Dad's old Canon F-1 Film Camera

This weekend I dusted off my dad's old Canon F-1 film camera that he gave to me last year. The thought of shooting this camera was something special, since he used it to capture moments of me and my siblings growing up. The Canon F-1 is 100% manual, meaning no auto-focus or metering - nothing. The light meter didn't work so I used my light meter app on my iPhone to figure out the proper exposure. I never shot with it, so I made a few shots 2 to 3 stops over-exposed at f 1.4 using Kodak Portra 160. Needless to say I was happy with the results and had to post these two photos. I plan to post more from this roll later this week.

I will definitely use this camera more often and I hope one day I'll be able to pass it along to one of my boys.
