#SolarFilmParty – the Big Reveal!

Six months ago, I wrote here and over on Emulsive about starting a couple of solargraphs on the summer solstice. These beer cans with holes in, containing a sheet of photo-paper, would record the path of the sun as it crossed the sky from its highest pass on the 21st of June, to its lowest on […]

Sunrise, Sunset. 2016 on Film

I’ll be writing up my 52 Rolls summary in the next week or so, but suffice to say that shooting so much film through 2016 has been a complete game-changer. When I read about the project (on Emulsive) in Poland the week before last New Year, I couldn’t have imagined that it would have become […]

Film Wasting in Newcastle

Another post from my 52 Rolls project – shooting film 52 weeks a year… Two rolls for the price of one in this post (numbers 14 and 15 of the year already) but shot over the course of a couple of days and on a single trip, so I though I’d combine them.

Killone Abbey

I stumbled across Killone Abbey on GoogleMaps recently when planning some other excursion. Being just a few miles from home, Emily and I nipped over last Sunday afternoon and took a wander through the conker trees and cattle, accompanied by a roll of Kodak Tri-X that needed using up…

All About ‘All About Saul Leiter’

A while back, I made a bit of noise on Emulsive and via an email to the Sunny 16 Podcast about photographers talking more about photographs, and less about gear. Leading by example, I tried my hand at a book review and tried writing about one of my favourite photographer’s work. Well, here we are […]
