Now what I noticed when looking at the results is: light and the spinner have a difficult relationship..
Look at this shot at the market (dark in the area where we were standing, light in the stand itself):
On the subject of aim (which is not my strong point anyhow, but more on that in a different blog):
1. Being used to a ‘normal’ point and shoot camera or a SLR means I point at what I want to be in the picture..
For the Spinner I have learned that this is not so handy! You end up with the object at the edge of your photo.. Which can be nice:
Or just plain, stupid:
My main problem though: LIGHT!
Inside, cloudy or later in the afternoon/evening? PROBLEM:
The photos get really dark and grainy… I was using a Fujifilm color ISO 400.. I will experiment with different ISO film, maybe Lomography ISO 800. What do you think? Do you have that with your Spinner?
Overall I do love the Spinner pics.. But there is still a lot to learn..
PS: Remember to shoot all the way to the end of your film, sometimes that little half spin that the Spinner will do at the end is definetely worth the frustation of your full photo idea not working out!
