Tag Archives: Pentax Mz-7


Last year, I picked up a Pentax 35mm SLR and posted about it on Shoot With Personality. While I have posted a few blogs featuring photos taken with my ZX-7,  I still haven’t  used that camera quite as much as I should have. I felt I needed to correct this, so I decided to be very intentional about putting some film through the Pentax. I took it a step further by committing myself to shooting at least one entire roll of film exclusively in panoramic mode. Which is to say, some cameras have a switch which will mask off the top and bottom of the film plane to give a panoramic look. My Pentax is one such camera! I’d never used this feature on my ZX-7, and I thought it was time to shake things up! So I outfitted this camera with the 18-55mm lens from my Pentax dSLR, for the widest possible angle of view (and circular vignetting) on these panoramic photos. Here are a few of them (including some from the New Year’s Eve party I attended and shot all in panorama!)

Arm-length self-portraits are usually the only photographic evidence of my attendance to any sort of event where I’m doing most of the photography

Happy 2013, everybody!

See, wasn’t that a bit of fun?? Think I might have to purpose myself to taking panoramic photos more often!
