Black & White & Dirty

I got a couple of rolls of rerolled Ilford 200 film from an online store here in Korea. I don’t know if it was the film itself or the development, but all the rolls I shot had these scratches, marks and stains on them.

These were all shot with my canon slr and Ilford 200 film.

Pinhole on the road again

I took my wide angle pinhole Sharan on the road again. I used some Fuji Superia 200 and visited different places in Seoul. I guessed the exposure times and overexposed a number of the shots resulting in some color shifts. The photos that had too much of a color shift to fix I turned into black and white shots as you can see when you  scroll down.

This was probably my favourite photo of the roll. If you look at the path you can see the movement of the various hikers moving from right to left, especially the one person in a purple jacket.

These photos really work much better than the original color version.

The white ghost like figure is a person in a bunny suit. The pinhole is so wide it even captured our shoes.

An old Russian Camera and a autumn weekend in Seoul

I’ve had the Lubitel for about 6 years now and I think I’ve shot a total of 6 rolls through it. That’s a pretty poor average. I just never really got the hang of it. It is missing some small pieces in the back leading to some lightleaks. I tape it up pretty well before shooting with it but even then light still manages to sneak in. But the whole photographic process is so different with a TLR that it still is kinda fun when using it. The exposures come out pretty well even though I don’t have a lightmeter and just guess most of the exposures.

So I threw in some Lomo 100 film in the Lubitel and took it out into Seoul for some photos. Surprisingly the Lomo roll was the cheapest roll of film I was able to find on the website I normally buy my film from. I am pretty sure that is not the normal Lomo pricing strategy.

This statue made this this great recorded chant. It gave me an ephemeral feeling.

I always like the aesthetic from the square framing that a TLR produces. Using a small magnifying glass in the viewfinder makes focussing a lot easier.

3-D Hong Kong

The plastic Nishika visit to Hong Kong. It was hot, it was crowded but it is always worth a visit. We managed to stay in Mong Kok this time and it was nice and close to the markets. Like usual these were all taken with Fuji Superia 200.

This guy was pretty cool. He was setting up his ultralight tripod with a film camera in front of all the different soccer players to take a portrait of himself. I wonder what kinda film he uses. He kinda looks like a Kodak gold kinda guy.

For this particular photo I left the frames in. I just wanted a different look. I feel it kinda works even though it is a bit hectic. As you can see the frama a Nishika creates is not as narrow as the photos you see on this page. Cropping is at fault here.

Tenjin Matsuri in Osaka

I went down to Osaka for their big annual summer festival. I brought along my canon SLR with some Fuji Superia 200 film. I normally use that film for my sprocket rocket because of the colourful lines it has on the sprockets, but I must say it did a pretty good job during those sunny days. This was all during a heat wave where the temperature reached 40 plus (Celsius, you American and Belizeans can figure it out yourself).

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.
