Week 5 / 52 rolls.net

Week 5 has me still playing with the Yashica Mat. I’m having a tuff time with compositions, as  you can see on some with the horizon line. It takes getting used to, but i’m getting there… Once again I used Ilford HP5 400. I am really enjoying this format, and the Yashica Mat. The last…

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…

210mm Schneider and Impossible

I finally took a few shots with a Scheider 210mm lens I bought off a friend a while back.  I just love the shallow DOF, and its a longer lens than the few stock lenses I have for my Speed Graphics. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring a loupe, so some of the shots weren’t so…

BTW – hers is available from the Film Photography Project store. We…

Week 2 – Cheung Chau

22/52 Off to the Cowboy Hall of Fame

We have a small group of photographers in my town, largely sharing images on a private Facebook page.  We photographers are largely lone wolves.  I finally cobbled together a “meet-up” for acquaintance outside of cyber-space.  We had a wonderful time, shared some Lightroom tips, had some pizza and drinks.  Lisa Greany Raiola told of her pending…

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…
