My camera collection is growing more and more each month. After all, this wouldn’t be Aly’s Vintage Camera Alley if I didn’t have a lot of vintage cameras right? I love these cameras. I can’t help it, and I love reviewing different ones for all of you, but the downside is, I don’t get to spend enough one on one time with a single lens or film stock to really get to know it.
One on One: a New Series
Therefore, in response to the downside, I’ve decided to start One on One as a way to get to know some of the cameras and lenses I own. Moreover, I want to get used to some film stocks I don’t normally reach for.
In this series I will shoot for a week with a lens I have neglected, and on others a film stock. For example, this week coming up I am going to shoot only with Kodak Tmax in my Nikon F. I can change lenses if I choose because the one on one will be focusing on the film this week. The following week I may shoot with my 85mm Nikkor on my Nikon F, but use a film stock I am already familiar with. This allows for only one unknown variable, the lens. I will still be continuing other projects, such as my pushing film experiments. This will simply be a way to focus my attention.
I will post my results at the end of the week. If you’re interested stay tuned and be sure to please sign up to get my articles in your inbox. Have you ever done something like this? Let me know in the comments. I always look forward to chatting with you all.
If you would like to help me out with the cost of film, developing chemicals, and the upkeep of this website, please consider making a small donation through the yellow contribute button above. If you would rather purchase one of my zines, that would also help. Other ways to help that are free would be liking, sharing, and subscribing. Anything you do is always very much appreciated by me.
Until next time, stay motivated and keep shooting.
