Way back when it was cold out I bought an old Mamiya Sekor 1000TL for a whopping $15 at a mass indoor garage sale at the dome in Henrietta. Last weekend I bought a roll of insanely expensive Kodak Portra 400 ($7+4 for developing=$11) and gave it a go cold turkey to test the camera. All I did was colour correct the images a little.
Grandpa Hans took a picture of me (he's the fellow who introduced me to things like depth of field, aperture and shutter speed) and asked if the camera had batteries since the meter light wasn't on. I honestly forgot cameras needed batteries for that sort of thing and was elated that my photographing wasn't dependent on batteries or light meters. Win for film!
