TK Roll 2015-19: The Longest Roll (Canon Prima Tele at Half Frame, Kodak Ektar 100)

Half frame is why I take photos. About two years ago, I happened upon an article describing the “new trend” of using toy cameras, and taking pictures the analog way. 1,157 more words

Exhibit 123

Another underexposed shot. Never printed – like about 80% of the film I shot in the 80s and 90s. Part of the reason for this was to do with negative film and non digital cameras – in a roll of 36 exposures you only ever expected to get one, perhaps two good shots, the rest were more of an insurance policy.

Exhibit 105

This was taken around 1984 in a rented house in London. It’s one of three shots I took and as usual, because it was negative film, I had no idea if any of them would work. 93 more words

Hong Kong Analogue Camera Trail - The Photocrafters

Like a lot of these places, this one was on an upper level of a very seedy looking building. When I walked up the entrance stairs to the lift, I was greeted by some stern looking HK Police Officers arguing with the door person – who seemed to be pushing back pretty assertively… Something had been going on, but as long as I couldn’t see any body bags or “police line” tape anywhere, I was going on up! 343 more words

Exhibit 1

This photo shows the effects of damage to the emulsion of a negative called reticulation. It’s entirely accidental but in this instance is curiously effective – the fault suiting the subject matter and making it unearthly and strange.

[album] more water drops




These are some more experiments with water drops on negative film.

The setup was lit with a single flash (and a self-made color gel). For the correct timing i used a self-built light barrier made from a laserpointer and photodiode for triggering the flash and my trusty Olympus OM-4-Ti in bulb mode.
