    Here are some pictures from my first roll of film off my new elan IIe. I still have no composition skills (i'm starting to read up though), I just messed around with some shooting modes and settings and this is what I produced. Any comments suggestions appreciated.

    The first 2 are taken with the 28-80 lens and the last 2 are taken with the 50mm 1.8 lens.

    Nice job, third in particular came out nicely. Looks like the last was shot a little too slowly (some shake). First one would have been a tricky exposure, looks like you got it right. Congrats.

    The Elan series are great cameras.

    Don't be afraid to turn it on its end (portrait orientation).

    Thanks a lot guys. I think in the last shot i wanted the grill to be in focus and let the aperture take over, but I don't think I was close enough to make that obvious. I was surprised at how clear the bottle came out using that 28-80 lens. The film was ISO200 (fuji) btw.

    On the topic of composition, you may want to leave some room in front of the car to get a more balanced image. That way it'll look like the car has somehwere to go to.
