Minolta

As you all know, I've been the proud owner of a lovely Minolta X-300. It's my first and most beloved film camera. 





But as the saying goes 'all good things come to an end' and sadly this camera has found itself in retirement. Unfortunately its shutter started sticking resulting in the disappointing half black photos that you can see below. 






On the one hand, I am heartbroken that the love of my film photography life has had its time, on the other, I am excited to start experimenting with a superior camera body with better mechanics. This means that I can really delve into better photographic skills. I can announce that as of today, I am now the proud owner of my next film photography camera body: the Minolta SR-T 101. It's a gorgeous vintage mechanical beast of a camera! and I'm psyched to start using it. I have a lot to learn before I put film in it though, so lots of practising and researching to be done. :)
