Why on Earth are you writing a blog?
Admittedly the internet is swelled with photography blogs aplenty, however this particular incarnation is largely going to consist of transcriptions from my film journals which I write in order to keep track of camera and exposure settings, as well as thoughts related to the feel that each film brings to me.
I’ve been shooting on film for around 3 years now and haven’t tried nearly as many films as I’d like, although every time I shoot I do try and either put a film in the camera that I haven’t tried before, or I experiment with pushing/pulling a film that I have had some experience dealing with.
The camera that I’m using (as of 30/03/2020) is the pictured Chinon CE-5 body with a Pentax 50mm f1.7 lens. I picked this camera from a fleet of second hand film cameras avertised on eBay for it’s great versatility at a competitive price. Because the name Chinon doesn’t ring in the ears in the same way that Canon or Nikon do, I managed to snag the camera body for £20, although it does have a mark which appears on the bottom left corner of all the images it takes; it’s in pretty great condition! Because the Chinon sports a k-mount lens socket I could then pair this with a mint condition Pentax lens that I found for £30. At the time of writing this I only have the one lens so all the sample images will be relative to this setup.
