100% unsuccess rate

Every time I’m at the office in Perth I take a good long look at the weather forecast to see if its worth lugging a camera in with me for a few shots at lunch or after work. I’m only shooting with the Holga at the moment and I really love Velvia 100 film, which means it really has to be bright sunshine for any shots.

So far, I’ve managed to bring it in only to see clouds and rain roll in, and leave it at home only to see, as today, the clouds break and the sun come out.

Arse!

I need to find some 400ISO colour 120 film I think. In the summer here it wont be a problem, its always bright sunshine, but in this damp attempt at spring where the weather forecast has been pretty much random compared to what is actually happening outside, Velvia 100 just isnt fast enough.

I’m in again tomorrow, and its looking like its going to be bright sun, I’m bringing the camera no matter what!

Holga-tastic

Finally finished the first film in the Holga – the sun came out this afternoon and allowed me to rattle off the last couple of shots on random stuff.   Took another few shots on the way home too – I hope they’re going to come out like I think they might.  Guess we’ll have to wait and see – need to shoot a few more films before its worth posting them off to the lab for processing.

Was going to go to Fremantle tomorrow to do some more shooting, but Jay’s back is really bad still, so its probably going to be a very gentle stroll down to the foreshore at Rockingham and a coffee instead.

Am itching to find out how these pictures come out!!!
