Behind the fence

Previous / Next

Found an old wideangle lens on an old videocamera the other day. It fits nicely to my Holga. The lens on Holgas are not threaded, but I managed to screw it on. The plastic is pretty soft. Was no problem at all. I guessed the lens would be wide, but this was almost too much. It`s not easy to see on this photograph, but I guess it must be close to a 24mm or even wider (compared to regular 35mm cameras that is).

I photographed a one year old boy today. We turned our livingroom upside-down again, with lights and backdrop, the parents, the kid, me, and Jeanette trying to coordinate, and keep things going smooth. I think it went pretty well, but we haven`t seen the pictures yet... I`ll post at least one, no matter what.
One thing I learnt today was Jeanettes comment when we were done. I forget to tell people that she helps me. That I can`t do pretty much more than shoot, and that she`s the one who has to adjust light, follow the kids movements with the reflector, and do "the lot". Not the parents. When they interrupt too much, we loose the flow...
I`ll have to work on that.
You see: we are one hell of a team!

Holga 120s
Agfa apx400

Being a team is good: is much more fun shooting with somebody else. Now... what is the swirling mass behind the fence???
It`s a tree :) Whith a bucket hanging on one of the branches...
being a team rocks ... duke and i shoot together on the band shoots i have been doing lately (err we have been doing) ... the interplay between the two of us is so wonderful for getting the shot - i love that we work so well together and it just makes it so much more fun :)

this is a cool holga shot ... neat use of lens!
