    My grandma just gave me her old camera which is a 1976 Konica autoreflex TC. I decided to take it out this weekend and use it for the first time in about 25 years.

    I dont have a negative scanner so I just ordered a CD from walgreens when I got the film developed. I dont think the quality from the CD is that bad.

    I am still kinda new to photography and photoshop so any advice or critizism(Good or Bad) would be helpful. Thanks

    Hi abuccanero - I moved this thread over to the General Gallery where you should pick up move views. :) (Photoshop isn't considered an alternative process.)

    For a first outing with a "new-to-you" camera, I'd say you did very well. I like how you played with DOF here, especially in the first one.

    I really enjoy shooting with old cameras, they can be built like tanks and still give great results. Have fun with this one - hope to see more from you with this camera!

    I like these. They've got a real American feel to them and a "old" or "past" sort of theme to them, seems like a good series for the newly acquired 'old' camera.

    nice work.

    I love them too, but I am NOT a fan of putting your name so boldly in every corner. It's large and distracting.
