    Before the story about this really important Chinese city comes the part on how we've got there. And we did it by train. Every tourist goes by train, but not by that kind of train. Since there were only hard seats available on Taiyuan-Kaifeng route, we took the challenge.

    A Medical Mystery - Triples

    I was trying to make doubles with xbalboax and I took pictures of the Atlantic ocean in Maine with a Fisheye and he took pix of main street in New York ... the crazy mistake part is that unknown to both of us the slide film (velvia 100 speed) bought from ebay was already exposed when purchased and the crazy thing is that we thought it was blank yet we were MISTAKEN! it was exposed with pictures of some kind of gross surgery probably they were slides that a professor took to use in a class at a medical school, either way everybody wins with this mistake, except maybe the patient--- these pictures are either really cool or really disgusting - some people might not even want to look at them, I think they are kind of right on though :)

  • The Magic Mystery Of Multiple Exposure

    written by lucasjakobsson on 2009-01-16 in #news

    There’s something very exciting about not knowing what’s coming up next. Pleasant surprises, adrenaline rushes, and knock-your-socks-off kind of shocks – the feelings that you get with multiple exposures! Just in case you have not discovered this wonderful technique yet – multiple exposure is a method where you expose the film more than once. You’ll never know what you’d come up with, regardless if you try this trick randomly or carefully plan out your multiples! This technique gives you total control over your shots, allowing you to create a strangely endearing picture from layers of images!

    When he's not counting the number of cameras he has, my friend ndroo works in an IT company in Singapore. He pounds his laptop keyboard to make a living (and buy cameras & film). Apart from all the Diana+/F+ clones, an LC-A+, a Supersampler and a "couple" of other cameras he has collected, he said its not really safe to declare how many… because his wife may read this!
