Painting the city with flowers

Flowery Apartments

One of my favourite things about using film for photography is the joy of double exposures. I took these photos with my Nikon F55 which is a film SLR that you can pick up for next to nothing. It uses all the lenses that my D300 does so I get all the joy of film with all the modern technology that comes with digital. I used slide film and got it cross-processed at Photographique.

For these photos I shot the whole roll of film around the city of Bristol where I live. I then rewound the film and put it through my camera again, photographing flowers and leaves and other naturey stuff. It’s pretty simple to do, there’s a tool for hooking the end of the film out of the canister once it’s wound back in or you can take it to your local photographic developing shop and they should be kind enough to do it for you.

20110809-SS (3)

This week I thought I’d share with you one of the more ‘novelty’ type of cameras that we have. The SuperSampler takes four photos over two seconds to create a 4 frames within one photograph. You can also change the settings so it takes all the photos in 0.2 seconds but I never use that setting as the results aren’t so interesting. The camera has a fixed shutterspeed so you can only use it in good light. I used Fuji Sensia 200 film in it for these photos and had it cross-processed.

You get different effects if you move the camera as it’s taking the photos,

compared with keeping the camera still.

Mostly this camera is great for being silly with!





Lomo LC-A

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

The LC-A cameras are by far the best of the Lomography range. This is the LC-A, you can also get an LC-A+, LC-M and LC-Wide (of which Daz has at least one of each!)

The best results are when you use slide film and get it cross processed in normal colour film chemicals. The results are great colours and contrast. The film I used in these photos is Kodak Ektachrome and developed at Photographique.

Here are some of the photos I took last week when we went for a wander around the harbour.
