The Canon MC is a great little camera which I find really portable – and has a killer flash gun you can attach to it. This one has never let me down.
These photos are on Ilford HP5 Plus.
This summer we took our old van and our middle aged dogs on a road trip to meet up with my son and his partner – and to meet her folks.
Our van likes to do about 100 miles a day – so a return trip from Worthing to Beamish took us 10 days. The weather was pretty wet, but we weren’t downhearted and the van behaved faultlessly – the van, Hildegarde, has now gone off for her annual make over so while she is away having her welds welded we can look at these pictures and make plans for next year.
All the photos were shot using an Olympus OM30 and fuji colour negative film – all developed at home in the sink!
As well as visiting Beamish open air museum we also visited the wonderful Yorkshire sculpture park.
Whilst digging through my hard drive today I came across some images of the Berlin wall I took last year during a visit with my daughter. There are some lovely colourful images in this set – here is a sample.
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…
In May 2018 my daughter Kitty and I made a trip to Berlin. This was to fulfil a very old ambition of mine to visit the Neues Museum and see the ancient and most beautiful bust of Queen Nefertiti – a 5,000 year old marvel.
Here are the pictures I took during our trip
The Brandenberg Gate and Unter den Linden
The Holocaust Memorial
A trip to Wannsee
For the last three years I have presented my photography at the Worthing Artists Open Houses event – and I do this by producing education film strips.
My first example was in black and white and grungey! You can find it on youtube here.
This year’s filmstrip was called “Look At Life” in honour of the legendary Rank film series of the same name – for those of you who didn’t make to our open house this gallery includes all the images featured in the film strip. You can make up your own commentary for now while I continue working in the script.
Here are my second set of trichromic photographs. I noticed in my previous set a lot of colour fringing where the black and white images didn’t quite line up. This was due to the camera moving when I changed the colour filter, and the fact that I was in zoom lens which zoomed in or out slightly while I was changing the filter. So this time I used a fixed lens and a lovely Olympus OM30 camera – much more solid results.
You can’t help but notice the people appear in different colours. They really bring out the time effects these images can produce!
