one of my mates/ fellow photographer has just started a blog, check it out!
a few weeks ago Ryan and i went to check out an abandoned homestead that had burnt down a week or so before.
but before we got to the house, we saw another house, which was closer, so we checked it out first.
it was pretty creepy, it looked as if there had been someone squatting in there. we both felt rather uneasy about it, so didn’t stay too long, but here’s some photos from the Ricoh Gr1s and Ilford FP4.
so i recently acquired a Ricoh GR1s from Japan,i chose this camera cos i wanted something small and light.
it fits in any pocket, and is fairly quick and easy to use but sometimes i wish it wasnt so wide, but 28mm isnt too bad..
these shots were taken on the streets of Melbourne over the last 2 weeks.
Ricoh Gr1s and Fuji Neopan SS 100 film.
this lot was shot with Ilford FP4.
i went for a drive to Loch Sport the other day with some friends, so with cameras packed, we hit the road.
Mamiya RB67 and Kodak Tmax 400
i bought this camera a few weeks ago, and it was in pretty bad shape.
the lens hood doesnt open, or close properly, the magnifying eyepiece is missing and battery terminals for light meter are missing.
despite all that, all mechanical operation appears to be in good working order!
this is the first roll of film i put through it, i was a bit skeptical about the condition of the light seals, but all is good.
Kodak Tri-X 400.
heres some more photos that i developed myself, but i seem to get some mixed results.
i think i need a bit more practice and work on my dev times.
photos shot with Pentax LX with 28mm and 50mm lenses and Tri-X 400 film.
the other day i finally developed my first roll of film, and it was more or less a success!
i shot with Kodak Tri-X 400 and developed with Ilford LC29 at 1+9 dilution, Ilford Rapid Fixer 1+4 and an old bottle of Kodak Photo Flo 200.
i need to work on my film reel loading, as i had a lot of trouble with that, which affected a few of my negatives, but not enough to ruin them.
Mamiya RB67 and Ilford XP2
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.
