Archive for Polaroid & Film
So I have been scanning in some old ass film :) There are some rolls here that go back to at least 2003. These shots were shot using (i think) the Nikon FG 35mm sometime around the olympics but I am sure these were shot on Fuji 1600 that was pushed a stop to 3200 (hence the awesome grain) Yes this is a shot of a toliet. It’s a thing that I tend to do. :)
I recently bought a shiny new Wide Pinhole Holga from the ever lovely Nicole over at Beau Photo. It’s basically a Holga with a pinhole lens that takes either 6x9cm or 6x12cm photos. It’s awesome!
The photo below was taken with this camera. It’s acutally the first roll i have run though the camera! It is about 15 or so separate exposures all shot overlapping and double exposed all on this one roll of film. There is no photoshop trickery here just multiple overlapping pinhole exposures!
I am totally done with this day (last client left at 8pm) so here you are some shots from that first ever roll out of the Yashica C that I bought at the camera show in burnaby.
My building is awesome. If you haven’t heard me rave about our Amenities building before you will now. We have an awesome user run art building that contains pottery/wood/metal/print making/music studios as well a awesome darkroom that I help run. one of the things that we have acquired for the darkroom is the every lovely Epson V750 Film scanner.
This is a reasonably cost effective film scanner that will scan Negatives up to 8X10 and at way better quality then I could have imagined from a flatbed. I haven’t until recently had the opportunity to play with this magnificent beast until recently but I am super impressed with speed and quality!
I took this opportunity to develop a bunch of random rolls of film that I have had laying about (Truthfully I have a large box of undeveloped film some dating back to 2001) and I feel I should share.
This is from a trip to Tofino in 2009 (where we recorded the Tofino sessions)
Lately I find myself doing a lot more music wise then I do photo wise (not to say that I am going to become a jerk with a camera /guitar/banjo/microphone or anything anytime soon) In addition to playing in our increasingly inaccurately described folk rock duo My Friend Lisa (there are four of us now) I have found my self playing with Mikala on a fairly regular basis. I have also been working on a raunchy punk rock side project with my other awesome friend Jenna (whom you may remember from this video) called “The Stank“ All that & I have been recording a few demos for other people! All in all it has been rather busy on the music front these past months.
All the while I have been tring to live up to the camera part of my jerk with a camera name though, as such this is a polaroid from Wednesday of my friend Mikala manhandling Chester!
We were working on some new material but its not quite ready for the masses yet so I will leave you with a cover of the worlds best band EVAH!!!
So right before the crazy of Culture Crawl we headed out to the west coast for some scouting and what not. Here are some Redscale images from Ucluelet
My favourite is this last one.
