Week 45: Street furniture

This week I went out with the Holga loaded with a roll of Fuji Pro400h.  I was short on time and had less then 30mins to take some photos, get some lunch and head back to the office. Thus I though I would challenge my self to get 12 hopefully interesting images not only in…

Week 44: Getting a Sandwich

So for this week I shot a roll of Kodak Portra 400 BW in the Holga.  That’s right Portra but in Black & White a relatively rare discontinued film.  I shot this during a lunchtime walk from the office to get a sandwich, I thought I would document what I saw on the way, they…

Week 42: Foggy

So for this update I was finally back out with the Holga.  I had been neglecting this camera for a while, partly because I needed a change and partly due to dull grey winter weather making it a little less suitable. Anyway I had this camera with me as the day before was the work…

52 Rolls Week 48:52

Today we start with a stroll just off the Mall and make our way back to Pearl Street.  Above, Lucille’s Restaurant, with a typical gathering of waiting customers.  Purports to be ‘authentic’, but having lived in New Orleans it would take a lot to impress me.  Besides, I’ve had the Beignets, and if you want…

Week 35: Alpha, Beta, Delta

This week was pretty rainy and dull so I figured I would try a high ISO film in the Holga, namely Ilford Delta 3200.  I also used a red filter, but as per a previous post I don’t think the plastic one makes much difference. I headed to Somerset House in London where they had…

Week 33:Slide in the City

Week 31 & Week 32 got skipped, for a few reasons.  But last week to make the most of the last days of summer, I thought I would try some more slide film namely Provia 100f. The results are not quite as good as last time, I guess because the light was not quite as…

Week 22 (yeah, I know) – Denmark. Holga Meg Diana+

My family is very varied.  Some folk never venture far from home.  Others decide that they’re going to get as far away from it as possible.  I was talking to perhaps the most wayward member of my family in my Grandma’s flat one afternoon when I said “Well, next time you’re in Europe, give me…

Week 30: A+ for concept, E- for Attainment

So this week I shot a roll of Lomography Redscale. I thought long and hard about what to shoot then it came to me.  I have a Lego astronaut figure so I thought it would be cool to photograph him at London locations but with the redscale it might look like it he was visiting…

Week 29: Gotta have Coffee

This week I shot a roll of Fuji Pro400h in the Holga.  It was a particularly bright day so 400iso was a bit to strong.  It was already loaded from a few days before so I didn’t really have a choice. I decided to try a theme this week and the theme was Coffee.  I…

Week 21: The Holga and Naked Tim

Hmm, where to start with this one?  Well, I’ll try from the beginning and keep it brief.  At some point nearly two years ago, I was browsing through Twitter and Tim Andrews (who happens to have Parkinsons and was well into his Over the Hill project at the time) had posted something interesting from another…

Week 28: Composition, Composition, Composition

As mentioned in my last post I shot 3 rolls in the Holga for Holga week.  This post is in relation to the second roll which was Kodak Ektar 100.  A film I like and have also seen great results when others have used it. For Holga week I was keen to shoot as many…

Week 27 : Slide Film

I have been away so there has been no update for a couple of weeks however I shot three rolls for Holga week in July and these will be shared starting today with a roll Fuji Provia 100f and the other two in the next two updates I am going to let the images do…
