    I picked up a Nikon N4004 for $15 from my buddy the other day. Here are the first few images I got out of it. All shot with Fuji Reala 100.

    I like #1 & #4
    #1 - because it kinda give it a childish image, an adult sitting on a slide with a soft toy, its ncie

    #4 because it looks like you're wife's a fairy, with only one wing! But its a cute photo

    # 2 didn't need as much of the background to make the photo work

    eg:
    I cropped it, and adjusted the levels very slightly to make the red more vibrant

    I like the adjustments. I actually dropped the red a little with curves from the origional photo. Yes it was all natural light. I don't have a shoe mount for the film camera yet. I have some speed lights for my d300 but they won't work on the older cameras.

    I like working with natural light, some people think it's a pain
    but with a couple of reflectors you're sorted!

    none of this carrying lights about!

    Yeah I like natural light too. Especially when working with film. However I don't mind lights when I need them.

    Great looking pictures. I really like the colors and the shallow depth of field, but some of them have a little too much headroom.
