In 2016, I have been shooting digital over film all the way. My film camera, Nikon EM on a drawer caught my eyes. I realized I had two rolls of 100 ISO, which will be expired more than a year. I decided to let my best friend, Carlo learn how to open the film camera and put the roll in it without the instruction. He couldn’t figure out until I gave him some hints. He finally did it! haha!
Therefore, the roll began. I found it difficult to carry the film camera with me everyday because the photos with both of film and digital cameras are similar. I kept forgetting to grab the film camera before it got dark. It doesn’t have a built-in flash. I tried my best to capture the perfect pictures in good time.
Here are all of the developed photos. I opted out a few underexposed ones.
Here are 12 portrait photos taken using my Nikon EM with 800 ISO film. I made a little mistake because to bad lighting. They look amazing, though. I particularly took photos of people and I told them to smile with their closing mouths. I notice a great deal of people excitedly smile with the selfie or portrait pictures nowadays. They take more than 100 pictures for a day. Some refused to show them with their deadpan looks. This is not like 20 or more years ago. They love the old-fashioned photos. They only have a few perfect ones unlike the present.
These people I took the photos of are unique. Don’t matter how serious or happy they look with their natural smiles. Their looks are beautiful and handsome.
Well, I accidentally rewinded the first roll of 800 ISO after loading it in Nikon EM. I thought I would toss the roll or just keep it for my treasure. Nonetheless, there is something lucky I found on the Internet. I successfully got film out of its canister!
First, you have to rewind the roll until it is smooth. Then, put the blank film in the canister deeply just like half inch. Lastly, rewind it until it gets stuck. If it doesn’t work, take the blank film out and put it again. Rewind it. See the GIF.
See how I can get the film out of its canister! Whooo!
