Week 0 – Dave Nash Introduction

Hi all. I only joined up for this a couple of days ago when it was mentioned to me by Tim Dobbs. I am always looking for a challenge, and this will be a huge one for me.

The plan at present is to try and stick to one camera, one lens and one film. So I’m going to use my FED4, with it’s 53mm lens with Kentmere 400 film. I’ve only had this camera a couple of weeks and I hope it holds up, we’ll see.

Anyway, I’ll be starting in the new year, hope you like my photos. All CC welcome.

Thanks

Dave

  1. Glad to have you on board Dave! Big fan of Kentmere (and Rollei RPX which is the same or similar these days) myself. And the Industar-61 is a really fine lens! Not sure about the FED though. Looks nice from the top but the film rewind mechanism looks rather painful. 🙂 Looking forward to what you’ll produce.

  2. Hi Dave, I think I would find it very difficult to do this project with just one camera, but that is me in the 2000’s, I used Spotmatics only for a couple of decades. Guess I got tired of the sameness. It will be interesting to see your results.

    • Hi there, Using the one camera is part of the challenge for me, and if I know I can complete the 52 weeks, by using all sorts of cameras, then there is no challenge. I don’t think I will get tired of it, the question is more of will the camera last. I have only had it a couple of weeks, and this weekend is only the second time I have used it, as I have had to get it fixed. If it does fail, I do have a couple of other options to fall back on, but fingers crossed.

      • Good luck with that. I think I am probably looking for less rather than more challenge. I rather like the comfort of being part of a community of like minded photographers. And being part of it more in the sense of sitting around beers or cups of tea in comfy chairs rather than slogging up a mountain side in the rain and fog. Even so, if I do complete 2016 it will have been a challenge just to fit it into my schedule, and to learn (slowly it seems) how to take better photos.
