One Shot with Aly – the Triangle House

This shot was taken with my Canon FTb on Ilford HP5 400 film. I am working on a review/article about my experience with this camera so I took it along with me to a doctors appointment.

I was in a moving car when I quickly took this picture. I pass this house every time I go to my chiropractor and I always say I wish I could get a picture of that house, but the traffic is always heavy and moving fast. I was surprised this came out and that I was able to catch the windmill on the front lawn. I had to use a fast shutter speed so it didn’t catch the movement of the windmill, but I still really like this shot. I think I will try it again on color. What do you think?

Stay motivated and keep shooting.

  1. Great pic. I love my FTb. It’s a hand-me-down, and the lenses were kept in excellent condition. That Canon FD glass is excellent and surprisingly affordable relative to some other lens systems.

      1. My favorite is the Canon FD 50mm 1.4 – it’s just so sharp and versatile, with really nice blur wide open. I also have found some of the old Vivitar lenses (I have a 28mm 2.8) that are decent for dirt cheap. I guess many of them used to be used by Sears Portrait Studios in the 80’s?

        1. Oh that’s interesting. I didn’t know that. When I first bought my canon TX it came with a vivitar lens and I was so surprised how good it was. I think I’ll try some more of those because some of the FD I want are a little too expensive. Thanks for the recommendation

  2. A moving car? That is impressive, I like it and the framing is very good. I am trying to make up my mind about my Canon FD kit, I like them in spite of the bulk and weight. Service is a hassle, my two favorite technicians refuse to work on them, and I seem to be unlucky with old film equipment.
