The Beatles Songbook Doubles

2

The Beatles is definitely a constant source of inspiration. Here's a doubles series I did which was inspired from a songbook I have of the group.

The Beatles – THE band of the 20th ceintury. They are a source of inspiration. There is this wonderful illustrated songbook I have. Listening to some of their songs again I got inspired and took the book. What illustrations caught my eye? What lyrics?

I grabbed my SLR and shot a first layer. Somehow I managed to interrupt the auto rewinding of the film so I could insert it again and shot the second layer. I did the same with a second roll of AGFA Vista 200, but this time more to the theme “Waiting” as I am joining the project The Art Of Waiting by Dirk Lancer

Actually the plan was to send him one film for the project. But what did I do? I collected all films out of my fridge and sent them off. As the SLR reads the DX code and two layers mean over esposure I let the lab pull the films one stop.

Still I really like the results.

    I remember going through this book when I was little, because my Dad is a massive Beatles. It's an amazing book and definitely a source of inspiration. Well done on your efforts and thanks for sharing.

    Fresh from the LomoLab: My Summer at a Campsite

This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket. Have a look after the jump!

    A Salute to the Masters: Stairs (A Tribute to Alexander Rodchenko)

    This article is a tribute to the great Russian photographer, sculptor, graphic designer, and painter Alexander Rodchenko. He was a pioneer in the search for unusual perspectives, with extreme view from above or from below, and with an innovative use of the diagonals and tilted views in his dynamic compositions. For this article, I was inspired by his most famous photo, a woman climbing a staircase, taken in 1930, which is reminiscent of the famous Odessa stair of the film "Battleship Potemkin" by Sergei Eisenstein.

    The entire Kodak Elitechrome series belong to my favorite films. From the EB, to the EBX, ED, and EL; they all have great features once you know how to use them well. The EL with its 400 ISO hardly gets any attention, which is also because of the fact that it is more uncommon. But that is about to change with this. Here's some e-love.

    Fresh from the Lab: One Roll of Film and the Lubitel 166U

    Adi, Ekeu, and I did a lomowalk around downtown Bandung last Saturday, the beginning of November. We planned to use our Lubitel cameras with only one roll of film each. We were inspired by the One Roll of Film Project by four Tokyo-based photographers with their Hasselblad cameras. This is about the one roll of film I shot with the Lubitel 166U, which made me love shooting in medium format even more.
