Here is something a little different: A non-pinhole photo! I recently bought an Olympus OM1 and it has become my favorite SLR. I will write a blog post about it soon, but for now here is a quick photo I took last month up at Mt. Tabor in Portland.
Geeky photo bits:
Camera: Olympus OM1
Lens: Standard 50mm lens that comes with these cameras
Film: Adox Silvermax 100
Develop: Adonal stand developed
Only with pinhole photography can you get these fantastic swirly colorful sunbeams. I love them so very very much. Someday, if I am lucky, I may even burn a black dot right in the middle of the sun. Someday.
Camera: Zero 2000
Exposure: 3 minutes.
It is a tree branch of some sort. I just don’t remember what I was taking a photo of. This was from my excursion two weekends ago at the Japanese Gardens with my Holga and a roll of black and white film. The back of my camera fell off right at the beginning of the roll so I wasn’t sure if anything would turn out. I did get a few good shots. I got a few weird shots. This is one of the weird ones. I like it though.
This was my first attempt at scanning medium format film on my scanner. It was kind of clunky. There was dust everywhere. The photos are all crooked and you can see the edges of the film. Some of them are reversed because I didn’t scan with the proper side down. I need more practice.
