5 Frames with an Olympus OM-10 and Ilford HP5 Plus – By Sam Larson

My Olympus OM-10 was a mistake. I hadn’t owned an SLR since I claimed my dad’s OM-2 for a high school photography class. I’d bought an Olympus 35RC a couple months prior and loved the form factor and quirky rangefinder vibe, but I wanted something more authoritative, with options for different lenses and the sharp-sounding smack of a mirror. Since that old OM-2 went to the great scrap heap in the sky at the hands of a sibling I found myself searching Ebay.

About 10 rolls all up. This obviously meant that I didn’t need to buy more film for a while and being younger at the time, this sat well with me. So I shot half of the rolls pretty quickly.
