Several months ago I get myself a Zenit 12XP. I was very impatient to use it but the lightmeter wasn't really working and so I forgot the camera. Last week I finally finished the roll in it.
I get my Zenit 12XP from something like eBay in Switzerland. I was very happy to get another big SLR camera. I went to a shop, bought myself the right batteries and putted them in the camera. Everything was fine and the lightmeter worked fine but only for some hours or days, I can’t remember. And so I’ve totally forgotten my camera and the film in it too.
Last week I finally took the Zenit again in my hands and filled the film and developped it at my home. I’m sure, that the chemichals were still ok but the film wasn’t that good anymore after the long time in the camera. At first all of the shots looked very underexposed though I acted after the ‘sunny 16 rule’. Scanning was pretty hard, because there were all kind of different, washed out colors. Though I really like the results.
So just forget your cameras and the film in it for some time and see how it comes out!
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.
I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
