Film on Friday 21

Diamond Head. Ektar.63040024


One frame

Monday afternoon paddle from club site to Honolulu Harbor buoy and then home again, always Diamond Head in sight to begin and end practice. Frame capture from my trusty GoPro Hero 3+.

Film on Friday 9

Snapshots from the Olympus 35 RC rangefinder, a shutter priority camera, using Kodak Ektar 100 and shot at box speed. Bad combination of camera and film for a new shooter like me. I recall taking these photographs in bright sunlight but I may have erred in one and/or all of these steps by selecting the wrong shutter speed, not setting the F/stop to Autoย and then setting the aperture manually.ย  Nearly the whole roll looked underexposed to me. The featured image being one of the few that turned out sorta okay and the other photos I tweaked the exposure level some to my liking. I’ll definitely give the Olympus another try but perhaps with another type of film.

Photos taken in January and February of 2017.

Na Wahine O Ke Kai

Photos taken on Sunday the 24th of September at the finish line of the women’s race across the Molokai Channel. The 41 mile race begins at the Hale O Lono Harbor on the island of Molokai and ends at the beach fronting the Hilton Hawaiian Village on Oahu. My canoe club’s boat launch faces the finish line so we always have a front row seat at the conclusion of the men’s and women’s races across the channel. It’s a great way to spend a Sunday with a fun atmosphere.

Double exposures

All photos taken with a Nikon 6006, first exposures in Honolulu and the second exposures in Peschiera del Garda, Italy. Fun experiment I’d do again.
