Zenit 122 At Home

Taking a break from Grad show preparations (2 weeks left!!) and decided to start this morning easy with a new blog post. Last January, I met up with Laurence of thecdsource and bought their second hand Zenit 122. Because I am sooo smart (sarcasm) I decided to delve in to the wonderful world of Soviet cameras without any prior knowledge (but I did some light research on the topic). There were a few differences from my Canon FTB but it’s still an SLR so it wasn’t too foreign. After much research and two test rolls (this photo set being the second), I learned that the Zenit is a mighty, sturdy camera (I actually dropped it on the sidewalk huhuhu) that takes great macro pictures and is known for it’s fantastic bokeh effect. One of my projects in the future is to shoot a whole roll of macro shots with this baby.

For now please enjoy these photo series of my pets at home 🙂
