This is why I shoot film.
I picked up this Kodak Retina iiic (1957-1960) on my local Craigslist for an incredible price. I put in some cheapy Kentmere 400 (24 exp.) this weekend and just started snapping pics of my wife doing errands. Here she is inside Safeway, looking hot as shit.
This image is practically unaltered. I clone stamped some dust out of the negative, but I didn’t touch the exposure or contrast or sharpness in either the scanning software or in Photoshop. This sharpness and contrast is a result of Once upon a time when quality glass and components were what mattered most.
This camera is 57-54 years old.
