I was out for a walk, so I took the Vivitar for some intentional camera movement and regular photography.

Some ‘proper’ snapshots with the Glitchy 1€ camera, 19 March 2023
As well as deliberately trying to move the camera during exposure I tried to take some ‘real’ photos too. It’s not easy to remember to hold the pose until the second beep.
Intentional Camera Movement with the Glitchy 1€ camera, 19 March 2023
Since learning about glitch art, it’s something I have really wanted to try. The snag is that most glitch art involves partial destruction or modification of answerable, which I am reluctant to try. Partly because I’m not very good at soldering and, for the Gameboy especially, I really don’t have the nerve to destroy myContinue reading “Intentional Camera Movement with the Glitchy 1€ camera, 19 March 2023”
First outing with Lomochrome Turquoise and the Holga 120N, 15 March 2023
About six months ago, in October 2022, I discovered the existence of Holga Week. I was really impressed with the images that artists were getting with this cheap toy camera and really wanted to participate. The only snag was, I didn’t have a Holga. I started searching on OLX, a popular classified ad site inContinue reading “First outing with Lomochrome Turquoise and the Holga 120N, 15 March 2023”
Testing an old 6MP digital camera I picked up for 3€, 14 March 2023
The CEX website is an excellent resource for cheap digicams from the dawn of the 21st century and occasionally they have some real bargains so I always keep an eye out. Last week they were advertising a ‘generic 6MP camera’ for 3€. I like these particularly as you are never sure what you are goingContinue reading “Testing an old 6MP digital camera I picked up for 3€, 14 March 2023”

It’s #flyday Friday, 13 January 2023
For the first #FlyDay Friday of the year here’s a fly that we spotted sunning itself. Hope everyone has a great day. #fliesarebeautiful
Everyday abstracts, 02 January 2023
Some random abstracts and close-up images with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 floppy disk camera.
New Year’s Eve panorama with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 31 December 2022
As I was passing the window I glanced out and stopped in awe. In front of me the clouds were letting through the sun’s rays and it was spectacular. So my last post this year is a three frame panorama taken with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 floppy disk camera and stitched together with the smartphoneContinue reading “New Year’s Eve panorama with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 31 December 2022”
Cloudscapes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 27 December 2023
Late in the afternoon the sun briefly broke through a cloudy sky.
Three Cameras from 2022: My favourite experiences this year
With the encouragement of Stephen Dowling of Kosmo Photo, a group of camera bloggers were asked to write about three cameras they discovered in 2022 and what each one meant to them. Well, I thought, why should they have all the fun? So I came up with the three cameras that I most enjoyed usingContinue reading “Three Cameras from 2022: My favourite experiences this year”
It’s #flyday Friday, 23 December 2022
It was #FlyDay last Friday, and although I meant to post then there wasn’t quite the time. This particular fly was buzzing around the kitchen and I used the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 for these super low resolution images. #fliesarebeautiful
Low resolution #CloseUp, 23 December 2022
Took the Sony Mavica MVC-FD51 out on the patio and tried some close-ups in ‘macro’ mode for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge
Street photography in Oiã, 23 December 2022
Out in Oiã with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 for the #ShittyCamaraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge. Just some random images around the town of Christmas decorations and the ubiquitous abandoned structures.
Some not so #ShittyDigital infrared trichromes, 18 December 2022
I’ve been making trichromes for the #1990sCameraChallenge using early digital cameras like the 1998 Sony Mavica MVC-FD81 and the 2000 Sony DSC-F505V. These have been fascinating to do, of course, but the quality has been a little … lacking. So this time I wanted to use a better quality camera to see if the qualityContinue reading “Some not so #ShittyDigital infrared trichromes, 18 December 2022”
Infrared trichromes with the Sony DSC-F505V, 10 December 2022
Some trichromes for the #MillenniumCameraChallenge using the Sony DSC-F505V. I created a normal trichrome with red, green and blue filters then made a digital aerochrome with an infrared filter, a red filter and a green filter for the red, green and blue layers, respectively. I also made an infrared trichrome using a infrared, green andContinue reading “Infrared trichromes with the Sony DSC-F505V, 10 December 2022”
Some #ShittyDigital appreciation of the noble telegraph pole with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 17 December 2022
Out with the Sony for the #ShittyCameraChallenge #1990sCameraChallenge today.
Some ‘Instagram’ snaps from the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 11 December 2022
Not much time to take the Sony Mavica out today as I was tasked with making the lunch. Still, there’s no harm in using a 20th century camera for 21st century social media, right?
Infrared trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 10 December 2022
A little while ago I was trying to make some trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. At the time I also took an infrared image using the 720nm Infrared filter, but I thought that the image was so poor that it could never be used for a trichrome. However, some sage advice from a masterContinue reading “Infrared trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81, 10 December 2022”
More dull trichromes of the roundabout outside our house, 09 December 2022
After the fun yesterday with the Sony Cybershot DSC-P73, I thought it might be nice to try some #ShittyDigital trichromes of the roundabout with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. It was another very dull day, but one day, I know, I’ll get a lovely trichrome blue sky.
