Sometime last June my husband and I watched the latest episode of the show Ghost Adventures (please don’t judge me – it’s one of my favorite guilty pleasures). It just so happened that the crew was visiting a site an hour south of us, The Enchanted Forest. So we decided to go visit the next day. And I brought cameras. Of course I brought my pinhole camera. But today I wanted to share the photos I took with my Olympus OM1 and Ferrania P30.
I love this film for the subject matter. The place is every bit as creepy as Ghost Adventures made it look on television, and I wanted to capture that on film.
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:
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.
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:
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.
