Film roll #2 was all about trying to eliminate over-exposure and unfocused shots. Shadow was my subject because she’s my sidekick and always with me, plus she’s painfully adorable … and she didn’t have a choice. Thankfully she didn’t know what was going on anyway and provided the challenge of focusing on something that is constantly moving, which I knew I needed to work on. Exposure was an easy fix because I’m beginning to learn the quirks of my Spotmatic. The light meter is either broken or I don’t have the right battery (working on it), but I also know I could do it without the light meter. I was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out.
Most of these shots were taken at a park near my house in the afternoon while the sun was setting, which created a warm glow on the tips of her fur I found to be really beautiful.
This means rub my belly please.
I love the back of her ears so much.
These were shots to experiment shooting inside my room using the evening light (the sun was almost set) from the window.
And then she photo bombed and somehow this light leak thing happened<3
Overall I think roll #2 was a success in getting more accustomed to the Spotmatic. There’s definitely little quirks on old cameras that you wouldn’t find on a digital camera, but I think the outcome of the film is well worth it. There’s no way your iphone could capture the richness like film does, not matter the filter.
