Shooting with film can be expensive. Best to have guidelines so you won’t be wasting time and money shooting and developing rolls only to find out your photos suck.
These photos were taken from my trip to Barcelona last 2009 so yeah I look different. I’m glad I still have these hanging around. If you think the photos are old, what more the camera.
My late father left me an heirloom of a slr (single lens reflex) camera–the Cosina CT-1. Mas matanda pa sa akin to eh. I had a habit of bringing it abroad on trips cause it looked cool and it would be such a waste if nobody else would use it.
A third world tourist always makes use of what’s available.
Here are some shots I took that prove that the brand OR AGE of a camera doesn’t really matter. What’s important is you have fun with the process. The product will follow.
Landmarks and Architectural Detail
La Sagrada Familia can be one La Sagrada pain in the ass to shoot. Especially if you only have a 50mm lens. So you have to know how to angle and crop your photos well or you’re doomed.
When taking portraits…
Go loco for locals
For the love of landscapes
I actually have other undeveloped rolls that might have interesting photos in them. Will look into that soon. I’m going to Apo Reef, Bohol, and Bali this June and I can’t wait to try out this slr again.
