Retro craig

Craig, grinning evilly at his camera. I've recently got a SLR film camera, and this is one of the first photos I took with it, hence the poor focus. The colouring it due to the light being provided by an energy-saver flourescent bulb - I should have used a flash for the photo.

Haha, I was really scared of my SLR when I first got it. Like, so many things I can do! What if I break something? I never read the manual, of course. I don't even know where it is...

Continue to share your stuff, please? :D

I'm rather liking the SLR, though it's annoying having to wait to find out if the photo came out. That's the big advantage of digital - you can see straight away what effect the exposure/arperture actually had on the photo. Plus digital is a lot cheaper to run. What I really want is a *proper* digital SLR, but I'd never use it enough to justify the cost.

Don't worry, I've got more photos. They'll appear in a few weeks, when I'm next in the same place as a film scanner.

I can't even begin to tell you how much money I've wasted on film, haha. Although my digital SLR cost me twice as much as my film SLR, that's all I had to pay. With the film it's $200+ to buy the camera, and then I have to buy film every week (or every other week), and I have to pay to get it developed about twice a week, and then I have to pay to buy paper to print from in the lab...

Yeah, using film is pretty expensive, haha! I can't wait until next quarter when I'm finally "allowed" to use digital for classes.
