Reality So Subtle 6X6 & Holga 120 WPC – Mid August Pinhole Post

001_Rss6x6_Trix_001

During the month of August, typically, people is on vacation or otherwise, busy with the many things to do left behind throughout the year. For this reason also the publication on this blog slows down. But, for (probably) the only one of this month I wanted go “big”, publishing an unusual mix of images taken with pinhole cameras. In addition to the Holga WPC you already know, I used for the first time the “Reality so Subtle”  6×6.

Caput Mundi – Lomography Color negative 400 Test

002_OM2n_LomoColor400_011

Generally (and you can see it all in this blog) I prefer to shoot with film in black and white. Both from the point of view of personal expression and because I believe that is easier and cheaper to self-develop b/w instead of color. Occasionally, however, (you may have noticed this too) I like to take some color photos. I do not have so much experience in this regard, having only used the Kodak Ultramax 400 35mm and a couple of Fujifilm (Pro 400H and Reala 100) in medium format.

It was a long time I wanted to start shooting with a pinhole camera. To begin with, I got an Holga 120 WPC which was waiting patiently to be used. And so, yesterday morning, taking advantage of a beautiful day in late January, I was immersed in an immensely  fascinating and immortal landscape: the Roman Forum and the Palatine hill.

Diggin’ in the Past: Two Soviet Fisheye

Zenitar M_001

While rummaging in the cupboards, to decide what to put in the packages because of the imminent move, looks a bit where I go to drop my eye? Right on a box of slides with written over: “Colosseum December 2005 – Canon Eos 3000-8 and 16 mm”. Apart from the surprise to remember that even in 2005 (booming digital) I had the desire to shoot film , I was struck by the fact that I had done everything with two Soviet fisheye lenses .

Leica R5 – But she wasn’t mine

Leica R5_002

Who knows why, for some reason, every time I used a Leica, was never mine? The first time, an M7 with Summicron 35mm, I was entrusted by the magazine which I collaborate with (Fotografia Reflex), the second time, a D-Lux 6 (Digital), directly from the Leica factory itself. You can see some of the results on the Leica official blog. This time, I had the opportunity to test one R5 with the Vario-Elmar zoom 35-70mm f/3.5, thanks to a friend who had just bought it. Basically, I’m doing the beta-tester for him! Sooner or later … I’ll have to decide to get one of my own … 😉
