I recently received the prints from the last few rolls of 120 film that I shot with my Diana F+.  This camera has been something of a learning curve, but I think I’m getting the hang of it. One thing I’ve learned is this type of film (Lomography Color Negative 120 film 100), needs a […]

I spent the past couple of weeks assessing where I’m going with my photography.  I’ve been posting a lot of my work with lomography and vintage cameras, but at the expense of any work with my DSLR. I got into lomography because it seemed like a fun way to get back into photography.  The trouble […]

My attempt at a cityscape from the highest point in Plymouth, Blockhouse Park, did not go to plan as I’ll describe later.  So on Sunday I went into town to take some more pictures of Bretonside Bus Station.  The weather was not on my side this weekend, being cloudy and overcast after a worse night. […]

This is just a quick update to let anyone who actually reads this know that I haven’t been inactive. I was hoping to post some pictures of the local bus station. When I looked at my images afterwards, I realized that they simply weren’t up to scratch. I plan on going back there to take […]

In my last post, I showed off the shots I took with my Voigtlander Vitoret during my trip to Bristol. When I finished the Peacock 110 film, I switched to the Lobster Redscale film. I took a couple of shots in Bristol, before using up the remaining shots back in Plymouth:   I’m not sure […]

I haven’t posted a couple of weeks as I had a lot of pictures to go through on my DSLR. Last week, however, I got a batch of pictures back from the labs at Lomography.com. These pictures were taken on my Voigtlander Vitoret 110, which I found on Ebay. I wanted to try a camera […]

In my last post I mentioned that I was getting lazy about my photography. I wasn’t going out with my camera as much. However, I didn’t consider my smartphone as a way of keeping my hand in when I’m on the go. Over the past five or so years, mobile photography seems to have taken […]

I have decided to return to this blog and have another go, since I went on a long hiatus from photography and have since got back into it on a more regular basis. I have no way to explain this break, other than life getting in the way and allowing myself to get distracted. It […]

I have always wanted to try my hand at street photography, as I love the idea of picking out scenes in everyday life that look dramatic, humorous or just strange. I have experienced so many moments where I noticed something odd or interesting during my daily commute that made me wish I had my camera […]

I realize it has taken me a while to update this blog, but I finally have the last article in my short series on basic black and white techniques.  This article will explain how to add colour to a black and white image, should you think it might benefit from a “duotone” effect. I selected […]
