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 Auto and then setting the aperture manually.  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.

Family on Friday

A rare occurrence happened which compels me to record it. My family took our Boston Terrier for a walk on the beach at Diamond Head. The kids came through the sheer force of my wife’s will, I very much enjoyed it and would love to have it happen more but … The kids had a good time the sunset was spectacular and the wife and I got some great pictures

Next shooter is my Olympus Pen EEs, I’m attempting to document my gear as I got them chronologically. This is a half frame camera so out of a 24 exposure roll I ended up with 48+ shots. Interesting camera because the cells around the lens determine the exposure level for the photo. I have a roll developed and scanned from this camera, next time I process film I will have to specify to the lab I’d like two shots per picture and if they could scan my negatives at a higher resolution. All pictures except those of the camera taken by the PEN EEs

Here’s another shooter from my gear collection.

Yashica Electro 35 GS produced from 1970 to 1973. I bought it in mid November 2016 but I have not shot it yet. (shot with an iPhone 6)

Gotta include a pic of Mr. Button

A rare event for me watching the sunrise at Diamond Head. (shot with an iPhone 6)
