i have some old cameras too, to many actually. i just work with the digital eos most of the time, because films and batteries are too expensive for me at the moment. i think it's a great concept, something new for me. how does the swap work? i'd like to try one with my boyfriend
Well, you just shoot the film, then give it to someone else to shoot! Then process it as normal!
Some say you should over/underexpose the first/second exposures, but when I spoke to a very experienced photographer he said when he double exposes (which is what film swapping is) he exposes as he normally would, not over or under for the first or second time.
So basically, just shoot a roll of film as you would normally, then hand it to your bf and let him shoot it, then process... et voila! Your first film swap is complete!
Aphex Twin is my favourite musical artist. I met him!
Well, Richard D James album is a good place to start- very accessible, but still a nice mix of melody and rhythm.
But most people on the electronic music messageboard choose I Care Because You Do as their fave AFX album and I do too. It may take a little while to fully appreciate, but when you do grasp its beauty... PFTOO! amazing. The first track, Acrid Avid Jam Shred, is my fave.
Druqks is a technical masterpiece as well. That was his last full album to date. Some electronic music, fast and frenetic, some experimental stuff and some beautiful piano tracks. Nannou 2, the last track is my fave.
