I took the Yashica out on a crisp sunny couple of days in January but sadly I overwound the film and it separated from the 35mm canister.
I didn’t understand what had happened until I opened the back of the camera to check, this is where the light leaks have come from.
I bundled the film into a film box and sealed it with tape. The team at Kirkless Photographic did a great job of trying to rescue the photos but the damage had been done.
I am not too disappointed as this was a test roll to see how I got on with the camera and how it performed.
There were only 2 shots out of focus which is great given my track record with rangefinders.
The light leaks are unavoidable in this instance but I think they add a certain something to these winter photos.
I will share my favourites over the next couple of days.
Starting with this shot:
Note that the Yashica is fine, it was my clumsiness that caused the film to snap!
