5 Frames with a Canon A-1 and Ilford FP4 – Alessia Becheri

As you can see, these shots are quite simple and don’t have much in common. To me, though, they have a precious value; in fact they represent the first time I ever shot using a Canon A-1 and a black & white film. That’s why I’d like to tell you about my experience.I got interested in analog photography last summer, but the Canon A-1 entered my life only in November. The camera seemed practically new, but the man who sold it wasn’t even sure it was functional. I bought it anyway, encouraged by the amazing bargain. Luckily, the camera worked. I’ve loved it since the second I lay eyes on it (or “her”, if we want to make it even more romantic).
