Roll Of Disaster

Written by • Dec 11th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
After a successful attempt at DIY developing my first roll of 35mm black & white film recently, I took a risk (it is always a risk for a clumsy guy like me) and attempted doing the same for a roll of 120 film. This is one of two test rolls (Rollei Retro 400) I took randomly to test out my GF670. I’ll talk about the camera later on. Notice the white patch on the bottom right of the photo above? Okay … here’s the whole story. Loading the 120 film… >> read more

I Did It! Yeah!

Written by • Nov 24th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Now that the worries are over … I am happy to announce that my first roll of black & white film … developed at home … survived! I couldn’t be happier to see the film strip with images on them! I was dead worried I’ll send the roll (despite being a roll of random test shots) straight into the garbage bin. Woke up a little earlier today … so I have a bit of time to scan some of the photos to see how they turned out … I must… >> read more

Spinning Buddy

Written by • Jun 20th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
I’m back spinning with my spinning buddy (aka my little boss aka Fitzand)! I’m shy by nature (yeah really!) and hate to be in photographs … but the Spinner leaves me no choice but to rope in Fitzand most of the time when I’m using it. This roll took pretty long to finish because I’m always too lazy to lug around the clumsy Spinner but when I do … we sure have lots of fun! Do click on these images for larger versions. There is an ad (on the left)… >> read more

Fisheyed + Redscaled Planes

Written by • May 27th, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Got a little too trigger happy yesterday at the Air Force open house preview and burned a roll of redscale film loaded in my Pentax MZ-30 coupled with the Lensbaby Scout + fisheye optic combo. It was a super darn hot day but somehow the roll still turned out underexposed. Bah! Well at least I know the next time I use redscale on the cam … I’ll probably compensate the exposure by +1 (or is it +2?). I was a little disappointed after scanning the first two shots but then… >> read more

Black Frame : Last Two

Written by • Apr 3rd, 2011 • Category: Fun with film
Finished my first (and only) pack of the Impossible Project’s PX600 UV+ black frame film today. After the first few photos, someone asked if this film still has some sepia tint to them and that made me take a second look at the earlier photos in the day light. Hmm … if my old fuzzyeyeballs are not tricking me … they do actually have a little sepia tint to them. I scanned my earlier photos in black & white mode and thus they look a little different under the daylight.… >> read more

Bring On The Blues!

Written by • Nov 28th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
This is definitely not the first time I’m screwing up a roll of redscale film … just because I forgot to compensate the exposure while shooting. The entire roll looks pretty underexposed and scanning the first few frames got me all down. The photos were like all grainy … lots of weird blue ‘dots’ … and a couple of long blue streaks (scratched?) all over some of them. I thought I might as well send the film strips straight to the garbage bin but some crazy idea came knocking on… >> read more

The Getaway : The Lomo

Written by • Sep 7th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
No getaway is complete without lugging along an analogue cam. The LC-A+ plus a roll of Lomo Xpro 200 slides were my snapshot buddies during last weekend’s visit to the Universal Studios and here are some random cross-processed shots … This is the first time I’m trying this xpro film and I was expecting lots of yellow and green from it. Surprisingly some of the shots turned out with some other colors still ‘intact’. I kinda realise that my LC-A+ now acts a little weird. Exposures are like all over.… >> read more

Split! Spin! Split! Spin!

Written by • Aug 28th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Recently as I was just about to load a of film into my Spinner … I suddenly had this crazy idea to implement the Splitzer’s concept with the Spinner’s kickass long pano. So I took a closer look at the camera and reached for the ever-useful roll of black electrical tape. I thought maybe I could just tape up parts of the slot (see photo below) and then expose the roll … reload it … and then tape up the other parts of the slot to expose the other parts… >> read more

3 F P S

Written by • Aug 19th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
Couldn’t think of an appropriate title … so I used a very lame one. Yeah. 3 FPS. Not 3 frames per second … but 3 frames per scan. Hahaha! I forced myself to scan this roll from my Pen EE2 and since it was already midnight when I started … I took a shortcut and scanned 3 (of the half frame frames … ermm … is that what you call it?) photos into 1. I haven’t figured out if my scanning software can do batch scans and was desperate to… >> read more

Shooting 16 Again

Written by • Jul 24th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
A very rare Saturday without touching a single camera. Yeah … the ultimate sin on a weekend. Spent the day playing with Fitzand and when he was taking his nap … I quickly finish scanning a roll that I shot using my (very precious) Fujifilm Rensha Cardia BYU-N16. After a long break from using it, I somehow kept forgetting to set the correct speed to capture the ‘actions’ and thus some of the shots seem to be pretty ‘static’. I somehow loaded a roll of ISO200 film and then ended… >> read more
