A $40 experiment…

… continued.

Fall 2020 ‘Roid Week is October 18-23, a month and a half away.

It’s my fave photo-event and I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of awesome instant photography from its many participants. So much talent. Check out a Flickr Gallery of my faves from April…

I’ve made good progress with the LX100/SQ10 project.

To start the experiment, I printed a few black and white shots on regular Instax Square film, taken using the LX100 just to see if the idea was feasible.

It was. The three shots above were proof enough.

Over the last month and a half I’ve printed a handful of decent shots, scanned a few, and still have a coupla’ packs of Instax Black to use before ‘Roid Week gets here.

Every shot had differently lighting, so a consistent process was never really an option, but I still managed to get some satisfying results.

Plus, I haven’t wasted toooooo many shots.

It’s been interesting.

Circle. Square.

Yet another photographic obsession.

In my travels with cameras, I discover a lot of round or circular objects, and since my fave and probably most frequently used aspect ratio in photography is the square, I’ll center these objects and make a photo.

Here’s a montage I put together of 16 faves.

I also assembled an album with 88 examples of circle/square on Flickr, check it out…

Flashlight.

Used nightly.

Taken with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100, using the Dynamic B&W setting. It. Is. Awesome.

Handy tool for taking Annie out back at night.

I’m clearly drawn to round or circular objects centered in a square. I’ll dig through the archives and see if I can’t put together a montage.
