What a joy

This weekend I had the opportunity to use my K1000 with a Sigma 28mm f1.8 for some casual portraits in our sunroom. Its so tiny in comparison to my other rig and so much fun to use. Our local camera shop has some pretty cool 35mm film and I can't wait to see what 28mm looks like on film. When I first had a K1000, all I had was the 50mm f2 that came on it. I love the mechanical whizzing and click that come from the camera and the simplicity. Trying to seduce a camera buddy back into film, hopefully these shots will bring him back. I'll post something soon as I get it back.

It sure is great to go out and shoot film once in a while! Looking forward to the results

First shots

This was scanned by Walgreens, so it is what it is pixel-wise, but I'm happy with the results so far. Shot on Kodak 400, with the K1000 and a Sigma 28mm f1.8.
