Kolor by Revolog in Canon at Sugarbush and Surrounding Areas

img774

Kolor is my favorite “fun” film in the 35mm format. I contacted revolog after shooting my initial order of three rolls – and ordered 50 more (major bulk discount) as I just can’t get enough of this stuff. Not sure why… since I have absolutely no control – but after seeing my New York City photos and the ones from the Eurotrip… it’s just a fun all around roll.

Over/Under exposure doesn’t seem to make as much difference as it does with Lomography films. That seems pretty constant through most of the Revolog films except for the two IR type ones (460nm and 600nm).

Some of these particular images were taken with the Aero Ektar and Freestyle Modifier.

Revolog Texture with Canon at Sugarbush

img829

I will be honest. I think this film is kind of an over priced joke. I don’t mean to be insulting… but I guess I just don’t see the creative uses for this film in terms of my own work. Though, I can’t say that I didn’t try. I was sort of hoping that I would fall into an interesting frame… it didn’t happen here, NYC or somewhere in the Eurotrip.

Cinestill – Burlington and Sugarbush

img835

I have had mixed results with the cinestill. Not that it doesn’t do as it should – but that I am not sure where best to use it in order to create images that make jaws drop.

I am not sure if the country was the best place to shoot. But Burlington was fun.

Kolor + Leica + Sugarbush!

Lomo Purple in Burlington, Vermont

img633

The Lomo Purple 200 film reacts differently depending upon how you expose it. If you over expose – it tends to be more blue. If you under expose – it seems to be more yellow. If you nail it – it’s almost black and white with only purple.

After playing around with a few rolls – I felt it was time to see what it could do in the later afternoon / early evening on the streets of Burlington. Quite well, I’d say.

Lomo Cine 200 – Leica M3 + 50mm f/2 – Cooperstown

img691

While in Cooperstown with the Leica M3 50mm/f2 I shot a roll of Cine 200 from Lomography. This was my first time with the film – so I wasn’t sure what sort of subjects I was looking for. Not every shot – even under the best circumstances – can be a winner. But I think that this roll – as a whole – is a winner for really putting the film and the camera through its paces. We also brought Schnapps with us on this trip – so she’s a model throughout.

Lomo Purple in Cooperstown

You may see similar scenes taken over multiple frames – and wonder why they seem so different. You may suspect me of doing significant edits in photoshop… but you would be incorrect. The film reacts differently depending upon how you expose it. If you over expose – it tends to be more blue. If you under expose – it seems to be more yellow.

Lomo Purple Film Test

img599

This was one of the first rolls of Lomo Purple (200iso) film from Lomography. I actually really dig this film and hope they come out with other shades that work similarly… specifically a deep blue…

These photos were taken around my former studio complex, areas in springfield, and a few frames seem to be from a trip to Cooperstown, NY.

The Sardinia in Vermont: Fuji 800

42930005

I enjoy this toy camera given to me by Lomography. I tend to use it on walks with my dog and capturing multiple exposures of local life. My belief has always been that memories are more like multiple exposures than still photos. However, I took this camera on a trip to Vermont – and decided to see what it could do in the field. Not all of the images are in fact multiple exposures.  Sometimes something happens that it makes sense to try and capture it within a single frame. Some of the images are from before Vermont. No rules… and just fun.

The Sardinia around Springfield with Fuji 800

42920004

I enjoy this toy camera given to me by Lomography for walks with my dog and capturing multiple exposures of local life. My belief has always been that memories are more like multiple exposures than still photos. Practicing with this camera – in this way – in and around my neighborhood helps me understand the relationships between the frames. When is two appropriate? When are three? The film is as versatile as it gets while also being easy to process locally. I probably have 100 rolls of this stuff. That and it’s 1600 cousin. I love the grain of that film… and I like the realistic color of this film.
