FILM: Kodak Ektar August 2016

Posted by on Jul 18, 2017 | No Comments

Another film installment, this time some Kodak Ektar from August 2016. Most of these images were taken up the coast from Sydney, on a trip away as a reward for submitting my PhD thesis. This road trip took us up past Newcastle to Smith’s Lake and Forster and then on the way back we stopped past Nelson Bay and Port Stephens.

The Fujifilm Natura Classica did the heavy lifting for this roll, it is a delightful little camera; small, light with reasonably good focus speed and exposure accuracy.

Film: Panoramic Ektar December 2015 + Arista February 2017

Another few rolls of film to share.

First up is another roll of film taken in December 2015 whilst in Germany and Austria. The Fujifilm TX-1 did the heavy lifting on that trip and there is still more rolls of film to come. These images were captured on Kodak Ektar 100 at the Neuschwanstein Castle and around Salzberg. There should still be one more roll of Ektar from this trip, so keep your eyes peeled.

As a bonus, here are a few frames of Arista EDU Ultra 400 taken on the Hasselblad 503CX in February this year. This is my first roll of this film, but it didn’t disappoint.

Autumn Colours, April 2017

Posted by on May 12, 2017 | No Comments

With the Easter and ANZAC day holidays coming very close together this year I was able to get away a few times to hunt some of the Autumn colours in the Blue Mountains and the Southern Highlands. This year it felt as if the colours were late, but the timing worked out well for me. Here are some images from three expeditions.

First up was a trip on a sunny day out to Artemis Winery in the Southern Highlands. A lazy lunch among the red and yellow vines followed by a spectacular sunset sky.

The next day I was up in the Blue Mountains with some family, once again a trip chasing colour, and another day on the road. Not as much colour at Wentworth Falls, but further up at Blackheath we were treated to lots of reds and oranges.

Finally, on ANZAC day we had a late start and a long day, this time the target was Mount Wilson, stopping along the way to visit the Hargrave Lookout and taking the car off the tarmac and onto the gravel.

Film: Panoramic Natura December 2015

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017 | No Comments

Another travel film. This time taken with my Fujifilm TX-1 (Xpan) from my trip to Munich back in December 2015. Fujifilm Natura 1600 is a wonderful film, but I suspect I pushed it a bit too far on this occasion.

Since getting this camera I have been enamoured with shooting panoramic images, and have found it to be a strangely satisfying camera to use.

More film, this time Kodak Ektar 100 taken with Hasselblad 503CX.

First there is a roll from a few outings out of Sydney from August 2015. These is something nice about grabbing some gear and going for a drive.

As I indicated, there are a few film posts to come as I get on top of the backlog. Today I am sharing some images taken with the Fujifilm Klasse W in Goteborg, and London. There may be a few Sydney shots mixed in though.

First up is some ACROS from Goteborg and the surrounding archipelago.
