      • Yeah, but you also took the right pictures! I like all of them, but I am still impressed by the one with the jeans. It could not be “simpler” (meant in a good way), but still the picture manages to create such a melancholic atmosphere. I can imagine a whole story out of those jeans near the window!

      • Yes, that is what I see when I shoot with film. All seems better and means more when shop with film, at least for me and in my eyes.
        It just all, the grain and the character of the film roll, gives the shot it’s own attitude and character.
        I am so glad we share this opinion about film! :) I wish more and more people nowadays would practice more film photography. But as I see, it actually rally is kind of happening and that makes me happy. Almost all tumblr is full with gorgeous 35mm film shots, as well as WordPress!
        again: Thank You!

    • I used Canon 300 for this. A very simple camera,that is why I love it and enjoy shooting with it so much.
      I so envy you about that ISO 1600 film! Could be a real fun thing to try!

      • I also usually use expired film. Still shooting with USSR time cameras, like Chaika.
        Also willing to find something good and unique in flea markets, a bit older than my current best-film-friend.
        Thank you for the link, it’s very convenient :)

    • Hello! Thank you so much about the interest and the kind words.
      After getting the negatives developed and scanned, I DO NOT use ANY post-processing at all.
      I consider the film photographs as completed characters on their own.

  1. Great images! Love the last one especially! Film is great isn’t it? I like to use digital and film, but film has a special place in my heart!

    • Lucky you! I found this one in a small shop and it was pretty pricey. But all worth it. Wanted to try something with a higher ISO, I usually shoot with 100 – 400 ones.
      Thank you!

      • I’m surprised by how clean and clear it looks. I’ve used Fuji’s 800Z line, although it was in poor lighting. I’ll have to keep my eyes open for the Superia 800. I quite like using the 400 and usually have a few rolls on hand, just in case.

      • In a way, me too. I was expecting more grain for ISO 800.
        I usually feel comfortable with 200, but even more usually try out expired film, so I never know how grainy will it turn out.
