Recently I finished the black and white film I had in the camera for a while. Old camera, old car, perfectly matching. In analogy to the previous “Gaugeous photos” (Gaugeous, Gaugeous II), this is Gaugeous Part 3.
Camera: Praktica L2, 50mm 1.8
Film: Ilford HP5+
As said before, I want to dive deeper into the analogue topic and ordered real black&white film. I’m really curious what the outcome of this will be. So let’s wait for the right opportunity to play around with it.
And this is what I got back after I gave it away for developing. I like the outcome. Still a lot room for improvement. And the next time I will not use the discounter around the corner for doing this job. Best might be to invest more money and get this done in a local photo shop.
Mostly I’m running arround with my beloved EOS 400D or in the past months I have used more often the iPhone 4S for the day-to-day stuff. But despite this and the undoubtly advantages of the digital equipment with its instantly available results, I really become a fan of the analogue equipment. The first thing is: I can work with 35 mm frame size without upgrading to a 5D or 6D. And I really like the outcome of this old Praktica L2 which already captured my own childhood in the 80s of the last century. Not perfect from a technical point of view. Perfect to freeze emotions.
A few weeks ago I finished the film I had in this camera since June last year. Too long.
