Show Your Stash, kleinerkaries!


For this week's edition of Show Your Stash community member and LomoGuru kleinerkaries shares her stash form a previous holiday in Malta. She brought quite a few cameras during the trip, and took a lot of beautiful photos.

Name: Wiebke
LomoHome: kleinerkaries
Location: Bremen, Germany

Please tell us a little about yourself. What have you got planned today and where are you going?

My name is Wiebke and I am from northern Germany. I’m going on a short holiday trip to Malta. I’ve never been there and am very excited about what to see and experience there. I would like to catch some sun, read a book (I am too busy during the week when I am working) and shot nice pics there.

Please itemize everything and tell us why you’re bringing each of them, or why they’re special.

Bag: I generally use this normal bagpack with lots of little front and side pockets and not a special camera bagpack. I’ve got little bags with which I try to protect the cameras so that they don’t get damaged by being squeezed into each other inside the bagpack. My Belair is wrapped in a scarf which I can also use to protect myself against the wind or the sun. There is also a little bag for the tiny stuff you always need like new batteries, tape, DVD marker, little torch etc.


Belair X 6-12 Jetsetter with 58mm Lens, Belairgon 90mm and 35mm back

I love medium format panoramas! So my Belair had to come along. I took the plastic lens and the Belairgon, because I’m not quite sure yet if I prefer the unfocused plastic lens shots or the sharper Belairgon shots. So I wanted to find out on this trip and also have a look at the results of Belairgon 35mm pics.

Horizon Perfekt

Not only do I love medium format panoramas, I love panoramas in general. Which means my Horizon Perfect needs to be packed as well. I like the bubble-eye level in it, so that you can place the horizon correctly. To find out the correct exposure, I use a hand held light meter.

LC-A and LC-A+
Actually, I only wanted to take one of them and chose the LC-A+, because its light meter is currently more reliable. But then I realized that I needed to be able to set a lower ISO for the Tungsten films than the LC-A+ could do so I took both.

Holga 120 GCFN
Vignetting! Unfocused bits! Lights Leaks! Does anybody know of a reason to leave the Holga GCFN at home? I don’t.

Holga 135 Pan

Did I mention that I love panoramas? Well, I received this camera only a week or so before I went to Malta. I already had a test shot, but the film would not forward. Now I modified it and am curious, if it will work now.

Spinner and Motorizer
Although I am generally fond of panoramas, I have not yet warmed up with my Spinner. There’s too much on the picture, as well as me, because I always have that awful “spinner finger” in the picture and tend to have a ridiculous facial expression when caught on a photo. Maybe I like the results with the Motorizer more, because it’s slower and I can position myself better.

Unfortunately my Spinner destroyed itself in front of the most beautiful panorama of Gozo, the Azure Window, so I could not get any more pictures.

Canon EOS 55 (with Sigma 28-300mm and Petzval lens)
I normally cross-process the films in my other cameras. But I have already been unlucky a few times when cross processing the photos made my souvenirs too green or too pink. That’s why I always have an SLR with me, loaded with slide film which I don’t cross process. This way, I also have pictures which are closer to what I actually saw on my trips and I will always have one film that will work out fine.

Accessories: Light meter, Holga soft spot filters, tripod

Film: Kodak E100VS, Lomography Xpro Chrome 100, Lomography Xpro Slide, Fuji Velvia 100F, Lomography Tungsten 64, Fuji Tungsten 64, Lomochrome Purple, Fuji Provia 100F, Fuji Provia 400X, Kodak E100Plus

Other Stuff/Miscellaneous: DVD marker, sunscreen, sunglasses, “The Cuckoo’s Calling”, tourist guide

I am from Northern Europe and it is the first time this year that I will see proper sunshine. I don’t want to burn, so I need sunscreen! My sunglasses are prescription eyeglasses as I am blind as a bat without them. And I need a book to keep me busy when I’m waiting for a bus or am bored in case it will rain too much. As I am a tourist, I must take a tourist guide. I need the DVD marker to write the name of the camera I used with it on the film once it is full.

Thanks to *kleinerkaries* for showing her stash and sharing her analogue adventure!

    Photographer Gilbert Blecken Captures Iconic Musicians on Film

    Back in the 1990s, Gilbert Blecken was a big music fan and wrote for his own small music fanzine. He would interview bands in between sound checks and take photographs of them. He was never a professional photographer or worked for a company; he simply did it for his fanzine. Twenty years on, Gilbert’s photographs have matured into an amazing documentation of some of the biggest music icons of that era. We caught up with Gilbert to ask him about these photographs and the fascinating story behind them.
