I should mentioned that these films recently have been push processed; I extended the development time. The colours tend to be a bit more punchy. Here another visit to our friend with his downed C-47. Cropped to square, shot on Canon AV-1 with Tudor (Fuji?) film 200asa.

Long Time, No Post

Hard to believe its been such a long time since I posted. Unfortunately, a very close and dear friend passed away after long battle with an illness. Though I completely splurge and bought a massive amount of film in last November, photography has really been the last thing on my mind.

However, I did take a couple of Polaroid shots this weekend, and I checked my fridge, and I have still have 8 rolls of colour negative film to develop. I might roll up my sleeves and develop them this weekend.

Here's a little shot I took this weekend using 690 film, with my 600SE camera, titled 'Walk Away'

Infrared Abandoned Train

This was my first attempt at Infrared Photography. I had used very old chemicals (3 years expired but refridgerated) - I probably 'pushed' it a bit too far, but as this was a test roll, it was ok for me to just muck around with it. The results where interesting but very very grainy. Though they looked sharp on the negative, once scanned you definitely

I used a super 720 infrared filter, so dark you can't actually see through the lens and Ilford Sfx 200 film with my Canon AV-1

This train is one of the abandon trains you see in the NZ move 'What becomes of the broken hearted'.

Polaroid Beginners Guide

Happy Pola New Year all.

I hope that everyone is going well. I spent most of my spare time during the holidays changing this site template and also Polaroid Beginners Guide. It sums up everything that I've learned from using polaroid film, mistakes I've made, tips and tricks I've learned.

Its not really written for experts and hopefully its simply enough so that people can easily get started using this awesome photographic medium.

I've been a bit too busy at the moment to take photos - but I hope I'll get the chance this year. In the mean time, I hope to be adding more stuff to the beginners guide here.
