Film: 120 and 35mm

Posted by on Jul 22, 2014 | No Comments

Another week has slipped past, but I will not disappoint and prove that it is better late than never with a duo of film sets to share.

First up is a set taken way back in April with my Leica M3 with Fujifilm Neopan ACROS. This set was so beautiful but at the same time scanned with so much dust that it took me ages to clean it up to share.

The second set was shot with my Hasselblad, a wonderful camera, one that slows you down to shoot carefully. The film of choice was Kodak Ektar 100.

Observatory, food and Sunrise

Posted by on Jul 12, 2014 | No Comments

I thought I would just quickly put up a quick post with some photos that I have yet to share. First up was another cold and windy trip up to the Blue Mountains where the elements conspired to keep us from taking any photos, but after dinner we headed down the mountain and were lured by the clearing sky and the new moon to take on the twisty roads to head out to Crago Observatory. Here we were rewarded with the opportunity to make up for a frustrating day with some clear night skies perfect for some astro. The Nikon D700 and the fisheye pairing of the Zenitar 16mm f/2.8 and the Tokina A-TX DX 10-17mm did the duties. Although I was very tempted to set up the Hasselblad for an extended exposure I did not.

Another recent photographic opportunity was a visit to Sydney’s Bishop Sessa restaurant, where I indulged in some quick snaps of my meal. If you have the time it is worth a visit as the food is great.

Finally, fresh off the press is this weekends attempt at catching the sunrise. A return to McMahon’s Pool, this time with my baby Nikon D60 doing the duties with the Nikkor AF-S 18-55mm and Voigtlander Color Skopar 20mm f/3.5.

Another month has flown by and it has been another month tucked behind the desk punctuated with brief escapes to photograph. With the cold weather settling in, it has been increasingly hard to go and take photos, especially in the mornings. Nonetheless I have kept at it, here is some work taken day to day as part of my attempt to stay on track with my 365 Project. Click through to explore the whole set

More Film and Some Digital

Posted by on Jun 24, 2014 | No Comments

It has been a few weeks since my last update, many apologies but life has finally caught up and kept me away. However, I have found a brief respite to post this.

First up, here is another film treat, this roll of ACROS 100 was taken with my rebuilt Olympus  µ[mju:] II as a test roll to ensure that my previous light leak problems have been rectified. Unlike the norm this roll was scanned on an Epson V700.

I also have some digital photos to share. First up, some photos captured around Sydney with my Nikon J1.

Followed by some trickery with the D700, making the most of an unplanned outing.

Film, Food and Vivid

Posted by on Jun 8, 2014 | No Comments

In order to attempt to make up for the recent lack of photos I have a bit of a treat this week. Be warned, this will be an image heavy post with not one, not two, but three sets to share.

First off is a set of film taken primarily back in April, some Kodak Ektar taken with my Nikon F80.

Then there are some photos from yesterdays visit to the Prymont Farmers Market and the subsequent roaming through the CBD. I do highly recommend the markets as there is always to many good places to eat, and to treat yourself with some fresh and different produce. The duties were handed to the Pentax K-01 for the day, matched with the Pentax 40mm f/2.8 XS and my Tamron SP 17mm f/3.5.

Finally, there are some photos from this years Vivid Sydney display. As usual I have been keeping these back to share altogether, however this year I simply was not in that much of a mood to deal with the crowds so there are not many images, and some of them will be a bit off the beaten track.

It seems like this year really is flying away from me, with yet another month disappearing behind us. It feels like I have not managed much this month, but as usual there are pictures to look back on a show what I did do.

As always click through for larger and to explore the set.
