...with my new Baby - the Muse with plastic! This is just a few photos on my first roll.
For those who don't know me, I'm a bit of a purist. I'm probably the only one on Earth that still uses a film camera, my beloved Nikon FM2, and have no plans to ever get a digi cam. I prefer B&W too. After 5 years with my LBO, I gave in...actually it's the pinhole/zoneplate lens that made me make the move. My muses are Igor, Ollie, Codrin amonst others. I'm so inspired by their work.

Done with HP5 1970something film. I love grain!

Thanks for looking.
Helene

Great start Eleni, I'm glad that some of my work you found inspiring. Lovely soft images. I'm hoping to see some snow in our area. But for know it is quite boring. Keep it up a good work and don't give up your camera.

Cheers,
Igor

I particularly like the 8th photo, but these are all pretty neat. I use a D200 quite a lot, but I like my Lensbaby better on my FM2n...that full frame gives a much nicer effect I think. I didn't know they made HP5 as far back as the 70s, I shot Tri-X pretty much excluseively then.

Nice work Helene!

Ooooh, Eleni! The Plastic was already on my wish-list and I was thinking about getting an older film-cam to bend with and I do have already some wonderfully-expired 35mm film in my freezer(for the Holga and the Seagull)....but it's All Color Film!!!

Thanks...now I have something Else to add to my list...hmmm expired HP5....

(love these!)

Thanks Johnny & Tony! Color film can be good as well, I just prefer B&W myself.
Can't wait to print them in a real darkroom!

I really like image #5. Very nice composition.

I did not know that purist = film.

For that matter, I didn't know purists would use a Lensbaby. I thought that purists used only glass plates! ;-)

Nice photos. Thanks for sharing them.
