Quad Cam: Mimosa Giggles

Posted in 35mm, Action, Film, Photography, Portraiture by daybf on October 21, 2012

Reminiscing girl time with Rebecca. She used to be my closest geographical friend (like 7 min away) but now lives out in Lindsay (3 1/2 hour drive) so we see each other every few months. Back in February Rebecca visited for a weekend and we planned a much needed ladies day out: brunch/mimosas at Kianti’s and The Vow. By the way, was anyone else slightly disappointed by The Vow? Maybe all the pre Valentine’s Day hype put a damper on it.

Quad Cam: Colorful Abstractions

Posted in 35mm, Film, Photography by daybf on October 11, 2012

With cheap plastic film cameras come plenty of mistakes. The four lens camera that I recently posted photos from in Summertime Joy Still Upon Us also created all of these colorful abstract shots. I do recall accidentally triggering the shutter from inside my purse on several occasions…In any case, random mistakes make for interesting images, even if they are of nothing in particular.

Quad Cam: Summertime Joy Still Upon Us

Posted in 35mm, Film, Photography by daybf on October 4, 2012

Summer has come and gone, but here in California October has only given us hotter weather. Here are some fun beach photos to commemorate that happy summer feeling that has drawn out through this Fall.

These photos were taken with my little 35mm quad camera. It has 4 lenses similar to this which takes 4 pictures in 1 second with 1 click of the shutter. So you end up with 4 images on each negative.

Enjoy!Image

Quad Cam: Shannon in action!

I bought a new plastic quad cam at Powell’s Books, since something was wrong with mine. The pics turned out better!

Today I’m featuring Shannon during our Portland trip. Jumping on the hotel bed, hanging out in Chinatown, and making faces on the streetcar:

Four-Lens 35mm Camera, trials [and errors]

Posted in 35mm, Action, Film, Photography by daybf on January 30, 2011

After developing the one damaged negative I posted about back in December, I decided to shoot more with my little plastic 35 mm. The camera has 4 lenses similar to this which takes 4 pictures in 1 second with 1 click of the shutter. So you end up with 4 images on each negative. Unfortunately they all ended up cloudy and underexposed, so I think something is wrong with the camera…

After embracing the low-tech noisiness of the photos and doing some editing, I decided that the rolls are not a complete bust, but at the very least a little fun and different.

These photos were taken with my strobe’s modeling light on full power, and still came out super noisy:

The most successful ones were taken in full sunlight:

Random Damaged 35mm Film

Posted in Film, Photography by daybf on December 23, 2010

I found a mysterious used roll of 35mm film in my room and decided to get it developed to see what was on it. Unfortunately when I picked it up today I found out there was only 1 correctly exposed image on the entire roll. And it was not from any ordinary camera! A few years back Sarah McLean gave me a plastic 35mm camera with 4 lenses similar to this which takes 4 pictures in 1 second with 1 click of the shutter. So you end up with 4 images on each negative. This roll of film was pretty messed up and the one complete set of 4 images was actually stretched across 2 exposures. Low and behold:
