These are some shots I’ve taken in the last couple of days with my new Canon AE-1 Program 35mm film SLR that I picked up on ebay.
Apart from some messing about with a lomo lca+, my original entry into the world of photography was completely digital, so it’s been an interesting experience learning about film, the intricacies of a vintage camera that’s pretty much devoid of bells and whistles, and also not having the instant gratification of the large Canon EOS 40D viewscreen.
I’m hoping this will help improve my shooting style – I’ve been making a conscious effort to think a bit more about what I’m trying to achieve before I click the button, and not taking multiple frames to make sure that I get the shot (well, not more than two anyway).
