Back to Anologue photography – Testing the M.P.P. 5 x 4 inch film camera i recently bought – using fuji instant film.

I decided to go back to anologue photography for a project experimenting with polaroid or fuji instant film. Both are no longer produced and Its becoming harder to get hold of polaroid but you can still find fuji instant thats not too far out of date.

I managed to get 4 packs off ebay, expiration date 2017.

Ive not used a 5 x 4 camera for over 25 years so it took a bit of patience to set up.

These cameras are not easy to use. Firstly its hard to see the image through the back. You have to use a cover over your head to block out the light so you can see an image.

Also the image is upside down and right to left, so you have to really think about your composition.

When you have your image composed you then have to place the film back into the viewing area, which means you cant see the image when taking the photo. This is not much of a problem when photographing landscapes or still lives but becomes a real pain when photographing people or moving objects.

test pics using fuji fpc 100 instant sheet film (same as polaroid instant)

next i am going to make ’emulsion lift’ images from these prints. This is where you lift the emulsion off the print and float it onto art paper, creating a unique effect.
I will also do some shots to create ‘image transfers’ where the image is transfered onto dry paper before the full development time has occured.

I will post again with full instructions on how to do image transfers and emulsion lifts.

Plagiarism! … or not?

Almost five years ago I participated together with my wife and my daughter on a competition called “The Family Run”. It consisted on a race among families on which, at that time, we finished the 2nds…

The thing is that now, they are organizing another one and they prepared all the advertisements and stuff in order to promote the event… the funny thing is that my wife found in one of the posters of the race someone familiar….

Yes! the guy of the right who is holding the hand of a child is MYSELF! I am famous!!!!

But, wait, this boy is not my daughter… and neither the lady is my wife!!!! WTF!!!

By one side is always good to see yourself in these kind of things… it is not the first time it happened to me, 3 years ago the organizers of Spanish Marathon Championship use my pic (FYI, which is the one of my profile…) in order to put it on the cover of their magazine… Frankly, I did not complaint at all…

But now, it is different, they modified my picture not only adding some effects but also removing my wife and daughter from the original…

I don’t remember if I signed anything regarding images rights there but… I think they should told me before, shouldn’t them?

My iphone photography – test shot – flower and old fence post.

Ive been trying to decide for a while how to photograph this fence post so i thought i’d take a couple of test shots on my iphone. Hoping to stimulate ideas and decide whether to take it into the studio and photograph it with studio lights…

Taken with iphone SE. processed in photoshop CS6.
