Film Project #10 / Konica EFJ or POP / Kodak Colorplus 200

It’s April Fool’s, but I thought it was a brand new month to start anew. March felt like a million years passing through. And I’m blaming it on Mercury Retrograde ๐Ÿคท

Today I’m sharing the results from Konica EFJ (or Konica Pop), loaded with Kodak Colorplus 200. I was pretty pleased, despite the light leak in half of the pictures. It could be due to the sides, where there’s suppose to be a layer of sponge/rubber, but can’t expect an old camera to keep up with time.

A car came right after, and the picture still came out right. Thank you universe.

I have more shots in another camera, but I’m not done with the roll (yet). Guess i’ll hurry and get out of the house since the retrograde had me staying at home 24/7. The rain is not helping either ๐Ÿ˜

A vlog might come out soon from my trip to Japan last September. I’m working with the footage(s) right now, and letting my creative juices do its thing. It’s been awhile;;

May April be a better month for everyone.
Take care of yourself first.

Till next post!

Film Project #9 / Fujica DL100 / Kodak Colorplus 200

Happy Lunar New Year! How is 2019 treating you?

I’m back to update this blog, for I have some free time after leaving my job on the last day of January. I went back to Malaysia for the annual CNY celebrations at Grandpa’s. Felt good to have some time out from the city. Well, now I’m back to reality, and trying to sort out my life again.

SO! This will be the last of Fujica DL100, as I’ll try to focus getting my film right with the other cameras.

Once bitten, twice shy. I finally figured out how to load a film properly into the Konica EFJ. (The camera that resulted in a blank film once) I shall try to develop it asap!

Now, we’re continuing the Exploring Little India series from last post!

Film Project #8 / Fujica DL100 / Fujicolor C200

Hi friends!

How is everyone doing? I started a full-time job from November, so my cloudy days are over. Now I’m almost 1 month into work, and it’s full of ups and downs. Sometimes I feel like I’m numb. Other times, I feel inadequate.

Back to film!

There was this one week where my Mom suggested to pay a visit to the Shuanglin Temple @Toa Payoh, and another temple @bugis. And so we embarked on our journey.

Film Project #7 / Fujica DL100 / Fujicolor C200

Hi friends!

I finally had film photos not taken with my Canonet QL17. Introducing Fujica DL100 that I purchased in Tokyo. I was planning on getting a point-and-shoot camera due to the ease of usage, and this guy came along. I fell in love because of the sound it makes with every shot. Warning: Might be embarrassing if you’re taking pictures in a quiet museum.

All pictures were taken in Singapore.

Film Project #6 / Canon QL17 / Fujicolor C200

Hi friends!
Any anime recommendations?

I’ve watched Full Metal Alchemist (้‹ผใฎ้Œฌ้‡‘่ก“ๅธซ) and One Punch Man (ใƒฏใƒณใƒ‘ใƒณใƒžใƒณ).ย  Recently, I’ve been enjoying Food Wars: Shokugeki no Soma (้ฃŸๆˆŸใฎใ‚ฝใƒผใƒž) on Netflix. The food details were especially pleasing. But please do not watch when hungry!

Anyway… I feel like I’m slowly getting a hang of my Canonet QL17. I’ve been talking about this camera with every film post, but this is a tough one to crack, or is it just me?

Till next time!

Film Project #5 / Canonet QL17 / Kodak ColorPlus 200

Hi friends! How is everyone doing?

Today I’m sharing my pictures from my second trip to Japan of the year, in September. Most of my pictures turn out to reflect my vision without my glasses. While I still struggle to find a job, it sure does gives me time to explore and keep up with my film projects.

Film failure #2: I bought a Konica EFJ Auto Date in Nagoya (this trip), but the film did not went in, so I was practically taking nothing. Moment of loss when the film shop told me that it was an empty roll. (I’m keeping a record on my failures here.)

Film is definitely an adventure.

Film Project #4 / Kodak PowerFlash

Hi friends! I’m back with more film pictures. I have to admit pursuing film has been burning a hole in my pocket, considering I’m still broke and jobless since returning home. I wish I could’ve pursued a hobby that cost lesser, but it sure does makes me happy.

So I took with another disposable camera that my brother was using halfway through. It requires less of trying to figure out how to conduct my shots, and a lot faster to capture specific moments. It turned out a lot better than my pictures from my Canonet QL17, this is depressing…

Less talk, more visuals!

How people dress themselves on these streets is definitely a pleasure to look at. It’s as if a series of fashion magazine transformed into real life humans, flashing before your eyes like a runway. A good inspirational walk if you’re trying to get some fashion ideas.

I hope you’re prepared to feel like you’re short-sighted with my next batch of pictures, cause it sure does look like pictures taken without glasses.
