a while ago i borrowed an old Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) camera, loaded it up with a roll of Ilford FP4 120 film and headed out. This camera compared to my Canon EOS60D is a massive step back in time, no meter, no preview screen, no auto focus, etc etc.
Also the screen works in reverse which took some getting used to. I did not take my DSLR and tried to remember the settings when the only camera i had ( a Zenith brick) which was also limited with the lack of a meter and preview screens.
A happy time was spent as i reacquainted myself with the workings, film duly used, off to the local lab to have it processed, my darkroom equipment has long gone, and then the wait for the CD with the images to see if they had worked.
Considering it has been an while, i was quite pleased with results, some processing using Silver Efex and they are not too bad. Even thought i would add a few to this blog.
So now to get some more film from the Photography Show at Birmingham which is in the next week and then load up and head out.
