52 Rolls Week 16:52

It’s getting a little political in here, as we review the best of 3 rolls from the Earth Day March for Science.  As I scientist I was there to defend science, so that’s my perspective.  We need more science not less! The Marchers Remember that Louis Pasteur was not trying to preserve milk.  He was…

52 Rolls Week 11:52

Colorado is quickly becoming know for Craft Beers.  There are almost too many breweries.  I just visited a new one yesterday.  But We’ve also discovered another Beer Festival:  Hops and Handrails: Over 65 Breweries and impossible to ample them all.  But we did our best.  Just a few of our favorites: I particularly liked the…

Sapphire coast

A few hundred kilometers south along the coast the ocean gets a little icier with deep cold currents from Antarctica, and along with golden rocks and beaches, the colour of the sea changes to a beautiful sapphire green. Sitting between Bermagui and Tathra, lies the Mimosa Rocks National Park named after a vessel that was…

Week 52 – Carl Zeiss Jena Flextogon 35mm f2.4

Just before Christmas I picked up a  Carl Zeiss Jena Flektogon 35mm f2.4 in M42 mount which I had heard very good reports about. I have a few old M42 mount cameras and decided to test it with my trusty Praktica MTL 5B and some expired Kodak Colorplus. It was a pretty cold day but clear skies…

Week 49 — Pushing HP5 in the Fog ….

We have had quite a few foggy days here in Wales so I decided to shoot a roll of HP5 at 1600 with the hope of accentuating the fog with the extra grain and contrast of pushing the film. I was quite pleased with the results, I really do like the look of HP5 when…

Week 48 – 15 years Expired ….

As I have said in a previous post I have a lot of expired Slide film stored in my fridge with the intention to cross-process it from time to time. This roll of Fuji Sensia 400 expired back in 2002, I am not sure how most of the rolls were stored which is why I am cross processing…

Week 46 – Tweaking my Olympus 35RC

I have had my Olympus 35RC for quite a while but have been struggling to nail any focus when shooting wide open probably due to the very dim viewfinder patch. It was quite dim when I got the camera but my last couple of rolls have had a load of out of focus frames on…
