2017, Roll 5 -Too Much Kissing

One of the downsides to posting individual rolls to the 52 Rolls blog is that pictures will be posted up out of context. If you’re the type of photographer that gathers pictures  into collections over many years, the shots on a roll will often be quite eclectic and not make a lot of sense when…

Week 52 – Carl Zeiss Jena Flextogon 35mm f2.4

Just before Christmas I picked up a  Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 in M42 mount which I had heard very good reports about. I have a few old M42 mount cameras and decided to test it with my trusty Praktica MTL 5B and some expired Kodak Colorplus. It was a pretty cold day but clear skies…

Week 42 – Sunny Autumn to Winter in 1 Week ….

  I have been making the most of the lovely sunshine we have been having recently … the weather here in Wales has been a bit nuts, lovely sunshine one day, torrential rain the next and then last weekend we had the 1st smattering of Hail/Snow up on the mountains. These two images were shot…

Roll 11-14/52 Japan part 6

Rush! Stop! Rush! Stop! This has been almost the last month to date and it almost feels like the eye of the storm is the calm before the inevitable, in saying that, next week is moving house time. Until then is a small period of pause, and where the time is found to continue to…

[raulpc] week 39

This week I took out the 6006 with some long expired Ektar… love to go into the city, Lisbon here, and come with a surprise in the box, maybe an empty surprise… well, from the 12, 4 came in with something to look at… a surprise into every frame, I guess it was the light…

Week 38: The Beach

I have been a bit busy lately so have lost a bit of traction with this blog post.  So time to get back on track.  One of the reasons I am behind is I was lucky enough to have a trip to Florida. It was for an event but I took my camera with me…

Week 37: Analogue on Analogue

This week I shot a roll of expired Kodak Porta 800 in the Yashica Mat 124 G.  Being indoors I used a tripod. I wanted to try and recreate the shots I had seen when people photograph their record collection. it was an interesting experiment as firstly the meter in the Mat 124 only goes…

[raulpc] week 37 – more pinhole 6×17

Another experiment with light and mood, trying to figure out exposure for an inside picture, with the me as a ghost showing up as intended but not quiet as I wanted. The only one with something to see on this roll. With and old TriX developed in PMK.    

Week 39: Push Off

The 52 Rolls Project has led me to shoot (a lot) more film which has been mostly good, but not always. There have been several weeks where I’ve resorted to snapshots, just to tick off the week, and 39 was one of those. Similar weeks have occasionally produced the odd photograph that I’ve been pleased…
