This past week was serendipitous. I was shooting a model on a field on a farm with my Minolta when and the owner pulled up in his pickup truck. He noticed me shooting 35mm film and told me, "I'll be right back". Not sure of what was going on, and a little nervous because I was on his property, I wasn't sure whether or not to wait for his return.
To my surprise, he came back with a dusty old Canon AE-1 and a lens that he had dug out of his barn. He handed me the camera free of charge and told me to see if I could get it working.
The next day, I took it to my local camera shop. After a little bit of cleaning, and slapping new batteries in, the camera was in perfect working condition! I proceeded to shoot my entire shoot with said Canon AE-1. Here is what I created.
