Week 45: Street furniture

This week I went out with the Holga loaded with a roll of Fuji Pro400h.  I was short on time and had less then 30mins to take some photos, get some lunch and head back to the office. Thus I though I would challenge my self to get 12 hopefully interesting images not only in…

Week 44: Getting a Sandwich

So for this week I shot a roll of Kodak Portra 400 BW in the Holga.  That’s right Portra but in Black & White a relatively rare discontinued film.  I shot this during a lunchtime walk from the office to get a sandwich, I thought I would document what I saw on the way, they…

Week 42: Foggy

So for this update I was finally back out with the Holga.  I had been neglecting this camera for a while, partly because I needed a change and partly due to dull grey winter weather making it a little less suitable. Anyway I had this camera with me as the day before was the work…

Week 41: Kodak Portra 400VC

So I missed week 40 due to being very very busy. But last week I went out with some fellow film photographers that had met on Twitter.  We went for what ended up being quite a good long walk around London. Some of you may know but recently a lot of Kodak film came back…

Week 39: It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas

Yeah yeah, I know its still November and believe me I’m a stickler for Christmas movies and mince pies are not allowed until December 1st onwards. However Ilford photo ran a little competition to produce a cover for thier Christmas cards shot on Ilford film. Now unfortunately I got ill (man-flu) so completly ran out…

Week 38: The Beach

I have been a bit busy lately so have lost a bit of traction with this blog post.  So time to get back on track.  One of the reasons I am behind is I was lucky enough to have a trip to Florida. It was for an event but I took my camera with me…

Week 37: Analogue on Analogue

This week I shot a roll of expired Kodak Porta 800 in the Yashica Mat 124 G.  Being indoors I used a tripod. I wanted to try and recreate the shots I had seen when people photograph their record collection. it was an interesting experiment as firstly the meter in the Mat 124 only goes…

Week 36: Not for LandLubbers

So this is my first post to introduce my new (old) camera the Yashica Mat 124G.  I took a little walk and shot a roll of Fujifilm Neopan 400cn.  This is a C-41 film. First quick impressions of the camera.  I love it. Oh you want to know some more ok then. It is very…

Week 35: Alpha, Beta, Delta

This week was pretty rainy and dull so I figured I would try a high ISO film in the Holga, namely Ilford Delta 3200.  I also used a red filter, but as per a previous post I don’t think the plastic one makes much difference. I headed to Somerset House in London where they had…

Week 33:Slide in the City

Week 31 & Week 32 got skipped, for a few reasons.  But last week to make the most of the last days of summer, I thought I would try some more slide film namely Provia 100f. The results are not quite as good as last time, I guess because the light was not quite as…

Week 30: A+ for concept, E- for Attainment

So this week I shot a roll of Lomography Redscale. I thought long and hard about what to shoot then it came to me.  I have a Lego astronaut figure so I thought it would be cool to photograph him at London locations but with the redscale it might look like it he was visiting…

Week 29: Gotta have Coffee

This week I shot a roll of Fuji Pro400h in the Holga.  It was a particularly bright day so 400iso was a bit to strong.  It was already loaded from a few days before so I didn’t really have a choice. I decided to try a theme this week and the theme was Coffee.  I…
