My orange Sprocket Rocket never leaves me, it always has a place of its own in my bag. Whenever I chance upon something unique, it will come to my rescu, to capture my favorite moment in film. I was excited when I first received my funky orange Sprocket Rocket last October, and now I am even more excited to share with you my experience with shooting with the amazing camera upon receiving my first roll of film.
I could hear my orange love screaming to me as I unpacked my new-found baby, the Sprocket Rocket Orange. His body, with the shocking orange outfit he was wearing, just makes me love him more. As soon as I held him in my hands, I knew I made the right choice, he was the one for me.
Almost immediately, I equipped him with my favorite 35mm roll and brought him out for a walk. I have to say that the best thing about him is that he gives me so much control! I can always wind and rewind the film as and when I like to create stunning multiple exposure photos.
Frankly speaking, I have to admit I could not understand him fully at first. I tend to miss the small white indications he gave me to allow me to know where is my next frame. However, as I spend more time with him, our relationship became better and I am able to catch his ‘hints’ (white dots) better. One tip I’ve learned is to keep your eye on him while winding, so you will never miss the indications!
I love the babies we produced together; the beauty of panoramic photographs is amazing. I will not say I am an expert in using the Sprocket Rocket for now, but one thing I’m sure is that I will bring him out for walks more often to build our relationship. Hopefully, one day, together with my orange baby, we would produce fantastic photographs!
