Film roll…


I got addicted to Jack, my lomo cam… It’s actually a little harder than using Oris {my Nikon d40}, it’s inconvenient and expensive. Taking the shots were not as easy as I thought, and the process of going to the mall to have it developed and scanned; the expenses you occur for the film and contact print, whew! All that effort… but it’s all worth it… I tell you.

First film roll was totally experimental. I took this months ago, I was just lazy to post it, hehe… Anyway, Heintje, gave me his old films {luckily, he likes keeping his old things}. It’s a 35mm YKL, though expired, still very much okay to use… then I have it developed in NCCC Mall and here’s the result.

When we went to Tagaytay for our Manila shoot, of course I brought my little baby with me. Heintje {the one holding a camera} also used his beautiful old Mamiya medium format camera {lower right photo}. It’s like we had a film gig, lol. Anyway, he knew an old time developer shop there, so I had this film developed too. Oh I really liked how they developed it and their contact print were very nice too, feels like you’re an old timer photographer, hihi.

After using my expired films, I bought one of the Lomo film bundles-Red scale {available in GMall} for a change. I wanted to try the saturated color film but bought the wrong one. However, I think, it looked okay though…

After 10 rolls, I am still not an expert. I’m still having a hard time taking the right shots. Most of my rolls are overexposed or under exposed until now. My golly… I don’t want to count how much I spent already. But nonetheless, I really find it fun, especially, it’s still not yet popular here in Davao.

Hopefully, after my 12th roll, I’m getting good at it…. and hopefully, I can buy my next lomo cam… I’m eyeing for Lubitel. But for now, I’m truly happy with my little Jack.
