Spent a few hours photographing Arild
the other day. I`ve got a few more pix to post in a couple of days.
It`s getting darker, and I notice it. I`ve been dead tired lately, and it`s about time to dig out the vitamines. Hopefully I`ll stay awake long enough to publish this po
Here`s the first frame from the first roll that went through the new Holga. The camera is very similar to the medium format Holga when it comes to build quality, optics, and ease of use. All plastic, a pice of crap - and I love it already.
It took a while to get used to the shutter. It`s located on top
of the camera instead of on the right hand side of the lens.
Framing is an issue when it comes to close focusing. I got fooled a few times - the subject I focused on didn`t show up dead center on the negative, but up and to the right. I should have known that. Forgot that the lens and the viewfinder "see" differently...
The film is 135mm, and that means you get a normal negative instead of Holga 120`s square.
Even though it looks (and are) cheap, I didn`t notice any lightleaks.
Unfortunately, I used Ilford Delta 400 film in it. The film is great, but it doesn`t scan well on my scanner. I`ve noticed it before. It might be because of over-developing the film. It looks pretty contrasty and "hard".
The camera might be a new favourite. I`ll just modify it a little...Holga 135bcIlfor Delta 400

Earlier this summer, Jeanette came home from work and said I`d better get my camera and go to a field near our house. A car was on fire - I might grab a shot before the firefighters left.
Two kids had been having fun, driving in circles, but the exhaust system got a little too hot, and suddenly they were in big trouble.
They stood there, whatching while the fire fighters worked.
I noticed a photojournalist from a local newspaper came too. He shot a few frames. Then he left.
As he drove away we heard a roaring sound, and practically out of the blue came six helicopters.
I think they added nicely to the photograph.
The two boys couldn`t care less.Nikon D-70s
Here`s one from Legoland, Denmark.

And the things they`re a-cha-a-anging. I`m drowning in new photographs- I shoot a lot more than I used to, and spend less time in front of the computer. That`s good!It`s not like I`m all energy and creativity- it`s more like shooting more, and I`m also a lot more happy with the results. Made my first home-made pinhole camera a few weeks ago, and I`ll post one photo from that one roll...
I`ve even ordered a new camera: The Holga 135bc!!!!!!!!!
Todays photo is from Egypt.
