Wandering around Osaka

These are photos I took in Osaka while I was there for the big summer festival. It was very hot, so I tried to spend as much time possible indoors to escape the deadly heat.

My Konica failure

800

My Konica slide film failure. I think I got this roll of film from a lady of whom I bought a spinner 360 from. I don’t exactly remember. So first of all the film was probably pretty expired, never properly stored cold and for some reason I decided slide was the best choice to shoot lots of night shots without a tripod. Yeah, that’s not exactly a recipe for success. You didn’t stand a chance you pool roll of Centuria film. Enough with the chit chat bring on the photos.

You can see the heavy purple haze that I had to remove. This photo wasn’t actually as badly underexposed as my other night shots. I’ve seen this type of heavy purple tinting with expired film before and especially when cross processing. But in this case I developed them as slidefilm and holding it in my hand and looking at them with a light source they don’t look as bad as my scans.

You can really see what the underexposure does to the shadows. Trying to save the shot in Photoshop really brings out some ugly blotches. I think I could have made it a bit better with some type of noise removal program, but at this point I don’t feel like putting more effort into these images. I just have to learn my lesson and take better ones the next time.

The daytime photos turned out a bit better, but the heavy purple cast was still present and removing it left the colors a bit muddy.

The following photos I took in Silmido. I still haven’t seen the movie thought I heard good things about it. We looked online to figure out exactly when the tide is low and you cross to the island. There were quite a few people camping on its neighbour island Muuido.

It was quite foggy and moody. Too bad my photos don’t really reflect that.

I asked a friend her opinion about Silmido and she had the following to say:

a) silmido is sad

B)i didnt watch the movie (boohoo)

Kyoto, Osaka and Nara in sprockets

This summer I took a trip to Japan. I visited Kyoto, Nara and went to the Tenjin Matsuri (major summer festival) in Osaka. One of the cameras I brought along was my sprocket rocket. The cheap small flash I use it with didn’t fire a couple of times so some images were very underexposed. I used a roll of Fuji Superia 200 (which always have the colourful lines between the sprockets) and a roll of expired Fuji NPH 400 professional film.

Here are the photos taken with the 2 different rolls of film. The first batch were taken in the ancient city of Kyoto.

I then took a train and went to Nara for a daytrip. I was crazy hot. Just my luck I was in Japan during a heatstroke. It got up to 38 in Kyoto.

Amsterdam–Seoul Double Exposure

I had a 10 hours layover in Amsterdam on my way to Seoul and took the chance for some double exposures. I made sure to take all my photos in landscape orientation and underexposed by 1 stop. My Canon EOS SLR 500 auto rolls the film and always puts it at the end of the roll so the frames always match up, this is not always in the case in other cameras. I tried to combine high contrast images with local text and landmarks.

Paris in Sprockets

It’s nice when you’ve visited a city so often you don’t even know how many times you have been there. It is without a doubt my favourite city in Europe. This time I took my Sprocket Rocket and some superia film along.

Louvre at night and in the winter. When I take exposures at night, its normally about 4 seconds. Negative film is pretty forgiving.

A long exposure of the merry-go-round at the bottom of Sacra-Coeur in Montmartre.  This was also in the movie Amelie ( I know the title is longer, but I don’t feel like typing it, even though now, it would have been shorter to just type it).

done17

Graffiti of Belleville, I always try to seek out new neighbourhoods when I visit Paris and this time it was Belleville and its street art.

belleville

I also made a lenscap out of cardboard so I can take multiple exposures by covering half the lens. I will write a blogpost once covering exactly what and how I did that. but this is the result of that experiment. And below another example.

done12

I’ve got 3 more shots from the same roll but not in Paris. The following were taken in Eindhoven during Carnival in the Netherlands. This is mostly celebrated in the south of the country due to its Catholic history. It’s not really the same though as its south American cousin, but something fun in its own way.

Partying with Sprockets

Return of the sprocket rocket loaded with some bright Fuji Superia film. It was Halloween in Guayaquil, Ecuador so what else to do? Go online, find a party on couchsurfing, throw on some freshly purchased wigs, bring along local rum and party on.
