Week 11c&d – Mr and Mrs Jones (Part 1) – Ilford HP5+ (+2 Stops)

via Year of Film – UNDEREXPOSED: Alternative Photography http://ift.tt/1PY4zot I met Nick while working for a telecommunications company pretty soon after moving to Atlanta. We almost immediately bonded over music, film, art, and photography. In fact a few weeks after our first meeting we ended up staying way too late at a bar discussing Romeo…

Week 12: Stop! Holga Time.

For week twelve I wanted something simple, so I took my Holga out for a spin. There was a partial roll of HP5+ already loaded, which had been in there a while, given the shot of the icy tree that was on there. I’m always super nervous about the exposure coming out well with toy…

week 14, Trees

I didn’t hold out much hope for this film having been stung by Lomo 120 before, but it turned out ok, however the numbers and symbols are clearly visible on the unexposed negative, but don’t appear to have damaged the exposed part. This film was Lady Grey. They were taken with a Mamiya C220 and…

Week 10: Chinatown

For week ten, I did some street shooting around Chinatown in DC. I usually like to shoot things like buildings that don’t move, but I’ve been trying to switch things up a bit and get more people in my shots – although a few buildings did find their way in. These were shot on Delta…

Abandoned Greenhouses and a Noblex

A few weekends ago, me and a few others sort of snuck into a complex of greenhouses.  We really should have just asked the property owners & hoped they’d say OK. I was shooting with a 120mm Noblex, and a Pentax67.  (the pentax shots could be a whole 2nd blog entry). Here’s some of the…

Roll 15-16: Best roll of film this year!

This roll is a “Holy Crap! thats amazing!” roll of film. First, I shot it on my Canon A-1, my first 35mm SLR given to me by my father in 1989.  Usually, we see each other once a year, but he was working close enough to see us once a week for a while and…

Roll 15-15: Other Endeavors

This roll goes back a bit so it must have been in a camera for a while. I build things when I am not taking care of my kids and messing with photography, so I have a shop in front of our house and its a mess.  Here is a picture of my snow covered…

Coolangubra

On the last weekend of September 1989, I answered the call to protect the ancient forests of south east New South Wales from being logged into wood chip. Our protests over that weekend were along a road which was being constructed into the Coolangubra near Myanba Creek. In spite of newspaper advertisements inviting the public…

Week 15 – A little bit of Large success

I am now in possession of a can of cleaning spray for my crown graphic lenses, and my dad cleaned the 135mm lens for me again thoroughly, so I ran some more tests this week.  The shutter still needed to be exercised but in general it wasn’t sticking like it had been before.  I took…

Sweet Dreams

  Week fifteen has produced serendipitous collages of the old and new; double exposures of recent images superimposed on a roll of expired and essentially dead film that was partly exposed a long time ago. In the image above I love how the kids clothes drain off down the lines of the branches of trees I…
