Diana Roll 5 & Sprocket Rocket Roll 1

29th March, 2018 by Daniel

Roll 5 is a couple from George’s birthday party and a couple from the day of his actual 6th birthday. Again, not many have come back from this roll. I think it was ISO100 so I’m guessing they just haven’t come out at all? For indoors it seems the flash would be needed and only work quite closeup. You can see from the Sprocket Rocket shots below how the flash as not really helped the indoor party shots, creating a fuzzy haze that takes a fair bit of correction to see what’s going on properly.

The sprocket rocket camera has such a wide-angle view that it makes you think quite differently what kind of thing you want to take pictures of. I’d seen some great examples of people but landscapes always seem to be something I like to pick up. At work there’s some great views and they are changing with the building work all of the time so I guess it’s nice to capture this moment in time. You can see lots of cranes at work but also the activity of the trains.

First roll out of the sprocket, I quite liked using 35mm film and I may, ahem, have picked up a ‘normal’ 35mm camera (a Holga) – the film seems a lot more easily gotten hold of (not that 120 is that difficult with Amazon) but processing is half the price too.

It’s still frustrating not getting back as many images as you think you’ve got but I guess that’s just the shift to analogue, what you have in your mind and just plain forgetting the settings are wrong sometimes. Certainly the setting of the bowling alley was no good with the 100ISO film.
