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


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


DigitaLIZA : First Look

Written by • Jul 15th, 2010 • Category: Others
Finally a solution for those of us who like scanning photos which has the sprocket holes areas exposed! The DigitaLIZA from Lomography. The solution came just in time … as the new fun Spinner 360 churns out super long frames with exposed sprocket holes that make scanning and stitching the frames a really painful process (especially for people like me who has not much patience sitting in front of the computer doing post processing). I was expecting a delay in the shipment of mine because Lomo Asia’s online store stated… >> read more


Swirly In The Soup

After being notified about my Lensbaby aperture disc design being one of the runner ups, I was contacted by Picture-Soup.com for a short interview regarding it. For those wondering how those custom discs which made it in the list (and the awesome winning one) looks like, do check out the article because they did publish images of the discs as well. Check out the article here. That’s all for this entry. 😀 Gotta go get some sleep because I’ll be travelling up to Malaysia early in the morning … with… >> read more


F3 And FE2

Written by • Jul 3rd, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
It has been weeks since the personal warranty period given to me by the guy who sold me the minty F3 is over and I’ve just (finally) finished the test roll on it. Things got a bit slow (the test roll) and I had to take a risk and hoped that the camera works fine … and it was quite a good thing to see that at least the metering still works great. This test roll is a long expired Mitsubishi 200 film which I pretty like and I remember… >> read more


Redscaling In Disney

Written by • May 20th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
I somehow suspect the metering on my LC-A+ is a little crazy now … after the couple of rolls screwed up during my doubles exchange with Fabienne from France. That was because I underexposed my rolls and they ended up darker than they should be and almost all my exposures were not visible. I forgot about that matter when I loaded a roll of redscale film into my LC-A+ during my Tokyo trip recently. Gosh. I was a little worried when I remembered that I didn’t do any compensation (of… >> read more


LC-A+ In Japan (Roll 2)

Written by • May 13th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
After scanning the roll of Sensia last week, I just couldn’t find enough time to get the images outta the 2nd roll. This second roll is another roll of randoms but this time … using Fujichrome MS 100/1000. It has become one of my favourite film for cross processing and I simply love the different colors it produces under different lighting. Some of these were taken indoors at the mall near the hotel in Disney … and look how steady my hand was! Hahaha! Yeah … I didn’t touch beer… >> read more


Holga + T400CN : Tokyo

Written by • May 5th, 2010 • Category: Fun with film
I remember having to pour out the contents of my camera bag for the airport security guy (Narita Airport) and showed him my cams and chargers etc. He then put them all in 2 trays to re-scan them. He later came back to me and handed back my stuffs and held up my Holga … and said ‘Camera!’. I was wondering if he was asking me if that ugly plastic is a camera or was he telling me it is a cool camera. Hmm. Nevermind. I threw in the Holga… >> read more


Welcome Home 120

Written by • Dec 25th, 2009 • Category: Fun with film
After a long absence from shooting 120 film, this roll of Agfa Portrait 160 loaded into my Holga was supposed to be a ‘welcome’ back for me into the world of medium format. I’ll be shooting much more using 120 film come 2010. What was supposed to be a few rolls of images shot in Malaysia few weeks back … ended up only half a roll was completed. These first few were taken when were we in Kuala Lumpur … This one below is my favourite from the roll. Nevermind… >> read more
