Central London Photographed at Night with Fujichrome Provia 100

So at the end of last week I was in London again when it was really cold! -4C is not the coldest I have photographed in (which is -18 degrees) but it was cold enough when I didn't have my full winter clothing on! So I only shot one roll this time, but instead of using Black and white film, this time I chose colour slide film; Fujichrome Provia 100 to be exact. "You used slide film for nighttime

A quick trip out to the woods with Kodak Tri-X 400

Like most modern families who spend all week at work or school, the weekends are a time of either catching up with everything in readiness for the following week, such as laundry, ironing, cleaning, car repairs, house repairs and so on, or they involve trying to get at least some family time in before the wheel starts all over again like taking the kids swimming and to the park maybe, with the bare essentials of the ironing and cleaning

Lomography Lady Grey 400 film – my first attempt with it.

Disclaimer : this post is not serious photography! It's just a general blog article provided for information with some demo images. So recently, by a stroke of sheer good fortune, I happened to visit a UK medical store called Boots, where they still stock some limited film stocks, albeit at a very high cost compared to online retailers. I was just looking to see what they had with no intentions of buying, and to my surprise I saw some

  • Kodak Ektachrome 120 medium format

Kodak Ektachrome in Medium Format 120 by April 2019?

It's an exciting time to be a film photographer! After sitting through the last 15 years or so feeling like it was gradually fading away, the last couple of years especially have seen a very notable rise in enthusiasm for film as a photographic medium. Kodak are largely thanks to a big commercial buzz around film at the moment because of their apparent enthusiasm to continue to invest in new film emulsions, or simply brining back previously existing ones.

Central London Photographed with Kodak TMAX 100

So I added to my London Series after another trip to the capital of the UK. It was fairly cold this time at about only 1 degree C, and despite being wrapped up fairly well, the hand suffered holding the Hasselblad. Still, at least I had my new mini Manfrotto tripod ( Manfrotto PIXI EVO 2-Section Mini Tripod) with me this time which helped me keep the camera fairly stable though annoyingly I forgot my cable release! So there was

Photographing horses with Fujichrome Provia 100 and my Hasselblad

So the other day, shortly after New Years Day, after 10 days of relative over-indulgence and general slobery, the wife and I decided it was time to get us all out in the winter air for a bit of a walk in the nearby know, blow the cobwebs off a bit. Naturally, being a photographer, I immediately assessed the light outside and made a film choice selection followed by camera selection. It was bright and sunny (albeit cold),

Central London photographed using Kodak Tri-X 400 film

I am a frequent traveler to London and in more recent times I find that I do not have the time that I used to for landscape photography. Family life and work life make that a difficult endeavor at the moment. So I have been trying to find an alternative subject for my photography that I can fit in around my busy lifestyle. Street Photography was an obvious choice but I must confess I have (or generally had, though

Sunsets & Rainbows with Kodak Ektachrome

My daughter and I recently went for a walk nearby in the fields that are located near to out house. It was a December mid-afternoon here in the UK, meaning the light was getting low in the sky at 14:30, and made a wonderful sight. So I loaded my Nikon F5 with some of the new Kodak Ektachrome with my 105mm f2.5 AI lens which I was yet to try out after buying it a few weeks ago. It

Photographing Anchor Church by the River Trent – near Ingleby

So I recently managed to get out and about for a bit of Father & Son photography along the River Trent near the village of Ingleby and the historic "Anchor Church" which is an old set of caves right next to the river, accessible only by a not very well known public foothpath. " Anchor Church Caves are beside the Old River Trent; there is a public footpath at the bottom of the crag (or at the top when

Kodak Ektachrome Slide Film is back!

Normal photographers will likely not even notice this news, and neither will the average man on the street who has no interest in photography. But for us film photographers, this is massive news. The iconic film called Kodak Ektachrome is back. It's been a few years in the making, and Kodak have been teasing us about for it for a while, but it is now being shipped to regular photography stores all over the world. I've just ordered 5 rolls
