Film is Still Cool

So my son Oliv­er and his chum real­ly think my old cam­eras are cool. I even have an old move 8mm cam­era that you had to wind up to run.

The cam­era on the left in this pho­to was actu­al­ly the first 35mm cam­era I used in learn­ing pho­tog­ra­phy. I got it from my dad… well, it was my dad’s and maybe he nev­er real­ly got it back after I start­ed using it 🙂

So the kids are shoot­ing a few rolls of B/W film and we’ll see (and maybe post!) how they do. 

And it’s no sur­prise they both have Minecraft shirts on. That same tin­ker­ing ideas they do in their gam­ing is just what you need to get an old cam­era to work, learn the ‘sun­ny 16 rule’ and load film in the real world.
