Kodak E100 slide film is great at capturing the rather religious looking light that shone in my garden on this day in August.
During the summer we did manage to meet up with our family – very carefully with an eye on the virus and attention to social distancing. The sun came out a couple of days and so I thought I’d try out the new Kodak E100 slide film. Processing slides at home is hard – I use the Bellini E6 kit and but it from Nik and Trick in Folkstone. You have to screw up your courage before embarking on the processing – but I’m happy with the results – at least as a first go.
This is my Olympus Pen EE camera. It’s a great little camera which has an automatic exposure control and low light warning – which work off the power generated by its built in light sensitive cell and does not need a battery. This is a half frame camera – which means it takes images on 35mm film which are half the usual size. With this camera you get 48 images from a 24 shot film – or even a few more.
I bought this camera on ebay from a seller in the Netherlands – in fact in the back of the camera is a label for a camera shop in Amersfoort. A beautiful town!
Anyway – here are the pictures which I tool during May and June 2020 while we were locked down and the weather was beautiful. Shot on Fujicolor 200 and processed in the sink.
TheWorthing bus rally 2019 was a splendid. Worthing always looks lovely, but when you add antique buses and a big wheel the day promises to be perfect. On the day, however, it was overcast – and I was planning to take some trichromic pictures of the buses and the wheel. Unfortunately I used a new (to me) Olympus OM 30 for the trichromic which had a massive light leak. Naturally I only discovered the leak when I emerged from the dark room.
Here is a nice picture of Kitty and Winifred standing by the Worthing Big Wheel on Bus Day – part of the Worthing Lions Festival 2019
Back in April 2019 we were asked to help with a promotion for the excellent Here and Now magazine – a monthly free magazine for Worthing – check out the photo of the Editor, Frances, inside the front page – it’s one of mine!
Here are some pictures taken on new year’s day 2019. It’s the Sompting Village Morris dancers bringing in the new year at the Richard Cobden here in sunny Worthing.
The autumn season brings some dramatic light, nice shadows, golden hour colours – and a huge tanker topping up the sea with pure sussex water, a giant dog and a trip to London.
Here are some photos I took on the day of Worthing Pride – we didn’t get into the Pride gig but there were definitely colourful things going on in town. Even the car park looked excited.
Quote of the day:
“Is this the queue for pride?”
“No – it’s just a queue”
These photos hand processed from Kodak ColorPlus 200 – very cheerful.
Here’s a sample…
These photos were taken using the trichrome technique: each is made up of three black & white images shot through a primary colour filter. Red, Green and Blue. Then combined to make a colour image. These are my first attempts – I love the colour fringes when the camera moves between shots, or the ghostly images of people and cars that move between colour changes.
