Random Shots with my Olympus XA2

A few months ago I bought a Olympus XA2 film camera from eBay for a decent price. This camera is light and compact, and I can easily bring it with me everywhere I go. I find that film photography is still a bit challenging for me since I only have 24-36 exposures, and I won’t see the end result until it’s developed. Overall, I’m somewhat happy with how some my photos came out.

A Walk Around Campus

On Sunday, we took our dog Chibi to our university campus. We thought it would be nice to give him an extra-long outing, and a bath before Thanksgiving.

Of course, during the walk, my sister Wendy, her boyfriend Danny (travelingwithtech.com) and I, had our phones and film cameras ready to take photos of him and the campus.

Diving into the world of film photography

During my junior year of college, I had the opportunity to be a student assistant in my professor’s film class. I learned a lot about film photography, especially developing black and white film in the dark room. Being a student assistant in that class, gave me a new perspective in photography. When enrolled in the class, students were able to borrow a film camera for the entire quarter. This class really got me into film photography, but I never really went through with buying a film camera of my own. Two-years later, I finally bought my first film camera. When taking photos, I usually use my iPhone 7, and sometimes my Canon T5i (when traveling). Starting film is a bit nerve-wrecking because I won’t really know how my photos will turn out until it’s developed. But as a beginner, I’m not that afraid of making a mistake because every mistake I make is a lesson. I can’t wait start shooting, and learning more about film.
