Some Lomo Love

Well, I finally got around to scanning from film this week. I have to say the more i shoot with the Holga the more i love it. The Diana F+ with 35 backer doesn't quite hold up any more. The 35mm shots that i put through the Holga turned out better than those that go through the Diana. Granted i only used black & white film in the Holga but still the images seemed to have a lot more character than the Diana.

Would love to hear any thoughts on some other 35mm films to try out. I am using Kodak Portra 400 VC in the Holga and pretty much love it. I might have to find some 35mm of the Portra if they make it, to try in the Diana.

This last roll of 120 film that i shot spans almost 9 months. I started back in Nov last year when Julie and i found out we were pregnant. Unfortunately, many of the weeks during a winter pregnancy were grey and don't lend well to lomo photographs.

Here are some quick looks at the last nine months.

Had the chance to shoot a couple of friends that were expecting to, Steph and Hart. I need to upload some of the digital that we took as well. Got to playing with some actions and had some fun screwing everything a little.

As you can see the 35mm are a bit grey. But Its really beautiful when you get some snow. Especially in Wilmington NC. Most of the time there is a line drawn across I40 about 25-40 miles north of ILM, and snow never ventures past it.

This year i guess the snow got a little brave.

Horse drawn carriage was out as well to show the beautiful snow covered streets off to those brave enough to jump in for and brave the cold.

Alley entrance downtown Wilmington that caught my eye.

Hart and Steph Wilkie asked Julie and i to take some pictures to remember the pregnancy. We missed the really good morning light downtown. Just got a late start on the day.

Some more scene shots of Downtown Wilmington.

Julie and i went down to the Big Block Art Print Show down in Carolina Beach May 22 to

Flea Market Roosters from Danville, Virginia.

Thanks for stopping in
