Oh dear, all eyes are on me now as I’m up to bat for this 600 on a 600 Project. When I received this camera, I was pretty anxious to shoot it; I hadn’t touched one of these in years. So, in order to use the camera in a timely matter I decided to shoot my 8 shots all in one shoot. I headed out to a park with a few friends and 600 in hand and a pack of PX-680 American Woods edition film. I had been wanting to shoot this stuff forever. Something about the wood frame really speaks to me, for some reason.
Back to the camera, though. Truth be told, though, I had a rough time with this thing and I’m not too thrilled with the images I got. I don’t know exactly what it was. Maybe it was the fact that I couldn’t get up close and personal with the subject as I normally do with my SX-70. Maybe the oranges tones or the underexposure, this thing was simple and yet so tricky at the same time.
But that’s enough complaining from me. All in all, I had quite the learning experience with this camera. Now that I know its quirks and I see how differently it can be used, whether on a lavish photo shoot like Francisco or just capturing moments in your day to day life and of the ones you love as Chris did, I want to push this things to its limits. The fact that are 73 more of you on this camera alone takes me back and I can’t wait to see what else this camera can do and what all of you can do with it! Thanks again for being a part of this and making this possible, and of course thanks to The Impossible Project for being so amazing and such an asset to this project. I eagerly look forward to what all of you create with this little box.
