... because the first shot was accidentally taken when my elbow leaned right onto the shutter button and the lens cap was still on. Yes, JJ picked up what may just be my dream camera from Adorama the other week and I intend on hogging it all I can. Ya hear me? :D
For those unfamiliar with this beaut and beast, it is a medium format (specifically 6 x 4.5) film camera that many of my photography idols shoot with. There really are no words to describe this thing. JJ definitely hardcore geeked out over its impeccable construction and how every function is pretty much a dial or switch, meanwhile trying to learn every minute detail about its technical specs and etc. I mean that's cool and all, but I just want to take pretty pictures. :)
Here is the Woolworth building disappearing into the clouds. I'm giving the new Portra another try and so far I'm liking the results a little better from this roll. It's tempting to share all the shots at once, but I'm going to spread it out a bit because each shot deserves that. Also, it only gets 16 shots per roll (15 usable shots on this one because of my mishap) so I have to be even more careful about what I shoot! I must say, I can't wait to shoot more and share more.
