Long Exposure Testing

Back to Long Exposure testing with my trusty Gnome Pixie Box camera.
Used a lighter grade welding glass this time (grade 3) as the exposures before were way too long, 30 mins in bright summer sun! With the G3 Glass and using Fomapan 100 film the shot was taken with around 15 mins of exposure and it was a gloomy day in the woods. The negative came out really light so it could have done with another 5-10 minutes really but nonetheless with a bit of Post Production the image popped right out. We are getting somewhere now, with a nice bright day I could probably get this down to 5 minutes or so.

A lot of faffing around but hopefully you’ll agree that it was worth it!

    1. Thank you!
      There is a certain amount of softness to the lens on this camera which is emphasised by the long exposure time. I really enjoy going back to basics with this little beauty, no focus, no f-stops just point shoot and wait 🙂
