After seeing the history of Nikon online, fond memories of my first camera as a child came to mind. It was a black film SLR. The camera was a Nikon FE, a hand-me-down from an uncle. So I thought it would be awesome to find and own my original camera. After some research and failed bids on eBay I got my hands on a mint black FE2, an upgraded version of the Nikon FE. This post will mark my shift to back to film photography. It was a rather slow re-learning process but I finally got my workflow set from shooting, selecting a lab to develop film and scanning the film to digital, the most cumbersome step in the process.
It may be worth noting that it wasn't until I read a book then about photography entitled: "The Complete Kodak Book of Photogrphy" that I really started to understand what I was doing from exposure, composition and understanding the tools of photography. Then shutter bug bit. Years go by and I still relish photography, even more so today.
Allow me to introduce the newest members of my photography family.
The blog is about the Philippines... the less photographed side of it. My hope is that as I develop the series, the story I tell about trivial life in the country resonates with its readers.
