Notre Dame, Paris

I’ve visited Notre Dame Cathedral three times. The first time I was about 15 years old, and living in a children’s home. We’d been taken on holiday as a group and spent a week in a children’s home in France, a few days at a campsite, and a few days skiing in Switzerland. I remember […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

What is Flash Sync Speed?

I’m going to show you what flash sync speed is with a little experiment using my Fuji XT2. You can try an experiment like this with any digital camera and it will give you an idea about what type of manual shutter your camera uses, what the sync speed is, and how far you can […]

Early Spring Beach

A Photographic Diary, March 2019 These images were taken using an iPhone 8+, and a Fujifilm XT-2 with a cheap Meike wide angle lens. I cycled from Sandbanks in Poole to Bournemouth Pier. They’re mainly unedited; I like to get a good shot in camera and so my usual editing usually consists of cropping and […]
