Montevideo Express (Bonus): Film

By

During my recent trip to Montevideo, I made sure to chronicle my daily adventures with two Nikon DSLRs and a bunch of really nice Nikkor glass. Despite my love for Nikon’s flagship digital cameras, I’m still a bit nostalgic for the bygone 35mm film days. Since my Nikon F100 isn’t that heavy, and can use all the same lenses as my DSLRs, I threw it in my bag with a few rolls of film. Whenever I saw a subject that really popped out at me, I took photos with both digital and film cameras.

Special thanks to U.S. Embassy Montevideo Social Media Manager Pablo Castro for the first shot, and for the other candids sprinkled throughout this post, which show me taking pictures at some iconic sites around the city. Many of my film shots are similar to those I posted in previous “Montevideo Express” installments except that they’re all captured on 35mm film with a Nikon F100. The F100 is an amazing analog light capturing device, but it doesn’t log EXIF data like its digital counterparts. Thus, I don’t have any of the exposure and focal length information readily available. To make things simple, I’ve just listed the camera and type of film used for each shot. Enjoy the grainy goodness!
