Harsh Winter Light

Winter in Seoul has some really nice low strong sun light when the sun is out. I found a couple of spots in Myeondong where the light was interesting and I all I had to do was wait.

Hongdae Halloween 2015: Female Edition

lostaruban halloween nishika (13)

 

During last Halloween I hit the streets of Hongdae with a friend and we took photos of the wonderfully dressed up people there. I used my Nishika N8000 ( the older and heavier brother of the N9000). It is a heavier camera but so far more dependable and I prefer the forward lever compared to the forward spool of the N9000. I threw on a small lomo flash and I hit the streets.

Lady above had probably my favorite costumer with the Liechtenstein homage, but it was the last frame of the roll and I must have opened the camera at one point, getting a major light leak.

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.

Weekend in Gunsan.

A couple of months ago we went for a weekend trip to Gunsan. Interesting small town. I liked the area near the water the best.

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)
