I never got around to posting them, but I got my first test roll of film from my Olympus OM-2N scanned a couple of days ago. They’re only a couple of test shots I did when I was hanging out at the barn, but I am so in love with these lovely retro colors. Also I had forgotten how soft film is. We’re so used to tack sharp digital photos that these seem sort of dreamy in comparison.
Sweet baby at the barn:
Don’t even know what I love about this picture but somehow this draws me again and again!
Taking full advantage of the Zuiko 50mm 1.4 lens. Very interesting bokeh I think, definitely different than with my Canon (though my lens there is also 50mm 1.4).
And of course my cats, what would a post on this blog be without them?
I will be going on holiday next week (yay!) so don’t be surprised if things are a bit quiet around here. I hope to be coming home with lots and lots of new pictures for y’all, both film and digital (keeping fingers crossed for good weather!!) 🙂
Also I have been thinking of starting a series of tutorials on how to use a vintage treadle (or how I use my treadle to be specific), very basic things like threading, oiling, changing needles, adjusting tension and stitch length etc. Might be handy if someone buys a treadle without a manual and wonders how to use it. Would anybody actually be interested in that? Let me know!
Katzenfotos sind und bleiben toll!
Great shots! It’s always fun to step aside from the digital and return to the manual camera every now and then
Definitely! I never used a film SLR before and I am loving it!
i love how looks film photos… yours are great, i can’t be boring to your photos about horses and cats, i really like them!
the tutorial sounds great i’ll be waiting for it…
have a great and fun time off!!
Thanks 🙂 I’m glad you like the horses and cats, I often feel I hardly post anything else 😉 Glad to know you’d be interested in the tutorial, I’ll work on that when I come back then!
I love the idea of a tutorial!
Also, fingers are crossed for the best weather in Germany. Can’t wait to see all the pictures you’re gonna take. And oh! Spring! I hope I’ll come across very colorful images too. Have a safe trip!
