At last I have some recent images from my beloved rolleiflex to share.
These were all taken this summer in Sidmouth, Devon and various locations in France.
I didn’t make any adjustments to the images apart from the odd minor crop or straightening of a wonky horizon as I wanted to show them as they are (although some of them would work really well in black and white) This constitutes two rolls of film (you get 12 to a roll), so I was pleased I got so many images I liked considering focusing was pretty hard (the focusing screen is very dark on my camera), and framing can also be quite tricky. I was also guessing a lot with exposure as my light meter is broken.
For those who are interested I used Fuji Reala which is a print colour film (C-41) 100 ASA. It was out of date which probably accounts for the graininess and the slightly antique colour cast they have. For some I used a tripod but most were handheld.
Alex and I were lucky enough to spend a few days chilling on the beach in Cancun, Mexico back in January. I put some of my iphone images (mostly instagram or vintage camera filters used here) into some colourful collages using picasa. I like the bold visual effect. Makes me want to be back on the white sandy beach enjoying that intense turquoise Caribbean sea with a margarita in hand…. ahhhhh….. 🙂
