@Floyd I think the key is always have it with me! Swimming pools are awesome for this. @Gaskelski Thank you very much! When you have an old camera in your hands it feels like a duty to try hard @Ewa I am uploading more for sure! :) @Vivaldi Can't wait to see the shots!! :)

Alex, you know what I think of this set. Great examples for the camera review and I am so glad it has inspired you to work with the film again from time to time. Give us some more!

You really know how to get the best out of the Smena, no question about that! Really fab shots. Aquaman has such a great feel.

@Mathew I got a long story of troubles focusing, and always also tend to forget at least 1 random setting all the times, keep trying! :)) @Vivaldi Thank you very much! All of them are xprocessed so the effect is even stronger, but I love how easy is to double expose with the Smena. The one thing is that it's too easy to get your finger in the middle of the shutter cock (creating super weird burned shots) Shot them years ago but I am getting some rolls for the russian lady now... ^^

I saw them on camera review. Great stuff. I must say these are the best Smena shots I have seen. Shows it is a great camera in the hands of someone who knows what he is doing. I guess this is xprocessed nevertheless I don't think we can get that with my fancy digital.
