Shaina skipping stones

8/365: Shaina came and spent the day with me yesterday and she’s never been to my house before. So, we had endless cups of tea, and I took her to the river nearby where I learned she’s a pro at skipping rocks!

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:
