Stuff I saw at Lumsdale and Stanage edge

On Saturday I did some fmp preparation by using two toy cameras in the winter sunlight around the peak district. Much underexposure in the shadows, even with pushing the film two stops. Have to look into long exposures with the holga, maybe rig up a shutter release.

Stuff I saw Camping

For me, camping involves a philosophy of doing little as possible, enjoying the outdoors, sleeping in hammocks, having breakfast from the hammock, talking about how warm or cold you slept in the night, drinking coffee hourly through the day, looking for the ‘tumblr photos’ with the camera ready, and more importantly enjoying the company of friends. This camp hit all the marks with extras like watching a meteor shower and having Hayley enjoy hammock camping for the first time.

Images taken with xpro1, with a 14mm fuji lens and a Jupiter 8. I prefer the j8 images, they have charm. Its easy to tell the lenses apart, the j8 has classic sonnar bokeh and a narrow focal length.

Stuff I saw with a Holga

Despite having no kitchen and limited bathroom, with bits of plaster hanging for dear life on the walls, I managed to develop some film this weekend.

This roll of hp5 is from the trusty holga. I had the holga laying in my bag for sometime, so I genuinely didn’t know what was on the roll of film. Places range from Lincolnshire to Nottinghamshire. It’s sorta like a practice for holga week.

Stuff I saw around Lincoln in June part 2 (Shooting ferrania film, again)

I use to shoot ferrania film quite a bit when it was still readily available in, of all places, the pound shop. ‘Solaris 200’ use to sit along side ‘agfa vista 200’, while gainer than the latter it was better for colours with deep blues that ‘popped’ out. It was, at one time, my favourite colour film, even coming with me on trips.

Keeping this short, this new film is the black and white p30, they have recently produced and sold. It was delayed a little, much to the annoyance of many. I got 5, and gave 3 away to friends. Share the wealth.

Here are a few snapshots using the film. First thoughts are that it isn’t as forgiving as most films, lot of blown highlights. Using a yellow filter the contrast is high. Its a distinctive look.

The film was developed in rodinal APH 09 1 + 50 for 8 minutes. One minute agitation at start then 1 per minute thereafter.
