Katie and I headed to Shreveport, LA and Caddo Lake in Uncertain, TX for the Fourth of July. Had a blast checking out some antique stores, the small towns, and the lake was beautiful.
While we were down there, brought the Mamiya M645 1000S and shot a couple rolls of film. In addition, Katie and I did a short travel blog combined with a small review of the Mamiya M645 1000S. At some point I might go and do a more in depth review on it, as well as on some other cameras. This was essentially just a kind of test run. Check out the video below, as well as some of the photos of the area!
Here are some of my favorite shots from the trip.
As far as film equipment goes, I brought along the Mamiya M645 1000S, the Mamiya-Sekor 45mm f/2.8, the Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/1.9, and the Mamiya-Sekor 210mm f/4.0. Shot 3 rolls of film. One roll of Kodak Portra 400, one roll of Fujifilm Pro 400H, and one roll of Kodak Ektar 100. Out of the films, Portra is my favorite for it's warm tones. Ektar is my second favorite because of its very unique color rendering. The Fuji Pro 400H is nice, but is fairy flat in color compared to the other film stocks.
Overall, it was a really great trip. The small towns are really quite lovely, and Caddo Lake was very beautiful. I plan on doing some more video reviews at some point covering the Hasselblad 1000F, and a 1933 Rolleiflex TLR.
