Double the Puff

July 29, 2010

A double explosure* of Sir Didymus and Madam Poitras, enjoying a bit of shade on the front steps of the Little Yellow Door. I am lovin’ that Laffy Taffy tongue Puff is showing off.

I sure had my work cut out for me when it came to removing dust from this scan. If I had a catchy nickname, like The 10 Cent Designer or The Hungry Detective it’d probably be “The Irresponsible Photographer,” or better yet– “The Lazy Scanner.”

Thanks to my laziness, though, I had the lightbulb idea to start drafting a post about scanning photos from negs and how I like to quickly/efficiently remove dust and turn ACR into my digital darkroom. It’s been awhile since I did a Tips & Tricks post, so I’m looking forward to it.

Soon! Till then, I’ll keep pumpin’ the blog up with my recent adventures in film.

Camera: Holga 120s
Film: Kodak Portra 160NC
Scanned from a negative developed by Blue Moon Camera & Machine
* Originally a typo, but upon later review I decided that “double explosure” is my new favorite term.

What did dogs do for enjoyment pre cars? Did horse riders have dogs leering over their shoulders enjoying the breeze? I actually thought this was a piglet from the thumbnail and thought, " WHAT?!". Think the frame makes this.

fun in the sun :) great shot – cute too!


"Sir Cuepy Creute Didymus"

[] I know I said it like a million times when we were hanging out last month, but I think he looks SO human almost all the time. Something about the darkened rims of his eyes and the expressions he gets on his face… It’s creepy! Cute, but creepy. Cuepy. Creute.

He looks strangely human to me in this picture.

I love this! Really great, Kimmy!

Goin’ for big car rides. Oh boy! The Puffster looks happier than a clam. =)

I love the shirt (shirt?) that reads “kodak” in the top right corner. This is a pretty explosively awesome photograph.

Thanks Sara! The Kodak lettering is actually part of the light leak. I have no idea how it happens like that, but I have it on a few other frames, too.

BTW, while I’m at it– I totally got your email and everything sounds awesome! I’ll send you a more detailed response this weekend, though. :)
