Canon EOS 3 and Kodak Portra 800

Todd my co-worker had just bought the Canon Eos 3 camera and I asked him if I could borrowed the camera before he actually tested out himself and he surprisingly said “Okay.” As soon as I got off from work, I drove to the store and bought a roll of Kodak, Portra 800 roll of film. I also needed help from someone who wanted their pictures taken. Finding someone to photograph is actually hard, because many people might take or post many selfies all the time but when it comes to be in front of a camera they usually decline the offer. so… what to do? I posted a small video on my “story” on Facebook asking if someone was interested in a quick photo shoot with my film camera and my friend Gloria Penaloza offered to help me. And this is how this blog became a reality.

When I did this photo-shoot, I used my 85mm lens 1.2 and a roll of Kodak Portra 800. Here’s some samples of my best shots.

Some of the pictures, I pressed the shutter as she was closing her eyes.

I didn’t know how to use the focus points and I also focus and re-frame my shot and the consequences are blurry photographs. Im not sure what I did wrong for sure but I’m hoping that I can borrow the camera and try again. Here are my samples of my blurry photographs.

The shutter button was kind of sensitive and I miss fired a couple of shots.

I really like this camera a lot and the main reason is because I can use all of my L-Series lenses that I use on my Canon 5D Mark III and put them on the Canon EOS 3 without any adapters. I would really like to shoot this camera with my 70-200mm f/2.8L II USM lens, we’ll see what happens in the future. But for now this camera gets a five stars from me because the errors were operator errors. I hope you guys like this post, let me know what you guys think.

Let’s shoot some film.
