We had a great time shooting with Deena, David and their kids. It was a beautiful warm fall day and the photos show it.
I was given a Holga as a gift last year. It took me a while to finish this roll. There are a couple nice shots out of the twelve I shot. I used an Ilford 400 B&W for this roll. I had a bunch of light leaks and double exposures. I learned to keep the lens cap on and come up with a better system to remember if I cranked to the next exposure or not after taking a photograph.
This roll was shot on a holga on Ilford HP5 Black and White Negative 400 iso Film (120 Roll Film). This was my second roll on this camera. I shot the rolls back to back so I didn’t get to learn from the mistakes of my first roll. Overall, the results have a great feel, though the focus was not too great on many of the shots. The double exposure shot came out pretty interesting though I didn’t mean to make one.
This is my second roll of Ektar 100. This was a great roll of film for shooting summer time in Michigan. Some of the lake scenes are my favorite from this roll. The pastel like colors really play well with the warm summer days.
After a friend showed my his shots on Ektar 100 film I ran out and bough two rolls. This was the first roll that I shot on the film. It was on my trip to Cape Hatters and shot on a Leica M5. I really like the look & feel of this film it had great color but not over saturated.
I was a bit disappointed with this roll of Tri-X 400. There were only a hand full of images that I liked and most were poorly exposed.
I got to shoot this roll on a Konica Autoreflex TC with Tri-X 400 iso film. All of the shots were on a 50mm 1.7 lens and I focused on shooting portraits. I was pretty happy with the feel of the images and how the camera was to use. It has a great shutter release sound too. The Konica is much easier to focus than the Leica which was very welcomed.
I finally had three rolls of film developed. I shot two rolls on a Yashica camera, that I borrowed from Kate (thanks Kate!). One of the rolls came out great; the other, not so much.
This camera took 120 film which is a larger film than the traditional 35mm film size. The camera also shoots a native 1:1 or square photo. The hardest thing was composing with the camera as adjusting the frame was backward on one axis while normal on another. I have some work to do.
The third roll of film had been shot on the Leica with Tri-X 400 35mm film. These shots are the 2:3 ratio images.
We got to meet baby Maggie this weekend. She is one cute baby. Here are a couple of shots from our visit.
We had a great time meeting Quillber this weekend. He is the cutest (and only) hedgehog I have ever met. Quil hung out with us for a while licking some watermelon and cruising around the house.
