I have just taken 2 rolls of film!!!! One black and white medium format (120mm) film in my Holga and one 35mm colour in my Diana. This might not be much to most people but to me this is amazing as I don’t really take photos any more, I like to see what I do as ‘Creating Images’. Hopefully I can develop them tomorrow and at least get contact sheets made so I can see what I have got and if they are any good and share them on here! These images I have just taken are experiments for my new project about Voyeurism and Surveillance. Ideally I would love to take the images with a Polaroid camera (like this or this ) as I think that the photographs they produce, both in quality and feel would fit right in with my project but for the moment I have taken photos with 120mm and 35mm just to see what effects I can get from these before, perhaps, purchasing *another* camera!
I wasn’t going to post anything on my blog until tomorrow BUT I’m just too excited not to write about my new purchase. Today I bought a Cannon EOS 3000 35mm film camera with a fish eye lens attachment along with a normal lens. I have not been able to use it yet as I haven’t got batteries for it yet but I’m definitely going to get some tomorrow so I can have a play round with it.
I am needing to think about camera storage now as I own a Holga Twin Lens Reflex 120mm (medium format film)camera, a Olympus OM40 35mm SLR camera, a Voigtlander Twin Lens Reflex 120mm box camera, a Fujifilm DL-270 Zoom (point and shoot type of 35mm, currently broken :/), a Kumagin, SuperHeadz Super Fat Lens (toy) 35mm film camera, a cheap Kodak Easy Share C913 (digital) and my Pentax k2000 digital slr camera. I hate the idea of having them in bags (unless I am taking them to use somewhere) and would like to be able to see them so I can pick which one I want. I’m the kind of person that if they are in bags and out of the way I will forget about them and they won’t get used much. plus they are all so pretty to look at! But, I don’t want them getting dirty or knocked about or anything so I’m thinking about investing in a display cabinet with glass doors that I can keep them in, along with a box to keep all my films in and batteries….I think that this will solve my “issues” about camera storage. Keep an eye out for photos of my cameras soon!
