om-2

cubistic chamisso

chamissoi had pictured him differently…

shot with my olympus om-2 and the om zuiko 100mm lens on paradies 200 film on one of the first springy days of this year (before winter returned with his puffy snowy fist).

disclaimer: of course chamisso’s bust is in hibernation here. if you are interested in a look under the covers check wikipedia. he sports a quite cool heavy metal haircut.

i’m usually not very much into cars but i could not resist this very nice yellow¬†opel gt 1900. ¬†accidentally two other yellow cars appeared and could be purposely included then.

shot with the olympus om-2 and the om-zuiko 100mm@f4 on paradies 200 film in berlin mitte last weekend (on the same roll of film as the half bike (red))

half bikeseen in friedrichshain, berlin. shot with the olympus om-2 and probably the om zuiko 50mm on paradies 200 film about a year ago. i only had the film developed this week ;)

when ebay gives you lemons, make lemonade

i recently got a nice all-black olympus om-2 film camera from ebay. i was pretty excited to try it because i got all those nice om zuiko or at least om compatible lenses and i never really shot film before. so i put in a roll of (quite old) kodak ektachrome 200 (by courtesy of my girlfriend) and took it out for a short stroll to the neighborhood. the negatives were ready after three days and got scanned and burned on cd, too (at rossmann). that’s what i got in the package i took home.

take that hipstamatic ;)

sorry, was that leaky or lucky?

btw. all pictures got a bit pushed contrast wise… it was really impressive how low contrast can get.

i kind of like the leaky effect but of course you could add that in post quite easily nowadays if you are so inclined. what’s not so easy or at least i don’t know a good way of doing this is the very nice film grain.

what’s more the handling of the om-2 is really really nice. it is solidly built but not too heavy and has a nice metal feeling. and is has the looks !

probably i’ll send this one back and try to get another one.
