Hello out there,
Iso, shutter speed and aperture, at times I feel I have no idea what I’m doing, putting faith behind the push of a button. Living on that rush of waiting to develop to see if you got the shot. Blurry or not, here I come, another roll, another adventure. I started my journey in film with a Canon Ftb, its weight in my hand and the sound of the shutter hooked me and I soon found myself in a downward spiral of vintage camera addiction. An Argus Autronic 1 came in the mail, followed by a Voigtländer, then an Olympus 35c, a Kodak Bantam, a Yashica electro 35, a Minolta srt 202…. “No honey it’s not another camera I swear.” *whispers under breath* “It’s another lens.” Glass so much glass. Then one day I found her. All black, copper-silumin alloy body, a marvel of Japanese mechanical precision. The Nikon fm2. Yes Nikki and I have been together for sometime now and she’s been good to me. I Cherish every memory she’s helped capture. Moments I know hold, like the photos I held as a child and hope one day my children will have to hold and smile. I look forward to becoming a part of this community and learning from you all and sharing more stories. I hope you got everything you needed today and if not it’s brought to you by tomorrows rays.
Sending my love and positivity your way,
Don’t forget to look up.

Hello out there, br Iso, shutter speed and ap... (show quote)


Good story and excellent photo.
The first SLR for me was using a FTb as well but acquired a Nikon F with a photomic prisim a couple of years later to see what the fuss was all about.
