So it goes something like this ……
I bid on a used Nikon F100 which I end up winning on Ebay. I receive the camera in the mail. I buy two rolls of film. Laura is nice enough to model for me for a test run on this “new” camera. At the end of shoot the film does NOT rewind!! UGH!! I am VERY upset! Not only had I been outbid so many times trying to “win” the camera but now THIS?!! I am very frustrated, so much that I end up double exposing the film in an attempt to rewind the film. After too much fiddling, the camera does end up rewinding. After this incident, I contact the seller on Ebay who swears there has never been any problem with the camera. SOOO….. I decide to shoot the second roll of film the next day, this time it DOES rewind and in the hopes that it doesn’t give me any more problems in the future, I decide to keep the camera. I am SO hoping I wont have the same problem again and that it was just me not loading the film correctly. Hopefully it was something I did wrong and not something wrong with the camera. Anyway, I took both films to get developed and scanned at Walgreens. When I got the film back, I was THRILLED to find out that my photos were ALL well exposed!! The reason I was very excited about this was because a few months ago when I rented this same camera, 90% of my images were underexposed, but this time they came out well exposed and soooo pretty!
I am loving film all over again 🙂 I love the color, the grain, the softness and I LOVE the fact that there is minimal post processing if any! Next time I will be mailing out my film to a better lab, so stay tuned 🙂
Here are the images from this mini session before I share the ones from the second roll. If you take close notice, you will be able to see the movie I was watching while I was fiddling with the camera and double exposing…… sigh!
