Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival

March 02, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

After I have my camera serviced and repaired I set myself up to capture the images of the Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival at Federation Square in the city. I have decided to load the same type of film that I used last time for this shoot. The film that I was using is Lomography's CINE200. This type of film was previously available to motion picture cinema only and now it's now made available to 35mm film camera. I spare you the technical details of how this film was made possible. 

It was difficult to shoot as the light was strong and harsh, with the limitation camera's shutter speed up to 1/1000 seconds I have to choose my shot carefully.  I have realised how difficult it was to focus without the help of autofocus technology and have to constant looked at my lens to adjust the aperture. When you do this you would have missed the moment. However, I am very pleased with the results that when I got the scanned images from the lab. The light meter is working perfectly and most of all the camera is sealed tightly so that no light can escape. Here are some of the images captured that day, I hope you enjoy these images as much I do.

What's next?

I've recently purchased a camera from eBay. It's a rangefinder Yeshiva Electro 35. I've loaded a roll of film - Color Implosion and working on it. I'll post some once I finish the roll. Yes, it takes time and patience to shoot film.
