Olympus Trip 35 – Part 2

As a follow-up to my previous video, in this edition I explain my attempts to restore an Olympus Trip 35. This is in terms of cosmetic appearance as well as in terms of its operation. I try to follow a superb video to get the aperture blades to work properly. Later I choose to clean, re-skin and paint my newer purchase. I highly recommend Milly’s Cameras for any of your camera repair requirements.

Olympus Trip 35 – Part 1

Another Olympus? Yes, but it’s a very good one. In this video, I talk about my 1968 Olympus Trip 35. My third Trip 35 and the best one yet. The story is a little complicated to cover in just one video and so I will add part 2, as soon as it is ready. In this part, I go through the camera’s operation and a little history behind it. Over 10,000,000 of these were sold between 1967 and 1984. Due to some nice little features and a pin-sharp lens, they are still popular today. I hope to restore mine and perhaps re-cover it as well, so look out for that next time.

Walk Toward the Light

The musician Paul Weller once said that “the space between the notes was as important as the notes themselves”. I think the same can be applied to photography. In my image, Walk Toward the Light, there is a considerable amount of blank space; a dark shadow that is completely black and shows no details. This was a deliberate choice and hopefully, it helped convey a sense of loneliness. Despite already shooting in low light, I chose to under-expose slightly to ensure that the shadows became completely black. Hopefully, it worked and that it’s an image you like.
