Photographing the sunset is very difficult, but it can give you amazing results! I was around the coves of Cozze, a seaside resort near my city, Bari, to take some photos, but it was very late and very dark! I had with me my trusty Holga 135BC, with a roll Colorplus Kodak ISO200. I was with some friends and I said ‘Go, use bulb mode and let’s try to get some nice photos’…
I started to try various shutter times, all strictly set to “cloud”. Here are the results. While the shutter opened for 3 seconds, I managed to get results like this! WOW! Supersaturated colors and above all, it was good to impress the soft and relaxing tones of a beautiful sunset over the sea!
By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
