Nikon N80/F80 images

 A few sample images taken with the Nikon N80/F80 film camera with kodak tri-x 400

The Nikon N80/F80 is a great film camera with many options at your finger tips, let the camera do everything itself and youll get great images. Shoot in Aperture mode or any of the other modes and you wont be disappointed.I will be posting a few more blogs in a month or so with some new images ive taken with this great camera.

Found Film Pinups

About a year ago a buddy of mine gave me afew of those vintage kodak film containers,in one of them was some film.He said that they were in his basement when he moved to the place and were full of dust,so he gave um to me.Up untill tonight they have been displayed as decor in my home.I always wondered what was on them so recently I decided I want to digital process my film by using a dslr and a lightbox (thanks Alex for the direction)So ive yet to make my setup,but wanted to see if I could do it with a phone lightbox and my dslr.Mind you this was a quick setup.I plan on scanning my own film and this film for better results in the future.

Asian Pacific Lunar Festival 2016

Asian Pacific Lunar Festival

The Asian Lunar festival was held on Saturday, January 30th in downtown Riverside,Ca. The first few shots were taken walking towards the festival.

(The first congregational church,and Parish house)

Riverside's finest even had a setup where the kids could get free stickers and pamphlets.

Many cosplayers hung out at the Chinese Pavilion (in the background) during the festival.

PEOPLE Walking around
(couldn't decide which to post,the color version or black and white)

(the Philippine table)

There was a lot to see, and many photographers out and about, with no shortage of subjects to shoot.

The image below was one of my favorites, because of the colors, and was one of those shots where I shot for the heck of it. 

Coming to the end of the festivities, my family and I went into the local museum.

Notice the window images. Look at the black and white version, and now look at the color version. Do you see the eye? I could not tell where it came from. The reflection of the window, or from somewhere else.

Collection of cameras

A few of my favorites from the collection

Passing the window on the second floor caught my eye

.....and out from the museum we went passing the church

Looking around one more time for something else to shoot,I always say look up.Photographers perspectives are pretty much the same,get low,shoot around waist levels,then eye level.Just remember look up.

The festival was fun. I thought I would have gotten some more shots of the festival and activities this year, but we showed up when none were scheduled earlier in the day. I recommend coming next yea,r and staying for the parade and fireworks and checking out the museums and galleries, or walking in and around the Mission inn.

Till next time thanks for viewing
