2017, Roll 12 – Roger Remjet!

I took part in the @EMULSIVEsanta gift exchange last year and was paired with a very generous guy in the States. Among the bundle of gifts that he sent over, were 4 hand-rolled canisters of Fuji Eterna 160 tungsten corrected cinefilm.

2017, Roll 12 – Photographing Mikey’s Citroën

A couple of Sundays ago, I was lucky enough to be invited by Iain to take pictures of our mutual friend Mikey‘s classic Citroën DS. Mikey takes his beautiful car out once a month or so through the winter and the plan was for us to make some pictures of it in darkness, lit by LED streetlights…

Week 2 -Bak Þitt Er Sem Rennibraut

As I described in my first 52 Rolls post of 2017, I plan to slow things down a little this year. After last year’s excesses, I hope that by leaving time between the taking of the picture and choosing what to show, I’ll not be tempted into posting the pictures that might have been difficult or…

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 49 – Neopan Night

After my trip with Iain to Poland a couple of weeks ago, we were keen to get back to doing what we do, shooting carscapes and infrastructure, usually by night. Since 52Rolls has led to film photography taking over my life, I now take my Yashica along on these ‘fishing’ trips and shoot (lovely, lovely)…

Week 46 – Bristolian Neopan

Last weekend I took Gosia to Bristol for her birthday. I’d got to tickets to see her favourite artist Regina Spektor perform on Saturday night at the Colston Hall. We took a slow walk around the city before the show and I shot through a roll of Ilford FP4+ for the party, but I’ll post that…

Roll 9-10/52 Japan, the great escape part 5

Today I’m sharing 2 rolls instead of 1, for two reasons: Aforementioned image overlap, and a useful visual comparison; since these were shot in the same location, at the same time, in the same conditions. Before I continue with the comparison, some info on where we were that day. Staying in Kyoto, we hired bikes…

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 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 37 Continued: Skeg Vegas

I live about as far away from the sea as is possible on our little island. Visiting the sea remains a very special event and once there, I am endlessly fascinated by the coastline and the sea itself. If I lived there, I’d never run out of things to photograph, whether it’s the wild coastline…

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…
