ROADBURN 6 x 6 • the home of the riff on vintage photographs

Roadburn was fucking great! Really!

Yeah, I know... you`ve already heard that. But you probably haven't seen the festival through the eyes of an Adox Golf!

To make it short for you people who barely remember the dial-operated telephone:
The Golf is a vintage folding camera from the 1950s and it looks like this:

While the Golf isn`t overly complicated to handle in itself, shooting a festival like Roadburn with it is still a challenge for several reasons, like:
  • Aperture, shutter speed and focus have to be set manually - and the mechanical parts don't glow in the dark like an LED screen.
  • Same goes for advancing to the next frame on the film roll.
  • There are only up to twelve negatives of 6x6 cm per roll, so you can't just machine-gun fire pictures and later pick out your favorite. You need the patience to catch the right moment. Hey dude! Stay there, I've set my focus on 3,5m!
  • All this takes more of the already limited photo pit time than digital shooting.
  • Monitor boxes suck - and that's even more true when you can't just zoom your way around them.
So here are my photos, all taken on Ilford Delta 3200. Some of them are deliberate double exposures (we call that film saving mode).

Personally I'm happy with the outcome. Some pictures are ok, others are really worth the effort - and I sorted out only very few, which is always good...
