I've always wanted to know what it's like to shoot using a film camera. I never knew where to start. It was a giant leap for me to get myself a Nikon FE2, load a film in it, and shoot away.
Truth be told, I don't know what I'm doing with it. Zero idea.
Shooting in the digital age makes me take things for granted. Aperture ring? Light meter? Manual focusing? (That's a pain in the ass!) Learning to shoot film forces me to re-learn photography, like I never knew it before.
Having to shoot and not being able to see a preview after is truly a new experience. Frankly, I thought all my photos are ruined, so thank goodness only some are severely underexposed.
My first roll I choose to test out my FE2 is the once commonly available Fujicolor C200. Perhaps I shoot it wrong, because the grains are profound and heavy for a ISO200 film, or so I thought.
I even brought the camera out at night. With a mid-speed film, I don't even know what I'm doing out there!
Nikon FE2 can make double exposures I was told. With no particular subject in mind, I set out to make ridiculous double exposure. These are awful!
Let me go back into my little corner and cringe for a moment.
