A lot of film

Posted in Uncategorized by klaasgoethals on 09/05/2011

I’m leaving to the Riviera Maya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Riviera_Maya) on wednesday, so I won’t post anything the upcoming three weeks. Went buying film last week in Mexico City for my trip, and afterwards I really felt like a little boy that gets new toys from his parents, so I made some pics of it. I love film, too bad though that it’s so expensive…

I made this photo’s with my Sony A200 and Minolta 50mm f1.7. I am going to try some color film as well, Fuji Reala in this case. At first I wanted to buy Fuji Velvia, untill I asked for the price and they told me that it costed 175 peso’s for one roll (more than 10 euro’s). Reala seems like a nice alternative, since it’s not that expensive…

About my gear: you see a Minolta 7000i and a Minolta 7xi, a Tokina 28-70 f2.8 lens and a Minolta 70-210 f4 lens (‘the Beercan’). You don’t see: a Minolta 50mm f1.7 lens, a Minolta 3600 flash and a Sony A200 (which I’m not going to take with me to the Riviera Maya though).

And to end this post, a photo that I made at the beginning of my year Mexico, a photo of my Mexican ‘grandfather’, Don Juvencio Larrañaga, who is a photographer as well (actually, he started the family business, the studio, and is a well known and respected photographer here in Mexico).

Thanks for reading, and make sure to check this blog in a few weeks!
