Timber – Gossau, February 2014 – Ilford Sportsman (Mk II)

Last month, I saved an old camera from the trash – an "Ilford Sportsman". I was able to fix it (the shutter was stuck) and ran a roll of cheap ISO 200 film through it. The results are far from perfect. The colors don’t pop, the lens isn’t the sharpest (especially in the corners) and I’m sure, that I made some errors while figuring out the sunny16-rule (this is an all-manual camera and I don’t have a light-meter) …but I guess, other people try to reach such results with instagram-filters:-)

My blog turned one year old yesterday. Thanks to all those who follow it, reblog and like my stuff. I’ll keep on snapping pictures – as I do on the bottom of this photograph:
