Yashica Mat 124G and Pentax K1000

Hey guys, just got two new cameras!

The first is a Pentax K1000 which will be a fun SLR to play with.  Trying out a roll already and it feels pretty good so far.

The real find though is a Yashica Mat 124G! I love TRLs and I only have a Yashica A and a Blackbird Fly (doesn’t really count does it?). So since, it just past my birthday I decided to treat myself. Unfortunately the light meter seems to have some problems when changing aperatures. It’s fine but I really didnt want the hassle of carrying a hand light meter (an unreliable one at that) anymore.

OK gonna shoot some film with these and post some photos latr!

First Post! + The Holga

Whooo First post!

Hi everybody, my name is Anthony and this is my blog called “Cameras, Cars, and Comics” which can be found at LiveByTheCs.wordpress.com.

To summarize, this blog will be a place where I can talk about my three loves in life: cameras, cars, and comics.
I’m a photo major in college and I love to experiment with different cameras, films, and other equipment. I will often post photos I’ve taken etc. At the moment It’s kind of a hobby so don’t expect pro quality!

My other love is my car. I drive an ’08 Honda Fit. I knew I knew I wasn’t going for speed so i went for style instead. I’ll post photos of my car and other cars from meets or car shows. I’ll also talk about what I’ve done to my car.

Lastly is my love for comics. I’m kind of a geek, so you’ll hear me rant a lot about comic books, movies, and even anime and manga.

Now about the Holga.

I’ve been into lo-fi and lomography these last few months and have tried many cameras like the Diana, Diana Mini, BlackBird Fly, etc. but this is my first experience with the Holga.

If you don’t know about lomography or the holga, I suggest you go to this website: http://www.squarefrog.co.uk/
A great place to learn about all kinds of stuff from the Holga to setting up your own darkroom (kind of).

So far the Holga has been pretty interesting. I don’t like not using a meter, but being limited is kind of the point I guess. Using 120 film is a new thing to me also.
So far I’ve been getting some cool effects and I am trying different films with it.

Here are some test shots so far:
Used Fuji Pro 400H.

Next I am gonna talk about either Wek Fest or my car.

Latr!
