film roll through the Canonet 28 on Saturday to test for light leaks and make sure the exposure was working right, and while I was at it, might as well shoot some 3D squigglies with the Nishika N8000 so I’d have 2 rolls to develop. That meant rolling up a couple short test rolls, doing a quick shoot and developing session.
It seemed like a good opportunity to document my process of using a film camera to make digital images from start to finish. Over the past couple of months, I feel I’ve perfected my process to the point where I can easily have digital images up the same day of the shoot, so I figured maybe others would like a peek at how that works. It’s fun, relatively fast and super-cheap. I figure my cost per roll for using film is usually under $2, which is about the price point where I can feel comfortable with shooting rolls for no particular reason other than getting in the practice. That, I feel, is key to making it a viable hobby and eventually may lead to me becoming a halfway decent photographer. One can always hope. (:
It’s also an excellent opportunity to test out attaching a photo gallery to my post. Never done that before, so let’s see if it works…
and now, the resulting photos:
