Sao Miguel in 35mm

All of these images were shot with a small Contax T2.  I struggled with what film cameras to bring, and opted for small size and simplicity.  I took a Rolleiflex to shoot medium format.  The colors from film are beautiful and rich.  All of these images were shot with either Portra 400 or Portra 160.  This place is a photographer’s paradise, and for all others the same.  The Contax T2 performed well except when I missed the mark.  It has a great sharp lens and fits in one’s pants pocket.  Depending on the scene, one uses the exposure compensation dial to tailor things.  I didn’t pay attention to the overexposure warnings, one of the great benefits of color negative film.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life.
