Road Trip Central Greece

3 days road trip to central Greece. Places visited were Meteora, Pyli Palaiokarias, and Plastira lake. Besides my canon 5dII, i carried with me my Super Ikonta 6×9 medium format camera, a 35mm Fujica 801st with the smc takumar 35/3.5 on, and a lomo 360. I also carried with me, Anna-Maria Genadieva, which is a girl, and not a camera. The film i used was only Kodak TX 400, although im more of an Ilford hp5 fan.

The weather was cold, snowing most of the time, but besides cold, it created a nice scenery for photographs. I already knew that my Ikonta had light leaking problems, from some tear on the bellows, which i dont fix because sometime it produces nice effects that i like, but on the other hand the pictures lack of sharpness and rich tones, which is a pity because the Tessar lens on that camera can produce quality pictures.

Funny thing was that, after i developed the films from my 35mm Fujica, i realised that this camera has also light leaking problem, in the chamber. That means that my backup film camera was also “problematic”… I have to fix that one though.

An even funniest/unfortunate thing happend… The only light tight film camera i had with me, was a toy camera, the lomo 360, which produces 360degree pictures. I had made a few shots with it, when i accidentaly dropped it and the film chamber opened, and the film got burnt 🙂

the bottom line, i had 3 film cameras with me that produced burnt images for various reasons. Do i care about it? No! thats the good thing about film, sometimes it has some unexpected results, which might produce a picture with more “character”, as long you care about the subject of course, and not the “technical” parts, of one photograph. Dont forget i had with me, my digital 5dII, and i have a lot of more clear/sharp/well exposed/etc images.
