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.
This was my first time combining two cities. For more double exposures, click here and here.
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.
Long exposure on the sprocket. I normally expose for about 8 seconds. Negative film is pretty forgiving, so a couple of seconds more or less doesn’t make a major difference.
Playing around with some double exposures. Easy to do with the Sprocket Rocket.
The famous Kinderdijk outside of Rotterdam. Nice place to see windmills. Easily accessible with the waterbus and a bike.
Because the Olympus Pen EE3 is a half frame it gets you 72 photo’s on a roll of 36 film. So this update will contain quite a few photo’s from berlin.
We took two walking tours something we normally don’t do, but because of the massive amount of history in this city we were glad we did. We visited Sachsenhausen which was a model concentration camp. That is where they figured out the most efficient ways to organize the logistics of setting up the concentration camps during world war 2.
A walking tour of downtown Berlin itself was also packed full of information about the Berlin Wall era down to standing on a parking lot where underneath the bunker where Hitler killed himself was. Hmm that’s a badly written sentence.
Major memorial in Berlin dedicated to the jews that were killed in WW2.
Entrance of the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.
Remaining parts of the Berlin Wall
Bullet holes left intact from WW2.
One of the most famous pieces of art on the remaining standing part of the wall. This was a famous kiss between the then ruler of East Germany and the USSR.
After a couple of years I gave the old Sharan pinhole camera a try again. This time it went okay. I timed the exposure times to about 7 seconds, counting in my head and considering they were mostly cloudy days ( what else to expect in the Netherlands?). The edge of the framing is weird because I added a whole bunch of black tape to prevent light leaks ( see here for that disaster). But I think I may have went overboard with it. I’ve cleaned up the tape now. I also thought it would be interesting to show the sprockets. I feel it gives the image a bit more body, otherwise they are a bit skinny.
And as I have mentioned before, don’t forget to edit your photo’s.
