It’s just a coincidence that my 12 Rolls of Film project wrapped up in December. It should have been finished by August, but I got off to a late start due to technical difficulties. Anyway, it’s been a fun experiment to shoot with film. I learned a few things when I experimented with a camera that I’m not afraid of breaking…or dunking…or losing. I’m looking forward to the next photo project, but that’ll have to wait for the new year.
Went to a combined birthday party for several Twitter friends at Ice Palace. I’m almost done with this project. I’m just looking for something to do with a film camera that I haven’t tried yet.
I went on the Worldwide Photo Walk. I didn’t lead one this time really, I just had too many other things going on this year. Mark Swing, from The Hawaiian Islands Photographic Society, put it all together and when his photowalk filled up to its maximum number of people, I added on an overflow event. Overall it was a very casual, fun walk from the Zoo/Waikiki Shell to the International Marketplace. I haven’t been inside the International Market place since I was a kid and I don’t remember what the inside looked like.
I didn’t shoot the whole roll while I was on the photowalk, I hda about 10 shots left over. Later that day I went to another photoshoot where I had hoped to take some portraits. I brought my 85mm f1.8 to see what kind of bokeh film could produce. Alas, there was a back focus issue with my camera and lens and I’ve got some really sharp pictures of ears, but not so much the eyes. Oh well, time to find a new body perhaps?
I went on a sunset / evening photowalk with some friends last week and just made it in under the monthly deadline for this project. Nothing fancy or experimental in this roll, but I did confirm that the hot shoe on my Nikon N6006 still works and TTL kinda, sorta works.
