I’ve shared some of my panoramic double exposure film experiments here before, but I just wanted to share another batch from around my neighborhood, The Mission District in SF, and from Mission Cliffs Gym.
In case you are wondering, these WIDE shots were all captured on film, with no digital composing. I’d take a shot on my LC-Wide camera, advance the frame half as much as usual, then take another shot. The resulting shots create surreal landscapes that blend into each other and take up about 6 to 14 inches of 35mm film. You can see more analog photos in this style on my Flickr page.
For this week’s 3D City column (on MissionMission), I posted a bunch of wigglegrams of Bit Shifter from a recent 8bitSF show. Since I still had a bunch of great photos from that night on my roll, I thought I’d share them here. These were taken with my Nimslo on 800 iso color film. For the flash, I used a Flashq Bluetooth remote trigger that I scored on Indiegogo (for anyone interested I recommend their new project here). This allowed me to play with different lighting angles as well as “hiding” the flash in the shot for creative lighting. Super fun!
These shots include 8bitSF regulars: Crashfaster, Noukon, Minusbaby, Together We are Robots, Emi Spicer, Bit Shifter, and Nick Drexler.
Without wasting any time, Christine and I shot another “Couple’s Roll” last week on an expired roll of 800 ISO film. For those unfamiliar, the idea is simply that one of us shots a whole roll of film, then passes it to the other to shoot on top of. These random double exposures are the result.
I’m excited to announce my next photography show, Analog:Glitches, at Photobooth SF. This show will be a collection of glitch’d out digital images (shot & edited on my iPhone) that are magically transferred onto real instant film using the Impossible Project’s Instant Lab. These images have all been tweaked using Decim8, Glitch Lab, TrueHDR, and various other techniques I’ve learned during my ongoing “appsperiment” series. Though work is experimental in nature, the show sort of represents my transition over the years from being an iPhone photographer to working primarily with film. Though I’m most at home shooting on a roll of Tri-X film, I’m still heavily influenced by the lessons I learned while shooting on a mobile device.
Impossible Glitches opens on March 22nd, 2014 at Photobooth SF with a party from 6-8pm. We’ll be showing some of my favorite Impossible Project images along with copies of a limited edition color zine collecting all 24 photos in the series. I’ll also be hosting a series of photowalks and tutorials to help teach some of my appsperiment techniques. More on that later.
