So I guess I'll start out this blog with what cameras I use. I started out with Canon 7D and the 50mm 1.4, the kit lens 28-135mm, and 10-22mm. I was very satisfied with using all three for portraits, landscape, and everything in between. It was then the Mark I version and not the Mark II. I've used it for couple years and got some great photos.
I got super into photography and found myself looking into film cameras. Since I started out with Canon I decided to stick with it. I got great images and lenses were awesome and I was comfortable with its menu system and how I used it. I went on Craigslist and looked for film cameras. At the time it was about 2010? 2011? I'm not 100% sure on it but I found a Canon AE-1 Program with a 50mm 1.8 Lens that had a flash and other accessories for about $50.00. I thought it was a great deal and purchased it. Now I looked online on how to use the camera and so forth but didn't really get into it until this past 2 years.
In the mean time I upgraded my 7D to the 80D due to me wanting to go into video and photo. The 80D has great autofocus capabilities and it basically was a nice upgrade for me on the 7D Mk I. So currently I have 2 cameras besides my phone. The Canon 80D and the Canon AE-1 Program. Both I LOVE to use and on my trip to Korea this past April 2017 I almost exclusively used my film camera to take photos. Images on it came out surprisingly well since I am still new to using film. I used the Kodak TX 400, Kodak Gold 400, and Fuji Color 400. The Kodak Gold and Fuji Color was cheap and I didn't want to spend too much on film so I got those. The Kodak TX 400 is black and white film and got that recommendation from a friend who shoots great film photos. You can check his work on @Jovellyism and @jovell.
I got GREAT shots on these rolls of film and made you appreciate and actually think about what kind of shots you wanted to take since there is a limited amount of photos you take with each roll. With that I would recommend anyone who wants to start out to get some cheap digital camera to learn the mechanisms of taking a photo and just shoot away. Then goto a film camera and learn it almost in a Zen state of thinking. It is also very nice to when you get your photos developed to see what came out well and what didn't. Almost like a Christmas present to yourself. Haha.
So yea. Those are my cameras I use and not really much on anything else. I'll come up with stuff to post on my blog and just so you guys know, there isn't a schedule/route I'm taking this blog. Just whatever comes to mind about my life and photography will be posted. Maybe I'll post some tips and tricks and news worthy stuff down the line but thats something in the future and we aren't there yet.
Have fun shooting and see you guys later!
