IR Fern taken with a Holga

From my walk tonight, this was the only shot on the entire roll of $10 that would even scan. I was in the deep woods and thought 4 seconds would be enough exposure. I should have done 2 stops higher at 16 seconds. Most negatives were so thin I got nothing.


This one has lots of dust but I kind of like it

    How frustrating, but it's only film, right? This is very beautiful, I hope you stick with it.

    I love the pop of the bright green fern (I know it's b&w, but the gorgeous tones convey color to me) against the dark background. I think the vignetting is nice too.

    Dust and all, I like it too. I've always admired folks who do things that can't be done...progress!

    Lucky guy: Such a great shot for only $10.

    I have been wasting a lot more film for decades, just to see that even with good (technically) negatives nothing worthwile turned out.

    I'd say that shot made the whole trip worthwhile. Like the inky blackness behind the tree & fern.

    oh now this is a very well found one. I like much.

    Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Win-Win Darkroom Support, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

    Excellent Photograph, certainly worth much more than the investment of $10.00 in my opinion.
