When 2.5 hours of exposure still aren’t enough

Filed under: 120 film, lightware — chw @ 21:51

Earlier this summer we spent a few days cycling along the eastern German Baltic Sea coast. One night on the beach, with nothing more than the stars above us, I used the pinhole-modded Agfa Clack for some long-time exposures of up to 2.5 hours. This turned out to still be way too short though; here’s a first contact scan, heavily adjusted to at least show some structure; on the light table there’s hardly anything to see on the negative at all. – Well, let’s pretend those dust specks I didn’t care to retouch are the stars 🙂
