Ageing Photos on Plaster

If you want a step-by-step on transferring images to plaster see this post. I decided to experiment by transferring some images onto plaster: I printed the images using a laser printer, coated them with acrylic gel, and transferred them onto a plaster surface. I kept them outside on a windowsill during the summer, and my plan was that they would degrade when exposed to the … Continue reading Ageing Photos on Plaster

Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire

It was visiting Salisbury that originally convinced me that I could live without London; it really is a beautiful place. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve visited the cathedral over the years. Sometimes I’m there as a tourist to take photos, see the Magna Carta, eat in the cafe which spills out into the cloisters or buy trinkets in the shop, other … Continue reading Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire

Highgate Cemetery, London

Highgate Cemetery website If you’re visiting London and you want to escape into a cool, green space while learning something interesting and being somewhere a bit different, Highgate Cemetery is the place to go. I’ve been twice so far. The first time it was a beautiful sunny day; in photography terms this meant a lot of contrast to deal with. The second time it was … Continue reading Highgate Cemetery, London

Flowers on Fuji Colour Film

A Photographic Subject to Explore These images were taken with a Canon EOS 300 using Fuji colour film at Kingston Lacy NT in Wimborne, late summer 2018. This gallery contains a mix of film scans and photo scans and so the quality is variable and you can see there are some white lines and haze in some of the images which I think are the … Continue reading Flowers on Fuji Colour Film

Slide Film from London, 2001

These were taken on a Canon EOS 300 in about 2001, on cheap Boots Colour Slide film. They were scanned quite a long time ago on an Epson flatbed scanner. They scanned quite dark, but I’m guessing slide film would do that because they were meant to be backlit. These images represent some of my very early work, when I was just starting to get … Continue reading Slide Film from London, 2001

Film Photography: Instant Film

I feel that something fundamental goes missing from my experience of photography when I find myself shooting exclusively in digital. As soon as I realised that, I set up a temporary darkroom at home. I started shooting and developing a lot of film, printing from negatives and being a lot more experimental. But one thing I didn’t do was use much instant film. Instant Film A … Continue reading Film Photography: Instant Film

Film Photography: My Story So Far

When I started photography digital photography was not wide-spread. My first proper camera was a Canon EOS 300. (No, not a 300D, just a 300). Apart from my house, my car and my wedding dress, it was the most expensive thing I’d ever bought. It wasn’t really very good; I think you can pick them up on eBay now for less than £10. As well … Continue reading Film Photography: My Story So Far

A Roll of Fuji Colour Film, November 2018

Most of these images were taken in November 2018. They were shot on an old Canon AE-1 that I picked up on eBay. I think they were all shot using the 50mm prime lens that came with the camera. The film is Fujicolor C200 and I sent the film away for processing and printing as in my opinion, life is too short to process colour … Continue reading A Roll of Fuji Colour Film, November 2018
