Stretching It Again

Written by • Apr 16th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
We will be celebrating the World Pinhole Day this year on the 25th April 2010. Unfortunately I will be away for a week then and thus won’t be able to be shooting pinhole that day. Hmm. Ok … maybe I’ll try to … but it’s hell shooting pinhole on vacation without a tripod and having to let your family wait for you. Hahaha! Anyway, I did a pre-WPD 2010 shoot using my modified Holga WPC that I’ve not been using a for a long long time. This is one fun… >> read more

Not Very Double Doubles

Written by • Apr 6th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Following the previous collaboration with Fabienne (France), she sent me some scans of a roll I sent her some time ago. Unfortunately most of my exposures were a little (or too much) underexposed and so you get to see more scenes from Southern France (Fab … did I get the location right?) instead. I’m working on some rolls for another doubles collaboration with her … this time it will be a little crazy because I’m gonna try out some new ‘tricks’ that I’m not sure if will work. 😀… >> read more

Pinhole Pizza?

Written by • Mar 20th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Some time ago … I was ‘stuck’ with some piggies (US$ credits) in the Lomography store and had to decide on ‘killing’ them on something a couple of days before they expired. There wasn’t any camera I was eyeing and I’ve enough film in my fridge to last me a while. So I browsed around and came across these pinhole cameras called ‘Pinhole Blender’. Huh? What a name! They look like some cool metal cans that you can shove a roll of film (they come in 35mm and 120 variations)… >> read more

Cooking The Instant Way

Written by • Mar 14th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
To be very honest … I was supposed to cook dinner today. Wifey went for facial and the maid was on leave. So while Fitzand was taking a nap, I went to the kitchen … and decided to cook up something different. I ended up not cooking dinner but still I spent lots of time in the kitchen doing these … While sipping coffee in the kitchen and thinking what to cook for dinner, I was suddenly inspired to take some photos using the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator (MPO) and… >> read more

Fireworks : NY Eve 2010

Written by • Jan 1st, 2010 • Category: Digital stuffs
I thought the first blog entry for this new year has gotta be this! I am trying to post this as soon as possible and then grab some sleep before waking up about 5 hours later to catch the first sunrise of the year. Half an hour ago, I was standing at my window with my Canon SX1is mounted on the tripod trying to catch some shots of the fireworks. I was too darn lazy to use my DSLR and furthermore I’ve sold off all my tele lenses and I… >> read more

Festive Doubles

Written by • Nov 22nd, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Lomography contacted me recently … asking if I could so a ‘tipster’ thingie for their festive newsletter. Well … originally I agreed to perhaps do something like a ’36 frames’ tipster entry but gave up after a while. I just couldn’t find time to really shoot 36 themes. So I had to work on another idea and one evening while sitting in front of my computer munching chips … I thought of this. I’ll maybe post more about how I did these (though it probably ain’t hard to figure it… >> read more

Instant Multi Pinhole

Written by • Jun 28th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
Ever since the few pretty successful rolls on the Diana Multi Pinhole camera, I’ve always wondered how it will be when paired with the Diana Instant Back. I’ve always wasted quite some film when using the Instant Back, so now coupling it with the pinhole camera is of course (to me) a much higher risk … but a risk I’ve to take to find out if I’ll end up with lots of under/over exposed shots meant to fly straight to the garbage bin. Loaded a pack of Instax Mini film… >> read more

Diana MPO

Written by • Jun 22nd, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
The Lomography’s Diana Multi Pinhole Operator is a pinhole camera that allows a selection of 1, 2 or 3 pinholes to create some rather interesting/cool/bizarre photos. Those clever guys topped it with a set of colored ‘filters’ (6 of them to be exact) to let you paint your pinhole photos with crazy wild colours. Sounds like just another over-priced crappy toy from Lomography … some might say. Being a sucker for their Diana F+ camera, I took the plunge and got me one of these rather weird pinhole camera to… >> read more
