For the last year I have been shooting a lot of personal video clips. Rather than letting them sit on a drive never to be viewed I spent some time carefully choosing the footage that I wish my Mum could of been part of.
Some images from the 35mm Film Project:
Some images from my Astro Photography project. I have always been interested in space and find it astonishing to think that in some of the image I have taken that the light producing them has taken millions of years to get here.
We would like to wish all of our followers and customers a very Merry Christmas. Here is a short Christmas Jingle we made for you to express our thanks. Have a great one!
Recently I have been wanting to get back to the real basics of photography. It is so easy to take a shot, view, recompose, take it again.. but back when I started out this was impossible. You had to get the shot or loose it forever. I think digital makes people become a bit lazy so I dusted down my 35mm film cameras, stocked up on some Kodak TRI-X400 film and off I shot. Today I got my first roll back. It is lovely to receive them back in the post with the excitement of wondering what I got!
Shooting the first roll of film was fully manual, using an 85mm f1.2 lens wide open! Focusing this beast manually was hard work and yes, I missed a few shots but considering how shallow the depth of field is at f1.2 I am more than happy. My next roll is being shot on a Canon EOS 1V and whilst still on manual mode I am using the 45 point AF this time round.
Anyway.. here are a few shots from my first roll of film for about 12 years! All of these shots are straight scans, no cropping or adjustments made. Can’t wait to shoot my next roll of 35mm :)
Hey folks, just a little update as I know it has been a long time since the last one. The last few months have been crazy with work flooding in. The best bit is I have loved every minute of it with my work taking a sudden change of direction.
As always this blog is here mainly for my personal work but I have included some of my favorite images from the last few months. Exciting times :D
