Mirror Toilet

This is the toilet at Carlucci Land Mini golf and Sculpture Park in Happy Valley, Wellington. Super cool place to go and explore even if you aren’t into mini golf 🙂

Airport Sleeper

I haven’t had much luck finding sleepers lately, although with the weather warming up I’m pretty sure they will start coming out again… Couldn’t resist this one at the airport 🙂

Flower Shooter

While waiting for another time Lapse to complete I shot this guy who later came up and showed me his picture… I have to say I was impressed… It was the most original shot I saw being taken in the couple of hours I was there 🙂

Expose Yourself

Unfortunately the sign that says “Expose Yourself” is partially obscured 😦 Damn it!

Tide Timelapse

I’m still playing around with timelaspe photography.

I took this one about a month ago but have had problems putting it together since the counter went round 9999 and started at 0001 half way through, which messed up the sequence.

Friendly cow

Holga Pano

Another test shot from my converted Holga… The frame goes all the way to the edge of the film but my scanner wouldn’t let me scan with the right exposure so I had to use the 35mm scanner adaptor which didn’t give the sprocket holes 😦

I really need to make that scanner mask…

How To Change A Holga 35mm Adaptor To A Panoramic 35mm Adaptor

The other day I found The front of a Holga 120 camera whilst roaming the city. It had obviously been outside for a while and the battery contacts for the flash were missing but it still seemed to be in pretty good working order, just missing the back.

I had always wanted to convert one of these into a 35mm Panoramic camera and even though you can buy adaptors that will do this, without the sprocket holes, I wanted to make it go all the way to the edge of the film so that the sprocket holes were in the image.

The only adaptor I could get was a standard 35mm one which just had a 36mmx24mm cut out. Below is how I adapted the adaptor 🙂

Shot from the camera after it had been converted.

This was the part that I found with no back and the flash not working

It was missing the back, which made it pretty unusable.

This is the 35mm adaptor I bought which had a back and a film holding plate.

The only 2 tools required for the conversion… A flat file and a saw (mine had a jewellers blade which lets you cut 360 degrees rather than just straight)

After it had been cut out and the plate filed smooth.

The adaptor plate in the camera.

Film loaded and ready to go.

Lots of insulation tape.

The 35mm adaptor came with a sticker that you put on the frame advance knob. I advance the film 2 frames instead of 1 for each shot.

This is why I ended up using so much insulation tape on the back of the camera. Some people like this effect but I would rather not have it 🙂

End result… I scanned it on my CanoScan 9000F Scanner which scans 120 film by just laying it on the scanner bed… Im going to make a custom scanner mask to hold the film flat sometime in the future 🙂

Enjoy
