05-06-2018 Canon A1 - Fujifilm C200

The experimental film roll. Some of the last shots of Barcelona and also the first efforts to double exposure photography.

Eversince I saw the intro of the tv show True Detective (season 1 is one of my favs all time), I wanted to shoot double exposure shots myself. But where most photographers do it with the help of Photoshop, I wanted to do it just in camera, the real-real double exposure like it was invented.

From film roll 3 I started to scan my own film but now that I scan at way higher resolutions, I'm starting to see why most analog photographers don't shoot on Fujifilm C200 anymore, it's just lacks in detail, the skintones are just a bit of and the grain levels are pretty high, even for ISO200. So I bought myself some Porta 400 and Ektar 100 film, really excited to try those out!

A small extra note: the last 2 photos are shots of friends of mine who started their own brewery called "De Bestenaer". Looking forward to taste their own brewed beer!

One road trip every month - Barcelona

23-05-2018 Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona, the city full of Gaudi masterpieces, the ramblas and the eternal sunshine. But this time, I wanted to see the real Barcelona.

After a succesfull discovery of a new city last month (Frankfurt), it was time to head back to a city I visited 8 years ago: Barcelona. I have to say, the city had a major upgrade since my last visit. Way cleaner, more pedastrian and cyclist only areas and it felt nicer in some way. Lars Cleven, a film maker which i often work with, currently lives there and showed me some local spots that I probably wouldnt have seen within him, so thanks again for that buddy!

Besides 2 or 3 occasions, I never used the metro and just cruised around the city on my little longboard cruiser. It's such a convenient way to discovery the city. You really get to see the city instead of hopping on and off the metro lines. Barcelona surprised me this visit, mostly skipped all the touristy parts and just discovered the city by board. Be sure to check out the neighbourhood of El Born, GrĂ cia and my personal favorite, Raval, the next time you visit Barcelona!

Anyhow, here's a little video recap that I've made of this awesome trip:

35mm stories - #3

18-05-2018 Canon A1 - Fujifilm C200

Roll number 3 is fully dedicated to Barcelona. And these even aren't all the shots I took with my analog camera over there. Roll number 4 is also on it's way!

It was the first time I really got to shoot outdoors in harsh sunlight which gave me a challenge. Because I really wanted to keep a shallow depth of field with F2.8, but this was nearly inpossible because the A1 doesn't have a faster shutter then 1/1000. Maybe have to look if I can find ND filters for those good old lenses. But still, got to try to shoot some action shots at the local skateparks and also some awesome sunsets on multiple locations throughout the city. Dang I fell in love with Barcelona so much!
