    (My) Life in Colour III: The Road
    Last in the series of colour images from film holga and digital SLR shooting. This is part of a personal series on friends, family and home.
    Previous series are just below this in the 'Out and About' forum.


    These are all now together in album on my website chosen from images in these three series.

    It is a privilege to be able to view your photos, they are so lovely! Wonderful, they are a still movie. Would be interesting to do a ken burns vid with a nice soundtrack actually...

    No 7 is my fave.

    Thanks for the thought, glad to hear it looks good - think I've said before but it's kind of experimenting with a certain feel. #7 is from eastern Wairarapa several years ago. Riding my bike out there and came across a farm's little graveyard. Went back a few times but the summer look always seemed the best, even though I thought a stormy look would have worked.

    One utter last one (like I think I mentioned, there's a parred down series I'll be adding to on the website, I think three posts of this number of images is enough!)

    Right. I've decided. These are great.

    The sense of there being a huge back story to each image is intense.

    Thanks very much. I said before but I tossed it up for a while as well, however overall I think the feeling conveyed is what I was going for. One problem is that the retro-look is pretty popular now with hipstamatic and instagram, and so much that comes out of those is just average snapshot photography that one worry is the images are kind of rejected out of hand due to the look, which mostly seems to be a way of making images more interesting when the content or composition isn't interesting by itself.

    Was difficult choosing the final series from these three posts (and other images too), in part because some of digital images I already have in black and white and prefer them that way more as stand-alone images or part of other sets. There are maybe half a dozen like that, some included in these sets as colour and some left out.


    The other thing that was tough was getting the digital shots to look similar to shots taken with a fifty dollar plastic camera (which is actually surprisingly decent). I think the final product is hard to tell the difference, so that's good.

    Love the people (and dog) shots, Camus. They work especially well with this.

    I have a theory that bye and large all our photo albums look much the same.
    The box brownie was brought out when people came, occasionally an uncle was an enthusiast.

    These are lovely, it is just such a shame the cross processed look and lomography has been bastardised by crap like instagram and its ifriends.

    Aye, its very hard to look past the instagram feel and see if theres content.

    Yeah the digitised lomography look is certainly getting done to death in some quarters. I guess the price of instagram shows how big that is.

    There was an interesting fuss recently when photojournalist Ben Lowy photographed the war in Libya with an iphone using hipstamatic I think. Can't find the article but I think it was the New York Times that ran a big story about photographing war with an iphone, not about the actual war. It certainly got a lot of coverage anyway. A lot of people felt it was the entirely wrong emphasis, and it certainly made you feel pretty uneasy to see a story about that at the time.

    Oh and I thought I'd add, for interest, that most of these are either digital or Holga 135BC, which actually pretty decent in terms of 'image quality'. Do have some with the classic 120N medium format camera, but that thing is really something else. I really like it, but it's so different it doesn't fit in well with the other images as a set. An example:

    whereabouts was #18 taken?
    and I really like the 2nd to last one #31?, the whole set has me wanting to get a holga for myself.
    The only stupid questions are the ones that you don't ask...

    #18 is Riversdale beach, east coast of Wairarapa. #31ish is a digital one (just can't be accurate with depth of field on a holga!) from near Breaker Bay on the Wellington south coast.
