Mixing Fringe Techniques

Filed under: 120 film, lightware — chw @ 21:08

Lately I’m experimenting with two different fringe photographic techniques combined: Shooting pinhole on C41 film, then developing in a special “low color” process. Resulting images are not exactly fine art, but I like what’s happening 🙂

Point-and-Shoot, 1950’s Style

Filed under: 120 film, hardware — chw @ 22:35

My pinhole-modded Agfa Clack got a sister a while ago. Looks pretty much like the first one (so no new hardware photo) except for the lens which remains the original 1-element glass. Quite affordable at 5 Euro, even complete with leather bag this time!

With that baby you can happily snap along at 1/35 second and choose between “far” and “close” as well as between f-stops /11 and /13,5. While not as reduced as pinholing, using this tool still feels archaic and out-of-season. More pictures from the first film over at Silberpixel starting here, one per week through mid-December.
