Last February I bought my first medium format film camera – a 1970’s-80s era Yashica Mat 124G Twin Lens Reflex camera that I found on ebay. I’ve since shot 8 rolls of film on it and I sent them off to be developed and scanned by Carmencita Film Labs just before we left on our trip to Asia. Last night they sent me my scans. I admit, I was a little nervous. Was the £125 I’d spent having them developed a total waste? Does my camera have light leaks? Is its light-meter, upon which I was basing all my exposures, faulty?
I opened up my WeTransfer file with some trepidation. Luckily my camera, quirks though it has, seems to be in pretty good working order. Here are some of my favourites from a few days that we spent down at our old family cottage at Black Point, on the North Shore of Nova Scotia.
