Take Shelter Part 2… Rolleiflex

This is the second part of the post from yesterday now that I have managed to get some more film developed.

Take Shelter Part 1

First lot of shots from Take Shelter gig on Saturday.  It was held at the WW2 fortress at Palmers Head which overlooks the airport. I have to say that it was a super sweet location to have a trio of Punk bands.

I got there late and totally missed Johnny and the Felchers as well as the first half of Numbskull.

Still have some film from my Rolleiflex to develop and will hopefully have that sorted by tomorrow…

Check out the bands

And some shots from Alex

this was the only shot I really got of Numbskull.

Great vantage points were to be had.

Last of all was Meth Drinker

Palmers Head

Went on a bit of an adventure last night with Fergus and Alex trying to get some more time lapse and long exposures. We started off going to Palmers Head above the Wellington Airport where I set up a time lapse on the roof of the main bunker and then went and did some light painting inside while it was ticking over (still have to process it into video). A few minutes after we arrived a couple on a date turned up with a romantic dinner complete with candles and a chilly bin filled with food. I think having three photographers along probably didn’t help the mood much so we left after about an hour. Fergus did get to share some of there alcohol though 🙂

I’m now have something like three rolls of film to develop from Rollei but I’m now just waiting to get my developing stuff back so I can finally develop them…

More Scanner Macro

A couple of more tests using my CanoScan 9000F Scanner as a macro camera… The first using a black box and the bottom scanning head only and the second one I mounted a petal to a 35mm slide mount and used the top scanning head which gives much higher resolution.

Leaf Scan

Still shooting my way through the first roll of film since Rollei’s come back from repair. I was working at Photo Warehouse the other day and talked to a guy on the phone who wanted a scanner to use as a macro. This got me to thinking that I could use my CanoScan 9000F to shine light through stuff, like leaves… Anyway here goes my first attempt with a partially decomposed leaf I found on the steps up to my house 🙂

Another shot from my Olympus XA3.

Sometimes black and white just doesn’t capture what you want it to…

Shoot From The Hip Olympus XA3 Styles

Technically Rollei’s back and fixed but here are some more shots from when they were away…

This is usually the camera that stays in the car for those “just in case” moments but it got out and about the week and a half Rollei was away.

Rollei’s Back!… But I Havent Had A Chance To Shoot Yet :(

So I picked up repaired Rollei on Wednesday afternoon and I have to say that the repair guy did a really good job. As well as fixing the shutter he also gave it a really good clean and fixed up a few other small issues as well as re timing and checking all the shutter speeds.

The unfortunate thing is that since I have picked it up I haven’t been able to get out and shoot and with working both days this weekend the likelihood of getting a full roll through for next week is looking pretty poor.

So that being said here goes a shot from pre-repair Rollei of some timelapsing with my D90 🙂

Things To Do While Your Rolleiflex Is Away Being Repaired #6

Photograph My Left Foot.

I just realised the other day that in the last 30 years my foot has been like this I have never actually taken a photo of it…

I was run over when I was about 8 years old, totally my fault crossing the road without looking. The back wheel of the car ran over my entire foot but skidded over the last two toes basically ripping them off. One was stitched back on and the other was just left as a stump. The doctors had been planning to take the stump off when I was older to make my foot look more normal but I like it the way it is 🙂 . I was told I would never have very good balance on this foot but after a lifetime of skiing and skating my balance is better than most people I know.

I keep forgetting that most people either don’t know or have forgotten about it… Its not a big deal its just part of who I am 🙂

This might be one of the last posts like this since I go and get Rollei back from repair this afternoon 🙂 It had its shutter fixed and a good clean and check so it should be sweet 🙂
