One Year / Twelve Cameras – Horizon Kompakt (August)

These updates are coming a little late, but for August, I spent my time with my Horizon Kompakt camera. I bought her off of eBay one year as a birthday present to myself, which was an awesome idea because it’s a really fun camera.

The Horizon shoots all panoramic images, but thanks to the slow-moving shutter, there’s opportunity for some slit-scan style fun. I only tried to do it a few times, but I think it’s something I’ll come back to.

Sashiere organized a day trip out to Writing on Stone National Park, followed by a jaunt to Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump for an Albertan archaeology day. So fun!

I used some fairly expired film and cross-processed it, which didn’t yeild the results it should have. I usually only use Sensia 100 for that, but I wanted to try something different. In the end, I just did a black & white conversion on most of the frames, which led to a sort of lunar landscape feel.

Luckily, I did the rest of the day in my usual Sensia 100, so all was cross-process beauty.

Honestly, I think August has been one of my most successful months so far in this project. I absolutely love my Horizon camera and I can’t wait to try more slit-scan style photos. I think the one of my feet above is one of my most favourite photos from this year.
