My New Old Gear

A couple of weeks ago a friend from the Bishops Stortford Camera Club gave me this Praktica LB camera and a couple of lenses as I was keen to give film photography a go. Film (black and white) was purchased along with a 28mm f2.8 lens to go along with the 50mm and 80-200mm f4.5-5.6 that came with the camera.

I’m half way through the first 36 exposure film and am really enjoying the whole process of slowing down and working out the correct exposure and (hopefully) getting the composition and exposure right in camera…only time will tell how successful I have been.
