the learning curve
So I decided to try some fuji 160 iso film (I had been using 400) in my holga and diana and to compensate for the difference in speed/light sensitivity, I went bulb-setting crazy. and I mean crazy, holding the shutter open for 15-45 seconds, maybe longer. And this--entitled "hmmm"--was the result. You know a shot is really bad when you can’t even determine where you were or what you were shooting. I am assuming I was in the woods, but I’m not sure. I’m also not sure if I had an extra fun filter on the holga or not. Bottom line, I’ve lost my rights to use the bulb setting. It doesn’t matter if I’m shooting in the pitch dark, no more bulb setting for me, at least for awhile.
