Check out roxyvonschlotterstein bag of analogue tricks for this week's Show Your Stash!
LOCATION: Berlin, Germany
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m Susann from Berlin, capital of Germany. I am working with a bank and in my spare leisure time I like to read, write, travel and take pictures. Analogue photography is my anchor to a fast moving digital world.
What have you got planned today and where are you going?
In July I will be on a weekend trip to Prague, Czech Republic with my family. My younger brother will celebrate his birthday there, and that’s the reason why we’ll heading to Prague. I have been to it a dozen times and I still love the city. For the first time I will picture Prague analogue only and – hopefully – mostly during sunshine, without tourist groups and a lot on medium format. Besides, I might have some Czech beer.
Please itemize everything and tell us why you’re bringing each of them. (Cameras, Film, Other Stuff/Miscellaneous)
The following items set my photo kit for this trip:
I generally use an ordinary back pack. I prefer backpacks over sidebags, it’s better for my back during sight seeing and city trips. Most of my cameras have their own carrying case, for the ones without it I bring little bags to protect the cameras so they don’t get damaged. Besides the backpack offers enough space for all of my other personal belongings I might need during the day.
Rolleiflex 3,5B – I can’t go on a trip without a medium format camera so I carry my new but old Rolleiflex 3,5B with its leather carrying case, lens hood and H1 filter. It’s a heavy one but I love it. I bought it second hand recently and felt in love with it immediately after just one film roll. Actually I wanted to carry my Lubitel 166+ but I changed my mind in favor of this vintage camera. The Rolleiflex can’t do double exposures but the brilliant working film transport is worth the weight.
LC-Wide and LC-A+ – The LC-A+ is usually with me and I don’t need to tell you about the many reasons why; we all love our LC-A’s. The LC-Wide is brand new, so I want to try it in the wild. At the moment it’s loaded with Kodak BW400 CN which is the film I will swap with lomo friend trash-gordon-from-outer-space after returning home which will hopefully work well.
I shot a film roll of Adox Colour Implosion with the LC-A+: pretty nice results but I hoped for a bit more of 70s flair.
Besides the film I prepared for the film sway I shot a film roll of Lomography Color X-Pro Sunset Strip 100 (ISO set to 100) with the LC-Wide. I expected a lot from the film, like my lomo friend freakoftheweek showed on his Paris photos, but my shots are very blueish and overexposed. LC-Wide and Sunset Strip might not be the best combination. Better luck next time.
Horizon Perfekt – For the first time I am taking it beyond the border of Berlin. I expect some great panorama shots from it but my skills with the camera are still very low so I need some more practice.
I combined the Horizon Perfekt with Redscale XR 50-200, Kodak BW400 CN, Agfaphoto APX 100, Fujichrome Velvia 50, Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 and Lomography CN 400. The Velvia and Lomo Slide shots are overexposed, I love how the Redscale turned into deep yellow, orange and red shots (just ignore the blue lines and dots), but the self developed black and white panoramas are my favourites this time.
Fuji Instax Mini Neo Classic 90 with close up lens (which I guess I will not need but you’ll never know). I want my little brother to have some pictured memories of his birthday right away.
Prague on Instax looks very great, don’t you think?
No matter where I am going, I carry too many film rolls with me, each and every time. Despite the fact that I know I won‘t need every single one, I pack one of every kind for every possibility. That means ordinary color negatives ranging from 100 to 800 ISO as well as different black and white rolls and a few types of slide film. Besides I enlarge my film package with special films and instax.
The following film rolls will be in my backpack:
