Experimentation with image stacking, 18 September 2022

As I was out anyway, and the weather was a little cloudy, I thought it might be nice to take the Olympus Pen and the standard lens from the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and try a little image stacking , making multiple exposures on a single digital image. 

Experimentation with image stacking, 17 September 2022

It was such a lovely day that I thought it might be nice to take the Olympus Pen and the standard lens from the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and try a little image stacking, making multiple exposures on a single digital image. 

A little experimentation with image stacking, 1 August 2022

As planned over the weekend, on Monday I wanted to take the Olympus Pen mirrorless to the beach and try a little image stacking, making multiple exposures on a single frame. This is possible on the Olympus with the Experimental Lens Kit, which I had bought specifically for this technique. By setting the shutter speedContinue reading “A little experimentation with image stacking, 1 August 2022”

Taking the Lomo LC-A out for a test drive in Águas Boas, 03 July 2022

When the Lomo LC-A arrived it contained what I thought was a part used film. Sadly, when it was developed it turned out that the whole film had been completely exposed to light and it was blank. It was a lovely sunny day, and an opportunity to load the Lomo LC-A with one of theContinue reading “Taking the Lomo LC-A out for a test drive in Águas Boas, 03 July 2022”

Stuck in a car park in Gaia, 20 June 2022

Waiting in a car park in Gaia. There was little else to do apart from bringing  out the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and the full spectrum Lumix DMC-TZ8 for some industrial infrared. 

A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022

Out for a lovely day in Porto with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  After a wet start it was perfect for some #urban and #streetphotography, or just for being a tourist.  #body, #camera, #cameras, #digital, #digitalcamera, #epl1, #mirrorless, #microfourthirds, #olympus, #olympuspen, #shittydigital, #broken, #urban, #Porto, #building, #fisheye, #kit, #lens, #lomography,Continue reading “A day out in Porto, 20 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022

After a test run yesterday it was time to take the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit to Aveiro.  My experiment was short-lived. After four or five nice photos, just enough to whet my appetite, the camera died. Thankfully it was just the battery and I’m all charged up for a possibleContinue reading “Lo-Fi: Taking the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit to Aveiro, 18 June 2022”

Lo-Fi: A test run with the broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit, 17 June 2022

A test run in the woods with the Olympus Pen E-PL1 and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit.  First attempts at in-camera multiple exposures and image stacking (and one failed microclick ‘panorama’).

Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit

Who on earth would buy a broken mirrorless camera? I picked up this Olympus Pen E-PL1 from Kamerastore with broken image stabilization. I wasn’t looking for anything perfect but I recently discovered the Lomography Experimental Lens kit and it looks like it might be an interesting project. I’m thinking freelensing and a possible future conversionContinue reading “Lo-Fi: The broken mirrorless camera and the experimental lens kit”

#OldCameraChallenge: The Lomo LC-A, where it all began

Today my model of the camera that started off the whole Lomography movement arrived, the Lomo LC-A. I hadn’t actually planned to purchase a 35mm camera, as I feel I have enough cameras (from 110 to 120/620) to keep me busy for a good while. However, I recently learned of ‘EBS’ photography, where both sides ofContinue reading “#OldCameraChallenge: The Lomo LC-A, where it all began”

#OldCameraChallenge, the Agfa Preisbox (Part 2)

On a cloudy day I took out the Agfa Preisbox loaded with Lomography Redscale film. The subject for the day was Pole-arity, I felt that the cloudy skies with electricity poles would complement the Redscale film adequately.  The Preisbox was a joy to handle, compared with the stiffness of the Kodak Brownie, and I reckonContinue reading “#OldCameraChallenge, the Agfa Preisbox (Part 2)”

#OldCameraChallenge, at the Feira da Março with the Agfa Click-1

On the first weekend of the Feira da Março in Aveiro, we took the Agfa Click-1 and some Lomography ISO 100 Colour film to the fairground for some multiple exposures and microclick panoramas. #Agfa, #Click-1, #Camera, #classic, #film, #OCC22, #OldCameraChallenge, #old, #photography, #Retro, #vintage, #Lomography,

In Aveiro with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021

Took the Diana F+ to Aveiro. Loaded a roll of Ilford XP2, a black and white film that is processed in C41 chemicals. It was the first time I had ever used it, and I was impressed.  I had some difficulty seeing the frame numbers on the paper backing  and lost the first three frames,Continue reading “In Aveiro with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021”

Aveiro in Colour with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021

The next film loaded into the Diana F + was a roll of Kodak Portra 400 colour film. I found this harder to control than the XP2, and there were fewer successful shots. It was apparent that this is a very light hungry camera, and a few images were muddy and underexposed. CLearly, I have aContinue reading “Aveiro in Colour with the Lomography Diana F+, 13 October 2021”

First outing with the Lomography Diana F+, 8 October 2021

First outing with the Lomography Diana F+, 8 October 2021Ran through my first roll of film in the Diana today. Success was mixed, in some cases exposure was correct,  in others not so much. After the luxury of a digital camera for so long, having to suddenly think about exposure and aperture again was …Continue reading “First outing with the Lomography Diana F+, 8 October 2021”
