An adventure into the past: first photos!

In my last post I talked about my new old film camera. I’ve since been out and about taking photos with it, done the processing at home, scanned the negatives and now I can show you some of the photos I got!

The process of scanning the photos was somewhat difficult; the negative scanner I borrowed from my dad is an old one and isn’t compatible with my computer. I realised I can use my DSLR with a macro lens to photograph each negative, so I made a negative holder out of cardboard and mounted it to the front of my lens and that did the trick nicely!

Below are the results of my work. Some of them didn’t quite work out, particularly the last one. I think some of the negatives didn’t develop properly, I’m not too sure why it’s introduced flashes of colour to the film though, perhaps you might know?

My fiancée bought me a “make your own paper pinhole camera” book for Christmas, so watch this space for a post or two about pinhole photography!
