Week 48 Cemetery-centric

This week I shot a roll of film that I souped months ago and then forgot about. I also completed a full roll of double exposures which I shot on the Nikon N65. Both were shot at cemeteries (by now you’re all beginning to wonder about me….).  Let’s start with the souped film. I’ve got…

A Roll of Mistakes

The story of this roll of film is a litany of mistakes. I thought I should try some black and white in the EOS3 only having shot colour with it. I had an unexpired roll of Ilford Delta 400 in the fridge so that was my choice (everything else is expired which introduces an additional…

Week 49 continued – GoatBand

Week 49 was another during which I shot more than one roll of film. I posted about the first here – the second was a roll of Kodak TMax, shot through my Canon EOS5. I’d been reading about ephem’s EOS3 and remembered that my friend Iain, who also uses an EOS3, used a multi-exposure mode that…

Week 41 Double exposure. Double exposure.

Inspired by the work of several photographer I follow on Instagram and/or are associated with on other social media sites, I decided to try my hand at a whole roll of double exposures in color. I decided to use another precious roll of Fuji Velvia because the colors are so saturated, I thought it would…

Week 42: Victorialand

On Friday night I went along to the opening of the Inside the Outside group’s exhibition at the Photo Parlour in Nottingham. One of their founder members is Al Brydon, a photographer that I’d met a few years ago, who produces tremendous landscape work from the Peak District. As part of the ITO exhibition, he was…

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…

Week 52: UConn, seeing double

My brother was in town visiting from California, so we decided to go to the University of Connecticut, my alma mater, and bring along our cameras.  He with a Leica M6 TTL and I brought along my Leitz-Minolta CL.  It had been at least 10 or 15 years since he walked around the campus, and…

roll 49 – film swap with my se-elf.

Roll 49 Is a film swap with myself. I had half a roll of pinhole sitting in my closet. The roll was from a “wardrobe malfunction” of the pinholga I meant to send around the world. So when I received the new camera for the Great Transatlantic Pinhole Filmswap I decided to use that roll…

Roll 39 – seeing double

For roll 39 I decided to dust off the Holga and take it out on an adventure. Inge had just started a Double Exposure group on Facebook and asked me to help her be administrator. She’d posted some of her own Holga shots so I was inspired. I shot most of these on Portland. I…

Week 44: Seeing Double

I found a roll with some lettering on it that kind of looked like I had shot it already, but the leader was sticking out.  So I thought, what the heck, let’s double expose this bad-boy and see what happens.  I frankly can’t remember what camera I used on the first go-around, but the second…

Roll 38: Bolsey Model C

  A new camera for the project:   The Bolsey Model C.   This is a nice little TLR that runs 35mm and is from the 1950s.   The camera is a little special because an extended family member gave to me because he knows of my love for all things film.   The camera…

Roll 30 – WPPD film swap with Alex

Why hello there! I seem to be in a blogging funk lately. I just don’t have any words in me lately so I’ve been having a hard time motivating myself to write blog posts. Once again, I have been encouraged to keep on keeping on, so here I am. Luckily, this post was originally on…
