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.

Lubitel failed comeback

I tried my lubitel again after a couple of years. My first roll I shot with it was unusable. That was due to using an expired roll of lucky black and white film. This time I put in a fresh roll of Lomo 100 color film. I taped up the Lubitel in order to reduce lightleaks and downloaded a lightmeter app and put it on my phone.

The end results wasn’t great. The light leaks are still there. I need more than just tape and maybe next time I will cover the lubitel  in a roll of aluminium foil. Also the exposure slide is loose and moved down a couple of times leading to very exposed photos which don’t fix up well in post processing. I still have a roll of 120 film left but unsure if I wanna use the lubtiel again.

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.

South of Spain

Photos taken in Southern Spain. They are from Sevilla, Cordoba and Grenada.

I used a Canon 500 SLR with a 1.8 Canon lens and Hema (Dutch branded) 200 film.

I don’t remember why I left in the sprockets when scanning the photos but it looks okay so there it is.

Taken outside of the Mezquita a.k.a. The Mosque–Cathedral of Córdoba. I didn’t shoot film inside only digital. But I should share those photo’s, it was a really impressive place.

Mega Misc. Golden Half

The following are taken with my golden half and its plastic lens. I don’t remember the film which was either Hema film ( Dutch department store branded film) or Fuji Superia. Taken all over the place in Europe. Because the golden half is a half frame camera it is easy to take a lot of photos as you get 72 exposures of a normal roll of 36 frame film.

Golden Half and Dutch Summer days

This is one of the last rolls of film I shot with my Golden Half. I have since replaced this camera with my Olympus Pen EE3 which is a considerable upgrade with its non-plasticky lens and faster lens. I could only use the Golden Half in the summer when the sun is night at bright, but then it did work nicely though. It is also probably the lightest and smallest camera I own.
