Holga – Roll #1

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.

Holga – Roll #2

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.

Cape Hatteras – Leica M5 – Ektar 100

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.

Portraits – Konica TC – Tri-X 400

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.

Fall 2015 Rolls of Film

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.
