recently i have picked up a few new cameras.
first was a Pentax 645 then came a Olympus XA2 ( and i think i have just bought a 6×17 MF camera… )
i have a few photos from both of those cameras, as well as some from my Hasselblad and Pentax LX.
i am very happy both!
i saw someones photo of cliffs and rock formations at Inverloch, and wondered why i hadnt been there before, since big cliffs and rocks are very much my thing.
i got pretty excited by what i saw, shot a bunch of photos, but had a few issues with development.
i nearly always have issues when loading 4×5 sheets onto my MOD54 holder, i think i need a bigger changing bag, as when loading six sheets there is always 1 or 2 sheets stuck together.
however not all was lost, and only the corners were affected. Shanghai film is also quite soft and scratches easily.

i spent a few days in Brisbane fro a mates wedding. a managed to actually shoot a few rolls of film, and also managed to stuff one up while developing..
i have another roll of colour to scan yet, but heres a few shots for starters..
Leica M6 TTL Kodak Tmax 100
im a bit behind on my scanning, and have a few rolls to go through and post about, but just a bit lazy really..
but here’s some Polaroids that i took yesterday on my recently acquired polaroid back for my 4×5.
theres a few odd colour shifts, and i think thats due to the film be a few years old, and i froze it once, before i was told that is a no-no..
still happy though, just hope the films i shot work out well too!
last week we had some nice weather. so i headed off to the beach to enjoy the sun, not to swim, but to photograph, of course!
i still have a few sheets of film to develop, 4 sheets of 4×5 Velvia 50, and one more b&w Tmax. i’ll get around to it eventually…
but for now, here’s a few shots.
Crown Graphic 4×5 and Shanghai 100 4×5 developed in Agfa Rodinal.
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 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!
