Annaliese and I had some fun in the studio with some paint, film cameras and vintage lenses.

The paint Anna was using was non toxic, made for kids, just to avoid any allergic reactions or anything bad.

Equipment used:
Sony A7R III + Carl Zeiss 50mm Jena Dor f/1.8;
Nikon FM + Nikon AF NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8D + Kodak Ektachrome E100;
Canon EOS 500 + Canon 50mm f1.8 STM Prime Lens + Kodak Ultramax 400.

We used the A7R III with a vintage manual focus lens in the studio just to get some photos without having to wait for the film to be developed (and it’ll take a while to scan them as I do that myself, you can read more about it here). The Canon had a modern Canon nifty-fifty and this camera has AF (a single centre spot but still) and was loaded with Kodak Ultramax 400, 24 frames, and we shot that in the studio as well. That’s C41 negative film and cheap to develop. And the Nikon FM (the original FM) also had a modern Nikon nifty-fifty, but this camera doesn’t autofocus so it was all fully manual. We took the Nikon outdoors at the end of the shoot to get a few frames.

I should give Racquet (the film lab) a massive shoutout: the Ektachrome slide came off its canister so I took the whole camera to them and they managed to put it in a light box to protect the slides (without charging me for that)! Thank you guys!!!

I hope you enjoy the digital album. Photos from the film cameras as well as the full digital set only available on my Photography Education Patreon.
