My Blurb book – Three of 8ight

Today’s image was taken with an old Agfa Isoly plastic roll film camera. The neg was scanned using an Epson V700 then tweaked in Lightroom. Apparently the Agfa is the camera that the cult classic Plastic Diana camera is based on.

Film isn’t dead ll – One of 8ight

A few months back I had a series of 8ight called ‘Film isn’t dead.’
It showcased some cheap film cameras that I had purchased off ebay. They included an Olympus Trip, Camco 35, Agfa Isoly 1, Praktica MTL3 and a Yashica 35 electro.
Well I have finally finished shooting the film, had it processed and scanned the negs and slides.

Today’s image of the Savannah is one that was taken using a fairly basic old 120 Roll film camera, an Agfa Isoly 1.

It has a cheap plastic lens so what do you expect? Although with more practice I’m sure my results will only get better. Not to mention the scanning of the negs on my Epson V700.

Now theres an art in itself, trying to keep curling negs free from dust and fingerprints as they are loaded into the film holder!

Apart from nostalgic reasons I think I prefer shooting in digital Raw then converting to mono in Photoshop using Silver Efex Pro.

Another image taken with my Olympus Trip.

From film to digital via my Epson V700 scanner. A touch of levels and contrast adjustment in CS2 but not before applying a nifty Lightroom preset called ST Vergilbt Gilted.

From the Dark Side

From the Dark Side

Wow, I forgot that I took this picture.
Back in 1982 I think it was, I happened to look up at the full moon, just in time to see an RAF plane from the local base fly across. You can even see the craters.

Okay I lie! Over the years badly stored, something has got to my negatives and left a moon light crater effect over them.
This is what the image looked liked after scanning the neg on my Epson V700 scanner.
