Friday Film Shots.

Ugh I am struggling with the Lightroom-smugmug interface today, so have taken a break to shoot some polaroids, just around the house, back to the struggle after :/.

My herby garden is coming along nicely, I nearly killed the coriander but rescued it just in time,

My mums plant is firing up some very red shoots, another back from the dead plant πŸ™‚

and I replaced the chrysanthemums from the other week with some gorgeous pink lily’s, must shoot them in colour πŸ™‚

and finally, now for some ‘proper’ Friday film shots to come. I really like shooting film, and I’ve been dicking about with a holga and the lubitel, but the lubitel is not flexible enough for me, it only goes up to 1/500 shutter speed and the focusing screen is dire, especially for someone who needs varyfocals. So here is a proper jobby.

I’ve already started practicing, and am using a light meter to (hopefully) get the settings right, but it’s going to be a steep learning curve. Β The history of the camera is quite fascinating and I’ll probably do a Fraggle Report about it at some point over on Across The UniverseΒ . Β Anyways, back to the struggle..

    (I did wonder about that Lubitel…)
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Nice job on the coriander save! I am looking forward to figuring out what Mother Nature killed off this winter over the next few weeks (she finishes the job I start most of the time).

    Lovely compositions, fragglerocking, they seem to be made with time and care. The photos I see on Flickr with the Rolleiflex are astounding, I know in your hands it will shine and sing. : )
