Time for the Yearly Post

Actually my yearly post is about six months late, oh well.

I’ve been bitten by the film bug again.

I have been trying to get some scans somewhere that I could show them off easily. I’m not a stupid person. I did manage to get some photos uploaded to Facebook, but what if some of the people I want to share the photos with don’t have a Facebook account. So how about Pinterest or Instagram, thinking about it the photos would probably not be any easier to find there unless you already have friended, linked or whatever the hell it is you do on those services.

Moot point anyway, Instagram only wants you to put up photo’s taken from your phone and Pinterest only wants you to share other peoples stuff.

That’s when I remembered I have a website, even if I never actually post anything. So now I’m going to post something.

These are photo’s I’ve taken in Centennial Park over the last couple of weeks. Early Saturday and Sunday mornings. All but a few of the black and whites were taken with my Iskra the fuzzy ones were taken with the Holga my sister got me for Christmas several years ago (thanks Amy). The black and whites were all shot on Tri X and developed in Rodinal at 1:100 dilution and stand developed for one hour. The color photos were all taken with the Iskra and Ektar 100. These were developed in Kodak Flexicolor chemicals at room temperature with extended development times. I also skipped the bleach step. Bypassing the bleach step made for some interesting negatives. The ones that had plenty of exposure turned out great the ones I took earlier when the sun was not as bright appear really grainy and flat. I think I’ll go ahead and use the bleach step next time, I can always play around with the colors in Lightroom.

The Wanderlust Travelwide came in today. I’ve got my film holders loaded and I’m just waiting for the sun to be bright enough to take some shots. F/295 is a tiny aperture, after the reciprocity failure is taken into account shooting the Travelwide pinhole is going to take a lot of light.
