Reflection - Tias in Lanzarote by 35mm_photographs
Tias, Lanzarote - August 2012

This image was taken using a Pentax P30, 35mm film camera, which uses manual focus lenses with the K-mount bayonet fitting. The lens used to take this photograph was a Rikenon 1:2 50mm, which was originally off a Richo KR-10 (super). At about 510 grams, the Pentax P30 (no. 3702885) is easy to carry and handle and has shutter speeds from 1/1000 of a second to 1 second. The automatic mode on this film camera chooses the best shutter speed and aperture setting to give the novice photographer a better chance of capturing a good image. It also has a semi-automatic mode as well, which chooses most of the settings but allows for more creativity. There is also a totally manual setting for the brave.

The film used was Fujicolor C200, a budget-priced film (expire date April 2014) processed by Jessops in Barnstaple. The negatives were scanned using an Ion Pics 2 SD.

Not only has this created a market for new artists but established, lesser known creators (that have been flying below the radar) are now beginning to ride on the crest of the wave. We read reviews, visit galleries, go shopping and are sometimes captured by cynical marketing.
