Return of the F100 - Part ll

June 02, 2017  •  1 Comment

Earlier this year I purchased a 'new to me' Nikon F100 film camera. It's the same model of camera that I used when I was working in photography in the '90's in Winnipeg. You can read more about that here.

Anyway, I've had a chance to run a few rolls through the camera, and I gotta say... I LOVE IT!

Of all the cameras that I owned, the F100 was my favourite, and after shooting just 3 rolls of film I remember why. I had a few fumbles trying to remember where all the buttons are, and what they do, but working with it for a couple of days it all came back to me. I even took a couple of glances at the back of the camera after taking a shot, only to remember that there is no monitor, so no checking photos until the film comes back! It took a little to get back into the groove with it, but the way it handles, the way it sounds, and the way the images look, I feel at home in my photography again.

Here are a few results from the F100. Film is Ilford HP5plus developed in Kodak HC110.

Have to agree with the idea that a little inspiration and renewed excitement can only benefit your art. I think you're only a true artist if you experience periods of no inspiration or motivation. I know I go through them!
