Halloween seemed like a good subject to try some of my first film photos in a long time.  The Petri Color 35, a 35mm film camera with a 44mm f2.8 lens and FujiColor Pro 400H film makes a very nice image with soft skin colors against a vibrant background.  This digital image was produced at the time the film was developed.  Since this image was delivered as a JPG, it did not need much post processing.

These older cameras like the Petri Color 35 really make the photographer think about what he is about to do as he prepares to make a photograph.  It does have a light meter, but no rangefinder.  So, the photographer must use his best guess of the distance while making the depth of field large enough and the shutter speed fast enough to keep the subject sharp.
