Time to buy a new Camera..

.. more like time to buy an old camera.

Ive been wanting to get my hands on an old film camera for a while now. My best friend gave me a Diana F+ two years ago which i absolutely adore, but for people who don’t know what a Diana F+ is, let me say that its one of the simplest forms of taking pictures: a plastic box, a hole in it and a film reel behind it to capture the light.

The Diana was and still is interesting to use and dont get me wring i love taking pictures with it, but the lack of control over your final image is pushing me to seek a new/old purchase.

i’m thinking about the 1966 Canon FT, seen below:Image

So for all you Photographers and enthusiasts out there, what do you think about this next purchase? have you had any experience using it and do you recommend it? your feedback and thoughts are highly appreciated.


My day to day idols

People like Brian inspire me to be more, to take risks, and to try and push myself out of my comfort zone.

We both are teachers, we both love our photography and i’d like to think that I have a little bit of an eye for pretty things just like he surely does. One day, and i hope that day comes sooner than later, i will follow his footsteps.. for now enjoy his work.VSCOFilm_BrianRickey09

To create that warm feeling in his shots he uses an awesome set of presets -made by a digital company called VSCO– that simulate old analogue film.
