Holga: roll 4, part 1, Shaina and Taylor visit

Posted in Film, Holga, Photography by daybf on January 31, 2011

Shaina and Taylor visited on the weekend of the 15th and they couldn’t have chosen a better weekend! Talk about perfect weather and clear skies. So, we strolled West Cliff Drive, and then I drove them around the east side and Pleasure Point.

Of course I brought my Holga along! Did a little mash up of some of the shots:

More Holga experiments. Double exposure of my boyfriend Joe, and just some nice beach scenes at Blacks Beach/14th Ave.

Holga: roll 3, part 1

My good friend Yelena, who is a fellow Cal Poly Art & Design grad, came to Santa Cruz for an Expendables show at the Catalyst and then stayed for the day on that Saturday. The day was open-ended and accidentally turned into quite the hipster date. First we browsed MetaVinyl and discussed our purchases at The Caffe Pergolesi over Santa Cruz Ale Works hefeweizen. So, naturally, I brought my Holga along to document the outing, which ended with watching the sunset on the cliffs overlooking Seabright beach.

In case it isn’t obvious from the photos, Yelena is an extremely talented designer and all-around artist. Definitely check out her design portfolio and blog.

Lesson: Holga + sunset = not much.
Notice my sad attempt at bulb mode on the far right-better exposure, but I moved :/

Sporadically shooting with my Holga makes me feel like a novice photographer again.

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:
