AE-1 Adventures

ASA200 50mm f/5.6 1/125sec


Thankfully I was conveniently over prepared when I went out to shoot yesterday! A couple friends had to bail out on shooting at the last minute which came in handy when I got out to downtown and realized I forgot my SD card for shooting digital, and because I switched bags to bring both of my film cameras I had forgotten to bring my back up card as well. So I was left shooting entirely with the AE-1 for the day, which was a fun yet slightly nerve-racking experience. I’ve been known in the past to mess up a roll or two when it comes to shooting 35mm, and its still very much a learning and experimental stage for me. However at the end of the day the pictures did develop and I had captured a few fun scenes along the way.

This first scene caught my eye just a minute or two into the days shooting. I love the ironic twist to the backwards tourism, with her Big City New York hoody on while being lost in the extremely contrasting small city of Grand Rapids.

“Contrasting Awareness”

As the title of this pic suggests, I loved the contrasting levels of awareness in this scene. As the guys walks by oblivious to my existence the girl gives a nice smile in the background as I snap my shot.
