so i have really slacked off lately, and only just started scanning some more film today from my trip, STILL have a few rolls to be developed…
but on a positive note, i have started developing my own C-41, using a Jobo CPE2 and Jobo press kit. it was a lot easier than i first thought.
i am actually quite amazed at how sharp these photos are. these Mamiya lenses, 50mm f4 C and 90mm f3.8 are actually amazing.

A few weeks ago i went on a solo roadtrip.
i packed a few cameras, a bag of clothes, sleeping bag and set off.
first stop was the Great Ocean Road. It has been a drive i have wanted to do for a long time, so it was good to finally get it done!

i bought some Velvia 50 in 120 format a little while ago. im not really big on shooting colour normally, but i thought id give the velvia a go based on the amazingly vibrant colours i saw and heard about, i was not disappointed! i got my positives [negatives?] back today from the lab in Melbourne, and wow. im in love!
now i just need to work out how im going to afford to buy shitloads of slide films for 4×5..
Mamiya RB67 and Fuji Velvia 50.
a few weeks ago i went for a drive with a friend to Wilsons Prom to shoot some photos and to have a look around.
the weather wasn’t the greatest, especially since i also used some Fuji Velvia 50 film, i was hoping for some sunshine and blue skies.
overall it was a good day, got a heap of good photo’s i’m happy with. hopefully i can get down there again soon with my newest addition to my camera collection, a Crown Graphic 4×5.
i have been shooting a lot of medium format lately, more than 35mm, and i love it.
i smashed through 2 rolls of Tri-X in about a week, had a go at developing it myself.
wasnt too sure how i’d go loading the 120, considering how much i have been struggling with the 35mm, but after a few youtube videos, i was ready to go, and i somehow managed to have no issues each time.
im getting mixed messages about pre-soaking 120, some say yes, some no. so i didnt bother, and didnt see any adverse affects. what are peoples thoughts?
i reused the developer for the second roll, it was quite reddish after the first roll, and added approx 10% to the developing time.
both rolls were a success! really happy.
i also bought a new scanner. Epson Photo V600, bought it as a refurbed unit from the Epson website, works well! only cost about $250 too!

went for a drive up into the hills the other day, visited the Walhalla Cemetery and then went across to Mushroom Rocks near Mt Erica.
it was incredibly misty up there which was amazing.
I couldn't surrender, try as they might, to an expectation, a label, or a routine. Constantly I'd struggle, trying to fit in a preconceived mold but I'd only end up hurting myself in the process, I was either too big, too small, or the wrong 'shape' of thinking!
