This stained glass house looks a lot better on film or even digital than in reality?

I own an older version of this lens or actually its newer but I bought it a long time ago. It’s the same lens without the aperture ring. The G lens version. Unfortunately the digital connectors that talk to the camera stopped working. I’m also not able to use the G version manually on my film cameras since it doesn’t have an aperture ring.

I stumbled upon this lens. Looks almost identical but it has the aperture ring! I can use it on my older film cameras too! With the added benefit that if the digital connectors crap out I can use it manually; It has the aperture ring.

So far this lens is pretty nice. I’m happy with it. I used it to photograph the lunar eclipse and despite the weather being bad and getting some blurry photos, It was a pleasure to use. The lens is sharp and has nice colors.

It's made in Japan and I got it for $100 so I’m very happy with this lens.

Film Lunar Eclipse fail

Lunar Eclipse on film fail...
I recently got a new to me lens from ebay for 100 bucks that works on my film camera. I thought it would be fun to photograph the lunar eclipse on film, Unfortunately it was a cloudy night and most of the photos are blurry. The main picture looks cool but it’s from Friday, two days before. 

The best part about film is that its great at capturing memories, not necessarily documenting events. I did enjoy the eclipse since shooting film keeps me in the moment.

Kodak film favorites

Kodak film Favorites
Portra 800
The versatility of this film stock is my favorite part. I love shooting in low light and really appreciate the 800 film speed. I also love the colors. Portra 400 is popular and I shoot that as well but I prefer the colors of 800 alot more. It's perfect in almost all situations. It's pricy so watch out $$$$
Tri-X 400
I'm a stickler for timeless things and the look of Tri-X is timeless x 100. The grain texture is very attractive and real looking. Photographing family events on this is a must. It captures the emotion of my family at their best.
Ektar 100
Wow is the best word I can use for Ektar. The colors are bright and wonderful. It almost looks digital but still has the film look. If it's sunny outside this is the film I use. Also does well in lowlight with my VR lens. It's pricy but worth it!
Price, availability and need aside these are my go to film stocks. 
( fyi this photo was shot with Kodak Vision 3 )

Up at the Plaza Coral Gables
Inside the construction area of the Plaza Coral Gables is a small house where the owner didn't sellout. Reminded me of the Pixar movie UP.
