New Photos – 35mm film

Gareth’s dad gave us his old Olympus camera a while back for us to have a play. This last month I picked up some film and had a play, messing around with some Christmas decorations and light. The first set of experiments took place on Berry Head – up at the old Napoleonic Forts on top of a cliff. We used sparklers and torches, and set up the Diana, the Olympus 35mm, and the Canon Digital.

You can see the Canon photos here, and the Olympus shots here.

I then played around with Christmas decorations and candles, setting things up on the tripod and messing around with long exposures:

    That candle with the starlight filter/long exposure is so abstract. I can’t get enough! I enjoy all your 35mm postings. I need to post more of mine!

  2. I don’t get a lot of time to experiment, but when I do, I love it. I spent hours doing these! That starlight filter is my favourite.
