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”

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.

A rather dull trichrome of the roundabout outside our house, 08 December 2022

I sourced some Sony Memory Sticks to go with the Sony DSC-F505V. The seller was actually selling a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73, a 4MP camera from 2004, but was including the Sticks as a part of the package. Personally, I consider that I paid 10€ for the memory sticks and received a free camera. It arrivedContinue reading “A rather dull trichrome of the roundabout outside our house, 08 December 2022”

Today I’ve been making some (really) #shittytrichrome, 03 December 2022

Today I thought I would try some digital trichromes with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD81. To make trichromes I set the camera to black and white and took three photographs, using the red, green and blue Lomography filters. The images were processed with GIMP photo editor using each image as a layer for red, green andContinue reading “Today I’ve been making some (really) #shittytrichrome, 03 December 2022”

Today I’ve been experimenting with #trichrome, 26 November 2022

I’ve had some red, green and blue filters knocking around for ages, but never got around to using them. Today I thought I would try some digital trichromes with the Nikon Coolpix 990, a 3MP digital camera from the year 2000. First of all I set the camera to the ‘Rec M’ setting which rememberedContinue reading “Today I’ve been experimenting with #trichrome, 26 November 2022”

A little experimentation with image stacking, 10 November 2022

It was a lovely day, and perfect weather to take out the ‘broken’ Olympus Pen mirrorless camera and the Lomography Experimental Lens Kit and try a little image stacking.  Since I had last been out I bought a variable neutral density filter and made an adaptor to fit this to the front of the standardContinue reading “A little experimentation with image stacking, 10 November 2022”

Out with a shitty 8MP digital camera I picked up for 5€, 6 November 2022

After getting the little #shittydigital 2MP Vivitar camera from CEX for 1€ I came across another ‘generic’ digital camera on the website. I didn’t actually know what I would be getting, but I thought that for 5€ it’s worth taking the chance and it turned out it was a Fujifilm Finepix A800 from 2007. It’sContinue reading “Out with a shitty 8MP digital camera I picked up for 5€, 6 November 2022”

Lo-Fi: First experiences with #PolaroidWeek, 27 October 2022

I have never taken part in Polaroid week before, but after my experiment with #theHandle I figured, why not? The Week originally started in 2006 as a celebration of Polaroid film and runs twice a year, in October and April, but has since evolved into recognising all kinds of instant film, not just Polaroid, whichContinue reading “Lo-Fi: First experiences with #PolaroidWeek, 27 October 2022”

Out with the 1€ #shittydigital camera, 26 October 2022

It’s #PolaroidWeek and I had one piece of Instax Monochrome loaded into my Polaroid 600. It seemed like a waste to go out and take just one photograph, so I thought I would take the little #shittydigital 2MP Vivitar camera I had picked up from CEX for 1€. The Vivitar 3695 is as simple asContinue reading “Out with the 1€ #shittydigital camera, 26 October 2022”

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.
