Time and place

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Got myself a new developing tank and developed 6 rolls over the weekend, and found one of the rolls to be from early january. I think it is great to be able to see a picture instantly with a digital camera and even nicer when you can get to see colour negative film developed within an hr of dropping it off, but the I think now the most satisfying is seeing something you shot a few months back, and re-remembering that instance in time and place.

One afternoon, and one roll of portra the park.







A short stroll through ginza

Friday, December 5th, 2008

I recently broke one of my most used lens. The 20mm f1.8. I really enjoyed shooting with this lens, day and night, both digital and film. Very wide and very bright, the only downside was the size. Anyways, I headed to ginza one afternoon to check out some second hand camera stores for alternative lens. Along the way I shot a few frames on the FM2 + 28mm. neopan 400. I’ve found photographing to be good form of stress relief and clearing the mind. Didn’t end up buying anything that afternoon, and still confused to what i should get as a replacement.

Film bug

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

A recent film bug must have been in the water, and it hit me hard last week. I haven’t been touching the FM2 or canonet in the past month, mainly due to the current economic situation, so i was kind of eager to play with those two cameras again. I love the wide angle lens on the FM2.

So i started researching into self developing black and white. After a few helpful mails from friends, and these helpful sites here and here , and this youtube video, and getting all the necessary stuff, it was time to start developing. The process is new to me, and I would compare it cooking for the first time.. Things like the order, measurements, temperature and timing. But after all that washing, and opening up the tank to find negatives, it was definately satisfying. Now i don’t have to wait a few days each time it takes when I drop it off at the lab.

Here are a few from the first roll.
