These are some film shots which were recently accepted by the agency, proving there’s still life in the Olympus OM1 yet. All taken on Agfapan APX 100 film rated at box speed, developed in Rodinal 1+50 for 12 minutes.
This didn’t seem that good through the viewfinder – a bit of post-processing worked nicely though.
This was shot on an overcast day on the 50mm F1.4 at max aperture. Looking at this now I should have cropped away the roof at the lower left just leaving the tower.
Same lens with the narrow depth of field blurring the closed leaves into a nice soft mush.
This is a covered walkway with plants trained over arched supports. As this was taken in autumn, most of the leaves had fallen off and the gaps allowed dappled light to filter through which gave a nice effect. Zuiko 28mm.
This shallow puddle was full of fallen leaves – providing a way to break up the bare tree branch reflection. 28mm lens again.
It’s strange – I take shots on film equipment which are very different from those on digital kit. Maybe it’s the fixed focal lengths or the slower approach. Anyone else find this?
Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography.
