Big fun

Experimenting with film cameras as of late – mostly 35mm. I’ve been using a Polaroid 210, Minolta x-700 and the school’s Pentax. Also picked up a bunch of expired bulk film which of course needs a bulk film loader, happily purchased for $5 on eBay. The Minolta (50mm lens) is loaded with Portra 160 NC. It’s a C-41 color negative film which I’m excited to use because any photo lab should be able to develop as oppposed to the obsolete E6 process for slide film that you have to send to KANSAS.  Jeez. Anyway, enough big fun film nerdery. Here’s the list:

Laura, Charlie Parker

Kate, Ben Folds Five

Styrofoam Plates, Death Cab for Cutie

Jambalaya (on the bayou), Hank Williams

Fly Me to the Moon, Frank Sinatra

Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk, Rufus Wainwright

I Know, Kevin Long

  1. I did this 2 years ago.

    I took the body cap off my old 35mm and drilled a hole in it. Then, I took a stamp sized piece of foil and taped it carefully over the hole in the body cap. Then I took a straightpin and put one tiny hole in the foil, then put the cap on the camera and bingo, instant pinhole camera. There are a few pinhole pics on my flickr. You can then take the body cap off and use your regular lens at any time too so you aren’t committed. I mean’t to keep experimenting but some punk bastard stole it from my car.
