Inverloch

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…

Mt Erica

i love detail in a photo, and these 2 following photos are full of it. this is why i like b&w, i feel sometimes details can get lost in a colour photograph, colour can be a distraction. Crown Graphic 4×5 Shanghai 100.

Crown Graphic 4×5 and…

Unsensored 12, Large Format Day.

Last weekend was Large Format Day at Collingwood Gallery. i love using my Crown Graphic, and i was keen on seeing a few other large format cameras in use, as they’re a…

weekend adventures.
