Playing with my “new” antique camera!

I have always loved the look of vintage cameras and I fondly remember the days of photographing with film, so I was SUPER excited to come across this beautiful Yashica Twin Lens Reflex Camera from the 1950s recently.  One of my awesome brides from the past, Kassi, volunteered to help me test this baby out last week, so we made a trip to Hemisfair Plaza to do the first vintage test shoot in an outdoor setting.  Reminiscing on the wonderful film days as I was, I had conveniently forgotten the fact that you actually have to wait several days as the film is processed before you get to see results!!  Haha.  After anxiously awaiting the results from two rolls of film, I finally have a chance to share the images!  I am honestly surprised that the color roll turned out at all…that roll of film came with the camera, and was definately past expired, but I figured I would try it out and see what results we got anyway.  Interesting!  The B&Ws are definately my favorites, and I think I will just stick to usuing B&W film with this camera anyway.  Stay tuned for shots from my indoor vintage test shoot, which we are doing this Friday.  I can’t wait!

All of these images are straight out of the camera!  Well, technically, they are scans of the negatives, which are right out the camera, but you get the gist.  There has been NO processing, color tweaking, enhancement, etc. of any kind, and
