Camera used: Holga. Film: fp4 and hp5.
I have been really busy with my FMP and dissertation however last week on the 6th I visited the Peaks. I took some images for my fmp at Wyoming brook with a camera I built, and then used a Diana 4×4 in the Burbage Valley
Olympus Mju ii // Kodak trix at 1600, hc110 1:47 dilution for 16mins at 20c. Grain, grain, grain – “Photographers seem to need periodically to resist their own knowingness and to remystify what they do” Sontag, on photography pg 126.
Five locations in one day.
Arbor Low Stone Circle
Burbage valley (north)
Leica m2/ v.c 35 2.5. Kodak tri-x rated at el 1600.
Shot with a xpro1 and a industar69 with a modified fujifilm black and white red profile.
Holga images taken on hp5.
Today we hiked a circle of surprise view, owler tor, higger tor, carl wark to padley gorge and back. Despite nearing Christmas time, and the water logged paths, it was like a spring day.
I took the below with my tiny rangefinder, Olympus 35RC + yellow filter with hp5 rated at 1600, trying to train myself to meter at 1600 without a meter. The Oly 35Rc is just as sharp as the MjuII, but with complete control and no batteries if you don’t use the meter. I am also in the process of editing some 6 x 17 pinhole images from the walk.
