A picture is worth a thousand words…

It was an experience really. I really am lucky to have had the opportunity to have this camera in my bare hands and to use it. 

This past weekend I had the opportunity to shoot with a Bolex Reflex H16. Remember the camera I wrote about couple of weeks ago? Well, I signed it out from school, loaded the film and got ready to shoot.

I really had no idea what to shoot but once I started to pull the trigger, I really could not stop. I finished the whole film in one night. I took advantage of the Friday night vibe and brought my friends to do the famous mannequin challenge that is going on right now. It was Friday night and everyone was happy, so I think I could say that it was a productive shooting and everyone was excited about participating. Hopefully the results will be as exciting!

Unfortunately it takes  a couple of days to develop the film and so I could not post the video here. But, just like the title says: A picture is worth a thousand words.

This is me preparing the BOLEX H16 Reflex for shooting. 

The only thing that is in my head right now, is the fact that I am not sure if I measured the light correctly. I mean, it was indoors and I was always checking on the lenses to make sure the aperture was right. But I mean, either way there is nothing I can do about it now.
