Weekend Shots

I had a busy weekend, and it was wonderful. I went to a country fair in the middle of nowhere with some friends, visited Wayne State University’s gorgeous campus, went to the Memorial Day parade in Dexter, and visited my Grandpa. I took my Holga 120 TIM with me on my escapades.

The TIM has the ability to make multiple exposures and split the frame in two. You can make your own stereographs with it because of this feature. You can make as many exposures as you want as well, like the crowd one was three different exposures.

Yeah, I just goofed around with this camera all weekend. I am actually a little emotional over the picture I got of my grandpa, because he is so stoic and I got him without him noticing. You know, the whole “acting for the camera thing?” It’s not a factor in this picture. Roland Barthes is all emotional of the photograph of his mother as a child, and I am emotional over this photograph of my grandpa.

So, yeah. I took pictures of things this weekend. I have a schedule of interesting photo shoots coming up, and I am really looking forward to it. I’m longing for constructed images like nobody’s business.

That’s all for now. Happy Shooting!

 

Regent’s Flower

I may be back in the United States, but my film keeps on coming in.

Thursday, my second to last day in the wonderful city of London, started out bright and early with my friend Sarah. We did a photo shoot in Regent’s Park, mostly in Queen Mary’s Rose Garden. I used Lomochrome Purple XR film in my Twin Holga camera, then re-shot it in my Minolta after rolling it back up. The results are stunning.

The middle photo in the bottom row was printed wrong in the lab, but it still looks cool so whatever.

I’ve been curious to see what happens when you double expose Lomochrome Purple film, and hey, I am not disappointed in the least. I look forward to shooting more doubles on this film.

If you’re planning on shooting Lomochrome Purple- totally get some vegetation in your shots. It’s work it, I promise.

Side note: I got an email from my professor regarding my photography class this fall- it’s all analog and other processes, and holy cow it’s less than two weeks away and I am so excited!

Happy Shooting!

P.S.- Is anyone going to London? Can I sneak a ride in your suitcase?
