You realize what’s enjoyable? Images. You realize what I like about pictures? Sharing it. Sharing prints, drinks or talks, or no matter else you would possibly need to share. And talking of sharing, I’m relatively blissful to share this small experiment, on EMULSIVE nonetheless, which could very nicely be the most effective place to share film-related stuff on these worldwide webs of ours.
Additionally, with out @emulsive, these photos wouldn’t have ever been shot.
Let’s leap again in time, we could? A number of years again (2018), I entered my first version of EMULSIVE Secret Santa. And it was superior. Final 12 months’s associate kindly took me up on my “a shot roll of movie to swap” want record merchandise, and listed here are a couple of of the outcomes 🙂
The roll of 35mm Fuji Professional 400H (now a collector’s merchandise, proper?) was shot first by Tom Brouns whereas strolling his canine over in Albany, California, after which by yours actually 5,800 miles / 9,300 km away in Lyon, France.
Trying again on this festive experiment, I want I had thought of marking the primary body on the movie to keep away from the slight misalignment between the exposures. It really works on some pictures, however most would have been higher off with out it.
Techwise, Tom used a Nikon F100, and I used my trusty Voigtlander Bessa R2 (with the Coloration-Skopar 35mm f/2.5 I consider). No SLR vs rangefinder battle right here simply two basic cameras working hand in hand to create photos.
Tom uncovered the roll as regular, at field velocity, and I adopted alongside taking good care of capturing the roll pushed 1 cease at EI 800. It was developed as regular by Gris Souris, an area lab of Lyon, France.
There’s not a lot technical issue to swapping movie on reflection, and our extremely improvised experiment turned out good! Simply bear in mind to mark the primary body utilizing a sharpie or related, outlining the sting of the body whereas loading the movie for the subsequent shooter to have the ability to align their first body accordingly, and do not forget that the movie shall be uncovered (not less than) twice. So to keep away from overexposure, you would possibly need to alter your metering to compensate for this (even when coloration adverse movie can greater than take it). Assume 1 or 2 stops much less mild than the specified velocity for each extra publicity.
Total, this was a extremely enjoyable little recreation. I had been eager about making an attempt movie swap for ages however by no means took the leap. I’m actually blissful Tom performed alongside! Right here’s to sharing 🍻!
