Still Water

I liked this image as a monochrome, but it won’t work for my portfolio. A long exposure from Okains By.

Holga Images

I spent some time yesterday attempting to print the images from my Holga using an enlarger, unfortunately my developer is a bit past it and I didn’t get very far. In the end I scanned the negatives instead using my camera, which seems to have worked fine, at least for my purposes.

Film and Flies

A busy week preparing images for the Kaiapoi Art Expo which I hope to take part in, also busy on this weeks diploma work – using a real film camera. Actually I have been using two, a Holga with 120 film and my old Nikon F80 35mm camera. They are both loaded with B&W film and I have been taking a few images at New Brighton and on my way to work. The Holga is fun with extremely limited options, it had Ilford HP5 film 400 ASA and of course pretty much fixed shutter speed and aperture. I was using a tripod at New Brighton and tried the ‘bulb’ mode holding the shutter open on counting elephants. I also tried lots of multiple exposure shots, including about 75 exposures on the same image.

I have spent the evening generating the images of the wedding a shot a couple of weeks ago – all done now – and developing the film form the Holga. It looks like I might have something interesting but I will know more when I try to print using an enlarger.

In the meantime here is a shot from last week’s homework, we had to take an ‘interesting’ shot of a fly. Not very inspired I went for there is a fly in  my soup. Not pretty!
