Here are a few more shots from “The Brick.” I don’t have a light meter so most of the shots are done instinctively. Sun up = speed up.
There’s a certain magic in film grain that is absent from digital photography. Sniff too much of it and you get hooked.
This is from my 4th roll of film. I still made the mistake of shooting with the lens cap attached. I still attempted to shoot an ASA 100 film with an approximate 1/100 sec. shutter speed in the shade with disastrous results. The last shots from the roll are still amazing and I finally had one with the Holga “Light Streak.” I used an expired Fujifilm YKL for this series.
Busy. Rainy. I didn’t have time to go out on the streets and shoot.
Among the things I did for this Holga madness is a shot list and exposure chart on a piece of index card. This acts as a guide and is necessary to minimize film wastage. A 36 shot roll of film can provide 20 to 24 exposures with spacing in between images. My next experiment would be to achieve slightly overlapping images soon. I hate to do the math yet.
Let me leave you with this garden shot. This shot is blurred an terribly exposed. But that’s what a Holga can do to you.
