Cinestill with Leica in Bermuda

72760018

One of my favorite personal challenges are scenes that contain multiple unmovable/controllable light sources each with their own color temperature. The best example – to date – had been Times Square, NYC. The neon, the rgb from the televisions, the led, the tungsten from the streetlights, and everything else. My favorite film to use in that situation is Cinestill. Even though Hamilton, Bermuda is not one of the most urban centers – it was the holiday and had multiple light sources – as you will see. Made for some interesting shots. I think removing the remjet before shooting – caused a lot of the lens flare. I will have to confirm this with other rolls.

Apparently the cinestill also works very well with undergound lights at the crystal caves. Just saying.

The Sardinia in Vermont: Fuji 800

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

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.
