Week #07 – Fujicolor Pro 160NS

February is coming to a close and hopefully winter will go away with it. Can’t be soon enough.

I feel like I didn’t do this film justice. I know it’s color can look so much better. Maybe I really should invest in ColorPerfect.

But that’s the game – when shooting only one roll, you’ll only get so far. Especially with the only 12 exposures medium format rolls.

Week #06 – Fujicolor C 200

Fujifilm Fujicolor C 200
Fujifilm Fujicolor C 200

This time there will be a change in presentation. Instead of just putting up a gallery of photos I’ll try to visualize a song. Since there are a lot of lines in the song, there will be more photos, than usual.

I endlessly listened to it, printed out the lyrics and had them with me while shooting.

For the full experience please start the youtube video and listen to it, while looking at the photos – thanks!

The Cinematic Orchestra
To Build a Home

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills…
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust.
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home…

Cause, I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust…

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it’s knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me…

Cause, I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust…

Week #05 – Kodak T-Max 400

Kodak T-Max 400 (120 roll film)

I originally planned to show some slide film today, but the film came back way underexposed. Not really sure what happened there yet, I guess I’ll just shoot another roll and really pay attention to metering.

I love the super-fine grain of T-Max and can’t wait to use it again, but this time at another time of year. The almost always gray days of winter can’t be over soon enough.

Week #04 – Kodak Ektar 100

Kodak Ektar 100 (120 roll film)

It’s cold. It’s getting dark. The tripod is heavy. Your gloved hands clumsily turn the focus wheel. You missed sunset, but that’s no reason to turn back. You shoot your film. The lab swallows it for days. Finally you get it back. The smell of coffee and the purring sound of the scanner are in the air. You transform trapped light into ones and zeros. You push it onto the stage. And there, in the merciless spotlight, are this weeks images.
