It's been really really long since I last updated this blog. To my defense, school has been really arduous and I barely have time to do things other than finishing my tutorials and revising for tests.
Anyway, I purchased myself an analogue camera a few weeks back. It is a Canon AE-1 camera. I've been wanting to have a film camera for so long. There is something about film photography that just really amuses me – the grainy textures, vintage colors, and the mystique feeling it has by not allowing you to see the result until it is developed.
My first roll of film didn't produce as good of a result as I had expected it to be. In addition to my ludicrosity of deliberately opening the back cover of the camera, exposing the undeveloped film to direct sunlight, I am still not very familiar in focusing this baby to the object I'm capturing. I am pretty ashamed to say that almost 70% of the pictures that I took this time are out of focus. However, here are some of the nicer ones that I took during a collaboration photo shoot with Raffles Runway.
The light-leaks effect on the last photo was unintentional, by the way. But I'm just so looking forward to take more pictures with my Canon AE-1. I've set myself a goal to go out more this year and really try to appreciate the beautiful things around me and materialize them in the form of photos.
