    i’m a graduated 2-d media artist (painter) and was thinking about doing some photography. i prefer film. i’m on a tight budget. and i basically wanted to shoot on the “street.” people. buildings. the like. does anyone have suggestions with some bodies and lenses? thanks a lot for your time.

    well… if you want to shoot on the street, you’ll need something small and light so that it will be easy to carry it around. you might want to consider a cheaper rangefinder like the canonet, the minolta hi-matic series or a yashica. If you want to go for a single lens reflex model, take any body you like that gives you full manual control (nikon, canon, minolta, yashica, … who cares…) and choose at least one wideangle (like a 28mm f/2.8) and one very fast general lens (like a 50mm f/1.4). You could also use a long lens like a 200mm but it is not essential. What you really need is short and fast lenses and a body that you can control manually.

    not really hard light, i’d say quite soft actually, and very nicely made!

    well, bacsa… actually… yeah… you are right
    this is pretty soft light… but…
    at this point we used our ‘hard light setup’ which means one very strong light.
    however after a couple of shots we turned the light to the same wall the model is leaning against so the wall softened the light reflecting onto her face.

    the only hardness is at her pinky 😉
