Roll 21: Brownie Hawkeye

I wasn’t going to repeat a camera during the 52 weeks, but last week I found that my compact Brownie Hawkeye was easy to carry in my purse while out running errands. My week started with the summer West Coast tour of the Impossible Project Airstream showing up at Blue Moon Camera in N Portland.…

roll 20_ aqua, my favorite color

I found this little gem at Urban Outfitters for $1.99. It was marked down from $48 and it was my favorite color so I had to have it. I didn’t have a 35mm Holga so thought it might be fun to give it a try.   You know how when you buy a new car…

Roll 16 -return to the roll back

A few rolls ago I talked about my adventures with a 120 roll back for my Zero 45 pinhole camera. I ran a roll of color through it for roll 16 and shot most of it at the Chinese Garden in Portland, Oregon. I really am liking these results much more than the black  and…

Roll 18_ World Wide Pinhole Day

I chose my newly purchased Vermeer Anamorphic pinhole camera for World Wide Pinhole day. I used Ilford Delta 100, exposed for between 20 and 32 seconds, and resulted in 4 photos. My husband and I went to the Pittock Mansion in Portland to make some architectural images which seem to work best with this type…

Roll 16 with a Canon AE1

My Canon AE1 is my go-to street camera. It’s easy to carry, makes a decent photo and gets a little attention. As you know, from past posts, I like to wander the streets near home. One day last week, when it wasn’t raining, I opted for a walk in NW and inner SW Portland. I return…

Roll 10: Sprocket Rocket in SE Portland

My roll 9 hasn’t been developed yet so I am jumping ahead to week 10 spent running a roll of Kodak 400 through Lomography’s Sprocket Rocket camera. It’s an inexpensive way to delve into some panoramic photography spending less than $90 for the camera. Like most plastic cameras, it has a crummy plastic lens so…

Sellwood Bridge, Portland, Being Rebuilt

Week 9: Portland by Pinhole on Expired Efke 100

This week’s images were shot on some expired film (July 2010, so relatively fresh compared to most of the film in my refrigerator) from a company called Fotokemika based in Croatia. My early success with my first pinhole images gave me an inflated sense of confidence — a confidence my friends who shoot pinhole assured…
