Pinholeday: Shots taken with a lens

Photography, Travel and Other Adventures

Apologies for not posting for so long! I am not sure what is going on with me lately but I am feeling a need to scale back, and I guess blogging was one of those things for awhile.

I don’t want to devote a lot of time to this subject at the moment, I’m sure I’ll write a blog post about it in the near future.

I realized that I still have a lot of images from my trip to Norwich in April that I have yet to share, so I will continue on with that!

Here are some more photos from Pinhole Day. These were all shot with my trusty little Olympus XA with Ferrania P30 film and Kodak Tri-x film.

The Ferrania shots:

Bleak

This might be a good opportunity to talk about this film and what I think about it.

I shot this roll in really dark, rainy conditions. I was really worried about how the images would come out because of this. But I think the contrasty nature of the film worked really well with the kind of weather we were having that day.

Yo!

For the most part, I really like the film.

I just finished a roll of P30 that I shot through my Olympus OM on a bright sunny day and am really curious to see how that roll fared under those conditions.

And now the Tri-x shots:

Amour

I am really digging the graininess of the images I got from the roll of Tri-x.

The images out of the camera were much flatter than the P30 shots and I had to do a little bit of level adjusting in Photoshop to get them to look the way I wanted.

More photos to come very soon!

Pinholeday, Part 2

Photography, Travel and Other Adventures

Here are a few pinhole photos taken on Pinhole Day with a Terrapin Ace, 3d printed by Todd Schlemmer. I acquired the Ace the evening before at a gift swap. I have enjoyed using it ever since!

Ektar 100 was used for all of these shots.

Pinholeday Part 1

Travel and Other Adventures

Pinholeday was a rainy ramble through the city of Norwich. It was a little cold but we didn’t let that stop us! Rain is a pinhole photographer’s friend. This day will be broken up into 3 different posts entirely based on the cameras I used. Today I will feature the Reality So Subtle 6×6 pinhole camera.

The day started at Norwich Castle and meandered along the River Wensum.

Norwich Cathedral

Travel and Other Adventures

The day after our tour through the Norfolk coast, we visited Norwich Cathedral. Norwich Cathedral was completely, mind-blowingly amazing. It is 900 years old. Let that sink in for a moment. 900. years. old. It made me think of the book Pillars Of The Earth and I wonder if this cathedral is what the author had in mind when he wrote the book. It’s truly an amazing work of architectural art.

We had special permission to have tripods in cathedral so I shot a few pinhole photos. For whatever reason, my Olympus XA didn’t make it out of my bag that day.

Here are a few pinhole and iPhone shots.

St Margaret’s of Cley

One of our stops in Norfolk was a really cool Anglican church: St Margaret’s, Cley. It’s located in Cley Next The Sea. Here are a few photos from my iphone, pinhole camera, and 35mmcc (more geeky film photography details at the end of the post).
