August 10, 2016

Like many film photography enthusiasts out there, I came to know and love film photography because someone first gave me a good film camera to use. In my case, it was the Nikon F3. A family friend had purchased this Nikon F3 in June 1981 (Serial# 1330000), which is one month before I was born, and I remember seeing it throughout my youth. Thus, this camera immediately gave me extra sentimental value.

I had occasionally shot film using cheap plastic cameras when I was in my teens in the 1990’s, but once I hit college, digital photography was all the rage. And when I was given this Nikon F3, my digital photography gear was soon laid to rest and given away as a lasting joyous resurgence of the love of film was rekindled in my heart.

I recently started a film photo blog with photos only taken with the classic Fujica V2 rangefinder (https://fujicav2.wordpress.com), but using that camera does not give me the same enthusiasm and joy as taking photos with the Nikon F3. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that it would be quite fun to start a photo blog solely dedicated to sharing photos newly taken with the Nikon F3 with different lenses, filters, and films.

Thanks for visiting. I hope you enjoy the photos.
