new lens, new film
these past few days i was waiting for a roll of film, which seemed to take forever. well, maybe i was a bit impatient too. the thing is, i have a new camera. i mean, a 'new' old camera. it's a 1970s nikkormat EL which i've been coveting for months. and now i've been shooting the first roll of slide film with it, using a 'new' old lens with it - a nikkor 50/f 1.4. which basically means i can shoot really close up, even in low light. hooray! i have to work out some of the settings with this particular camera, but i can definitely say i love it.
thank you so much for your wonderful comments on my last post, i was quite touched. stay tuned for the winner of my little surprise, which will be drawn at random and announced early next week.
