Hamburg, summer 2020.
Even though springtime seems to be just around the corner, Hamburg days in February can still be dark and bleak.
To help everyone hang in there, here are some photos to remember the light of summer, and hopefully give a foretaste of the summer to come.
A3-sized Risograph prints of my photo “eternal summer” are now available from Tim in the nachladen for twelve euro a pop.
Reflex no. 06 (January to March 2019) is now available in the nachladen.
After a few bleak weeks, spring has finally come to Hamburg. Much more fun to be out and about with the camera when the weather is like this.
After toasting a few films with the “Canon P” rangefinder I got in Japan earlier this year I ran into problems when trying to scan the negatives: The film gate of the Canon is just ever so slightly larger than those of the Pentaxes I usually use, resulting in a ever so slightly larger area of film exposed to light. This made it impossible to leave a border of unexposed film around the picture in the digital file, which I have grown used to.
The solution is to file out the negative holder of the slide copier I use to digitize my 35mm films. This leaves just enough room around the negatives made with the Canon to form a black border. The negatives from the Pentaxes are not affected by this.
Below an example taken with the Canon P, now with proper black border of unexposed film.
