For a while, I have been admiring the film shooters of the past. For my 30th birthday ( that happened almost 1 year ago) my wife bought me a film camera and a roll of black and white C41 processable film.
This image of the Tulips, she bought to brighten our home, was the first image I created using that film camera. A Canon EOS 33. She put a lot of thought into it and made sure that my film camera system could take the lenses I had previously purchased for my digital system, the EF lens series. The Tulips were taken with my 50mm 1.4 at f/2 (I think). The film I am currently using is the Ilford 400 XP2.
Not only is this image special to me because it was my first film image, but it also makes me smile because it depicts something my wife loves (flowers for the home) with something she bought out of love, to invest in me, for something I love.
