Yashica Electro35

John sent me a Yashica Electro35, an old rangefinder, for Christmas last year. It took me a little while to get used to the idea of rangefinder but I’ve been having a lot of fun carrying it around and snapping away! I know film photography can get expensive however there’s something very attractive about it and I’m learning to appreciate it better now. I like to share some of the better shots I got with the handsome old rangefinder. The last photo is the Yashica Electro35 itself.

I’m back

It’s been a long time since I made the last entry on this blog. I’ve been busy working and traveling but I’m still alive. 45 days of the trip to USA was wonderful and I came back with a whole bunch of photographs to share. I developed most of the film photos but haven’t found enough time to go through all the digital ones just yet. I will upload them on my flickr whenever I find time between work.

Today, I’ve decided to share one of my favorite photographs from the trip. The more I take photos, I find myself appreciating the process of taking photos more than the results. The reason I like this photo so much is that it reminds me of the beautiful day driving up the California Highway 1 along the Pacific coastline, running into this old lady who was painting the ocean sitting by the ocean, having such a pleasant conversation with her, and how wonderful it felt to frame, focus, and release the shutter to capture the beautiful moment I was enjoying. Taking this shot with a Hasselblad was a bonus as it’s such a great camera with an excellent experience of photo taking process.

Anyway, here’s the photograph for you to view and I hope you would enjoy.

John was kind enough to let me use his Hasselblad while he was visiting Korea. I finally managed to scan my very first roll with Hasselblad yesterday. The entire experience of holding Hasselblad, looking through the amazingly beautiful view finder, and hearing the loud but complete sound when the shutter is pressed is something else. Now I see the result of it, I can’t wait to get one for myself someday.

The Second Roll.

I picked up the photos of the second roll with Olympus XA today and here are some of the better ones to share. Rangefinder is a bit confusing still and I guess it takes practice. At least the second roll turned out better than the first one.
