I assemble watches
That's why I am not taking photos.
Also my eczema is healing. For the second summer god doesn't want me to go out.
Good glass really work like magic.
So shooting IMAX film on medium format actually gives me less image per frame due to the sprocket holes.
Losing its handle to aging
Shanghai GP3 100
This film pushes well up to ISO 400. I don't really need the 400 version if I can push it any time I want.
Add something and change something, rather uncontrollably.
Good tool for image play.
Spits out interesting image but not photography.
It's lacking the experience.
Impressionism via Midjourney
I love money.
Film vibe with a phone
Stuff I saw on the street
Definitely can but not sure if I did
That guy on the right
He knows the drill.
Rollei RPX 400 is the flattest film base I have ever used
No more TLR.
No more convertible with reduction mask.
There was only myself shooting this photo.
The chemical I bought didn't work so digitally.
The key is to cut off both ends of the curve, invert color, crank up temperature, then invert back.
Not sure how to focus properly. Maybe I don't need to.
Blending right in.
I just realized I can get 20 rolls of Shanghai GP3 for the same amount of money I spent on Lubitel 166U.
湯郷温泉 Yunogo Onsen
There is no road
There are footprints left by others, but there's no a perfect way to go.
Japan Trip (2019)
Maybe I like looking forward to it than actually going.
Sometimes things look more 3D in black and white and I don't know why.
Even Semi Leotax
A triplet can do this. Meanwhile I am somewhat disappointed by corner sharpness of Tessar.
Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens
The kind of things middle-age women get crazy about.
Very wide and very long
Stitching panorama becomes quite easy with Hugin.
Excited looking flowers
Not sure whether it's misaligned lenses or just how Industar-24 works.
A photo stream of my own allows me to post my photos freely.
As long as there's good light and composition, most other things can be post-processed pretty well.
Getting back to work
The last day of a long holiday is always hard.
Some scenes just look perfect if I stay away and not looking at it the second time.
Looking forward to
Trip to Japan in 3 weeks.
Autumn leaves in black and white
I like the perceived depth along the road.
Sometimes I hope he look beyond a shadow.
Afternoon in Lamma Island
Surreal scene of total darkness outside despite the bright afternoon sunlight.
Crank up the suspiciousness with Luminar AI.
I couldn't help it.
Autumn leaves in Tsing Yi Park
Stitched together a couple photos because even 100mm is too long for park landscape.
Ended up shooting birds like those middle-aged people. Lovebirds included.
Christmas and New Year
Developed the roll of Shanghai GP3 100 shot during late December.
In respective order: Lamma Island, Pokemon trading card unboxing, Tabletop game day, Cup noodle before New Year sunrise.
Sunrise on June
Feel the silence and summer morning breeze.
Mount Rokko, Hyogo, Japan
Two edits of the same photo, not sure which one is better.
The state of nature is we are all alone. Yet we can also choose leaning onto something, thereby making some of us less lonely.
Stacking hills looking almost cartoonish.
Bulk loaded Kodak 5294
Bulk loading is fine as long as they make sure it's usable up till the last shot. I could maybe treat this as a half-frame shot though.
Taiwanese rain tree
We've got three of these downstairs, all starting to turn yellow as it gets cold.
First sunrise of 2023
Last sunset of 2023
