First Photos: Asahi Pentax SP 1000

All the other First Photos posts were taken with bought cameras.

The camera that took these shots was a gift from father to daughter, and as a father of daughters I was grateful for the chance to test it out.

These shots were taken while shooting for the Darkroom’s April photo contest.

The Takumar 55mm lens let me get almost as close as the Nikon FG using extension tubes.


The lens also creates a very consistent background effect up close.
