I had to do something other than street photography for todays 365 shot, I was starting to rely on it too much. Luckily the Our Daily Challenge group on flickr is always there to give me a hint at some direction for a theme.
I’ll be honest though this was taken from the street as it’s a display in a shop window. . . . . .
Olympus E-PL2 / 20mm f1.7
A little Mark magic in LR3 and Photoshop for some yummy retro texture, tone and frame.
Thanks for the creative direction ODC.
It was nice to be working on something in photoshop again.
So two weeks down.
Really got into the spirit of the 365 today after a little wander around the city picking up a few interesting bit & bobs to use in this project. After shooting a few different things I remembered my old propack and thought it’d look pretty retro against the funky paper I’d bought.
Even better, I discovered it still has some unused film it it. Polaroid 667 no less. Now seeing as this film has been discontinued for a good few years these could be the last two remaining unexposed sheets of the stuff . . . . . . . . . I’m feeling I need something special to shoot with it now (if it is still even usable as it’s been loaded for over 4 fours)
Also found I can still get film for the camera now made by fuji at around £15 a pack, so that’s £1.50 a shot. Not bad for iso3000 B&W instant.
Hmmm more to come in the future on this discovery I think.
Meanwhile for those needing more Polaroid fixings this should feed your appetite.
Canon 5D mkII (not much of a tech difference there eh?)
EF 50 1.8 (I think I’m liking this more than the sigma 50 . . . . .)
Natural window light.
