The Sunday fraggle report

A busy weekend this weekend as on Saturday night I went out to a surprise party for Phil’s daughter Shelley. Her friend Sam organised a joint baby shower/birthday party for Shelley and we all turned up at The Avenue pub in Sunderland before Shelley arrived. I had picked up Phil’s sister Annette and Karly ( Phil’s daughter-in-law) and Karly’s daughter Katie, and was ready with the camera when Shelly arrived.

I didn’t do too well with the Fuji in this situation so am going to have to figure out what went wrong. Think I had ISO stuck on A so shots were taken at 6400 and came out grainy. Couldn’t bin them as everyone wanted to see the album on Facebook, so I gave them all a vintage coating. I did use the flash, which to be honest is a bit on the pathetic side, but yes, a rethink and research moment coming along!

Still they will make good memories for Shelley, and that’s more important than technical perfection. I guess.

What I am impressed with is the new B&W film from the Impossible polaroid film makers. Their generation 2 film is just about instant, doesn’t need to be shielded from light and left to develop for 45 minutes, and has really good contrast and tones. Β I took these next shots with my 3000 and a 600 film and am really impressed with how they’ve come out.

I have a flash on the 3000 with a bit of tissue taped over it to diffuse it, didn’t work that well on that last shot but the others are OK.

And now some cute cat shots πŸ™‚

  1. Great work with the instax film πŸ™‚ I don’t know how were the photographs before the vintage layer but they look good to me. ISO 3200 was my maximum comfortable with the X-E1 but it was comparing to my current camera is a 2005 model, I guess that versus your Nikons they’re different; also the luminous 1.4 helps a bit πŸ™‚
