Hold on

 

 

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know by now that one of the greatest challenges with this blog is having enough material to have a regular and somewhat steady ‘production’. Being an amateur photographer with other occupations and responsibilities as well, I am simply not able to blog as much as I want to. At this moment there a few Portra 400 medium format rolls to be developed, but that will take a few weeks I am afraid. Until that moment, or other photo opportunities, I take the freedom to dig up an old picture taken with an Iphone 4S. I think I have used the Hipstamatic app, but I am not sure. I like the lines and contrast of the picture, I hope you like it too and will hold on to Pixandthoughts! 🙂PixAndThoughts

Wet Plate

I truly love wet plate photography. Very labour intensive, but the results are amazing, stunning and magical. Having said that I don’t aspire to actually do wet plate photography myself. I requires patience, time and dedication I simply don’t have. So, the picture you see here is shot with the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone. The results are surely not on par with the real thing, but sometimes quite pleasing like this one. This piece of art ‘Squares with two circles’ is made by Barbara Hepworth in ’63-’64. The shape of this piece  and the contrast of color and shapes inspired me to use the wet plate preset. If you are interested in real wet plate photography, make sure to check out the excellent work of this photographer.Kroller Muller

Change

After acquiring a Minolta X-700, a Yashica Mat 124G and a Olympus Trip 35 I ‘ve decided to no longer restrict myself by using only my Leica M8. These analog camera’s are able to produce some stunning pictures and as I’d like to update this blog more often, the trusty Leica has to put its ego aside ;-). I will still post only black and white pictures though. The tags used indicate which camera and film I’ve used. This time only it’s the iPhone…The first ‘analog entry’ will be one taken with the Minolta X-700. Change
