So this month, September, I managed to get a roll shot in the day. Sure, it isn't the most difficult thing for me to do, but it pretty much lasted through the entire day. From morning, through to mid-evening when I clicked off the last frame. Turns out I rewound the film a bit early, but no biggie, as 33 frames is more than enough!
Borrowing my friend John's Exakta Varex, I decided to give it a whirl and see how it handled itself. Sure enough, it works like a charm! The shutter sounds beautiful, unlike mine with its incessant squawk!
Since I was using another Exakta with a more healthy shutter I decided to use some ORWO UN54+ 100ASA film in it. I rated it for 250ASA, which is about what this film seems to like being rated, and I am more than happy with the results from the day. Not a style of photography I am used to doing, abstract work that is, it was a fun challenge. The most challenging part was finding something that was going to work as an abstract.
I think I managed a few here or there..
