I am one of a lucky few to get my hands on these jumpers made by Zorra a.k.a. @emeraldstarfox so me and Hannah had a walk around Shrewsbury and found this graffiti, so we spent a few minutes shooting on film until we woke up a tramp sleeping just a few yards away. He seemed less surprised than us by this encounter but this is a preview from the shoot. I’ll upload more later (I’v been neglecting the blog)
Taken on a Pentax Spotmatic sp2, super takumar smc 50mm f1.4 most likely on kodak ektar 100.
So I finally finished the roll of film that was in my Pentax Spotmatic and went and got it developed!!!
a few nice shots in it but I really need a negative scanner because paying to get the prints and then scanning them in on my filthy dusty scanner is rubbish i just cant get rid of the dust on it grrrr!!!! roll on xmas break so I can take lots of pictures
heres a couple of unedited pics, all from a cheap roll of fuji iso400 in my spotmatic with the brilliant super takumar 50mm f1.4
I like finding old photos so I scanned these pair in on my own scanner (which is pretty poor quality) but at least you can actually see them!
They were taken on the old Pentax Spotmatic 2 (from Manda) which had the Super Takumar 50mm F1.4 lens fitted to it. I was using Ilford fp4+ black and white film which I love in this camera and its only 125 iso so on a really sunny day like this you can still use nice open apertures even though the cameras fastest shutter speed is 1/1000 of a second.
I dont know who these people are but they were just sitting in the middle of chaos at the British Museum. It was so hot and noisy with so many people around but somehow these pair had each found their own quiet spot to sit in.
I also really like candids
Well at long last I had my last day of term at uni yesterday but the bad thing is I started my new term today, which sucks. But at least all the late nights are done with for a few weeks now until they hand out the next bunch of assignments.So….due to all this free time of mine I thought I would explain a couple of old photos of mine.
The lovely woman in these two photographs is Hannah Roper. I took these two photographs on my Pentax Spotmatic 2 35mm film SLR. I had the super takumar 50mm f1.4 lens fitted and both these shots were taken at f1.4 (hence the softness in them) but I really like the mood that this creates in the shots. We were just mooching around the woods looking for good places to take photos and most of my shots were on digital which can be found here
