An accidental panorama

A Birthday Panorama

12 exposures, some of them multiples in the space of about 9 or so…

 

 

 

 

So kids, this is what happens when you don’t pay attention to your camera settings!

It was a friend’s birthday last week, so I thought that I’d take the Holga along, of course I’d got the single frame setting on the thing wrong and it was showing me numbers for 16 frames per roll. I had the 12 frame per roll mask in place. Oops…

Still, I got it developed, asked the lab not to cut the roll for me, so as well as their attempts at getting individual frames (see below…) I could also put it on the flat bed scanner at home and get it in its entirety! The whole panorama scanned direct from the negative at 2400 dpi was just over 60,000 (yes, that’s right, 60,000!) pixels wide. So, not a small file… You can click here to view a version on Flickr that’s roughly 30 times smaller than that and still not viewable all at once on a normal monitor…

All good fun though 🙂

  • Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new
    to everything. Do you have any suggestions for beginner blog writers?

    I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    • Hi, sorry if my filters ate your comment! They can be a little interesting at times…
      You know I’m still pretty new to this as well and I’m still trying to find my way through it all. I’m not a great writer, I personally believe I’m better at taking pictures, so I guess the only advice I can give is just dive in and give it a go. I tend to write my stream of consciousness down, leave it for half an hour then re-read it and edit it to say what I meant it to in the first place. Other than that, it’s really just a case of go, create, and see what you can do!
