emma's imagination!!!

i had a great night last night, i went to see Emma's Imagination! :D it was a great performance, i really loved it (and we were right at the front as you can see). and her voice is perfect!!!!!!! all the way through the gig, her voice was exactly like it sounds on her album!! and the best part has to be the fact she took her time to see her fans. we all got a picture with her and a nice chat :)
also the suport act were great, quite similar to mumford & sons, but i cant remember the name of them :|

ive also got some film being developed in the lab :) and im quite excited because its my first crossedprocessed film and some quite creative work. it is also my entry for the lomo 10 prophices competition :P i will have them all up on tuesday.

dont forget to visit my Flickr :)

happy weekend

shooting some pinhole!

so last night i decided to use up the last of my slide film in my diana, and stick with the lomo 10 prophecies theme. i have done all kins of double and long exsposures for this theme so i decided to do some pinhole shots.

so i popped off the lens, set the aputure to pinhole and set the shutter release to bulb mode :)
i also set my plastic beauty on top of a bendy tri-pod and slot on the cabel release collar, to keep the shot still.
 i also learnt alittle lighting technique from mijonju by using a normal lamp and hold the light in diffrent possitions for about 30 seconds to a minute to delete any shadows during the exsposure time.
so all that is left to do is to press the cabel release in its lock postion, and exspose for about two minutes with some new learnt lighting skills.
so now ine got to take the film to the lab to Xpro my slides and see what intresting effects we get :) i will post as soon as possible.

made in the USSR

when i was looking round for old things, i came across this:
its an old 1970's Zenit-E SLR :) and from i have read about this camera on the internet it was made in celebration of the olympic games in russia (as the olympic rings show on its body). so i think i will have some fun with this camera, the only problem is that i dont have any 35mm film :| because i dont use 35mm film. so as soon as i have some (i will get black and white film for a vintage feel) i will take this beauty out for some shooting, and what will make it really fun is that i also found a few diffrent len's for this camera ;).
i really cant wait to use this camera :D im sure i will get some really vintage looking shots, even when you look through the sight it looks really retro and you can tell its from a diffrent area. yet another tool to expand my creative work :)

check back soon for when i upload my lomo 10 Prophecies entries :)

on the edge

duck out of water

i dont really think these are my strongist pictures, but i still like them, you can always go over to my Flickr or look at my past blog post's to see more of my pictures.

and on another note, i recived a new camera today from ebay ;) 
i managed to win a bid on a disposable camera, an old "le box" by agfa that expired in 2004!
 so i am quite excited to take out this old expired camera for a spin and the get the film cross-processed for some real quirky colour shift? :)

i have also made my own pinhole camera :O out of a matchbox,
but i think its best to write about that when i have the prints back from the lab.
here what it look likes:
so until the next post (maybe tomorrow?) bye :)
