Canon SLR!

Guys! I got a new (old) Canon SLR (Film) camera from e-bay for a very cheap deal. I played around with it during my last two weekend trips in Belgium and Versailles. Its not as economical as digital, but I learnt a ‘cheap’ trick from my photography guru Arjun, to scan the negatives using the scanner, so I just develop the Film and scan it to the computer without printing it. But it took almost a week to learn it, here are some scanned to my flickr...Click..Click.. and that’s an ugly self portrait using my SLR.

The photos are so good. BTW, how can you take a self portrait with your own SLR camera?

hi Sid!

Thank you. Actually I took it in the mirror, same as this photo which I took with the digital, its taken in the same mirror.

Oh! I got it now. Its just great, looks so natural as if someone took it for you.

here also the trick was, when I was scaning, I put the negatives in the opposite direction(by mistake)so it dont look like mirror image.
