Hamish put a shout out on Twitter last week asking if anyone fancied sharing an entire roll of photos here on 35mmc. Having already done this a few times over the last few months on Twitter I jumped at the chance. Just like last week’s contributor, Jeremy Strange, I am a big fan of Eduardo Pavez Goye on YouTube and his Shoot Film episodes and took my inspiration for showing all the photos on a roll from him.
I got my Horizon 202 last summer (not long after Simon Forster started showing his shots on Farcebook) and it very quickly became my favourite 35mm point and shoot. I shoot a fair amount of panoramics in medium format but the Horizon is a lot less cumbersome and in many ways a lot more fun; even the worst shots have a certain charm to them. If you’re careful you can maximise your shots at 23 but sometimes your first shot is a just random one of the roof. Sometimes the film advance is a bit shonky and you end up with overlapped exposures, as you’ll see below.
So, here is a set of shots I took last December on JCH Streetpan 400 when we decided to walk from Baker Street to King’s Cross stations in London rather than change tube trains. These were processed in Kodak Xtol by A&M Imaging in Edinburgh, I scanned them on my Epson V850 and post-processed in Negative Lab Pro and Lightroom.
This is the first roll of JCH I’ve shot and I really like the contrast and the blacks, it handled my laissez-faire attitude to metering with the 202 admirably. I’ll hopefully get a chance to try it with an R72 filter for some infra-red action over the summer.
That’s your lot! Thanks for making it this far. If you’d like to see some more of my stuff you can find me quietly trying to #makeflickrgreatagain here.
