Wild West Adventure (Bonus): Film

During a recent trip to America’s Wild West with my wife, I made sure to chronicle our daily adventures with my new Nikon D4 and a bunch of really nice Nikkor glass. However, just because I invested my firstborn child’s college fund in a DSLR and lenses that I rarely get to use didn’t mean that I was going to leave my $250 film camera at home. Thanks to a generous friend who happens to suck at photography, I also have a freezer full of more 35mm film than I know what to do with. Thus, I figured that this vacation would be as good a reason as any to bust out the analog light-capturing gear. Some of these shots are similar to those in my previous posts except that these are all captured on Fuji Velvia 100F slide film (E-6) with a Nikon F100. Also, because the F100 doesn’t log EXIF data, I don’t have any of the exposure and focal length information readily available for any of the shots. Who really cares about that stuff anyway? Just sit back and enjoy the pretty colors.
