Sooo, it was a pretty lazy arvo here in Clarko yesterday due to the weather, so since I’d burned 7 rolls of c41 in the past few weeks, I thought I’d mix up a new uni-color c41 kit and do some dev’ing.
I always enjoy dev’ing. Actually having to go through so much effort to get your images, that once it works it really makes you appreciate them . I always get mixed results with c41 developing, some of these rolls have come out nice and bright and some have the unusual blue hue I often get from dev’s in these uni-color kits, once I have finished these I think I will switch to trying a different c41 developer to see if I can garner better results. I have some interesting emulsions in this batch so stay tuned for some scans of Kodak supra 800 and Kodak high definition 400 amongst some others. I have a bunch of random emulsions that I am keen to get stuck into. A lot of these are just mainly general snapping or test rolls put through the cameras I have been fixing up lately. 🙂
I know, I know, I said I would be posting more frequently… I have been, but still probably not as often as I should be. haha
While I have been a little quiet here the last month, I have actually been really busy in whatever spare time I get. Whilst a lot of my time away from work has been in preparation of the birth of our first child, I have still managed to steal away often enough to go for wonders with my camera. I must admit I have been starting to formulate a focus in my shooting as of late. While in the past I freely admit I have been predominantly a snap shot shooter, still am to some extent, I am trying to focus myself on creating more images that are of a nature that they would stand up to printing or display in a gallery, I have had quite an interest in rural landscapes to this effect as of late, I will share some once I feel happy enough with any of the images I have created.
Having posted the photos from our recent Melbourne trip yesterday, it reminded me that I had never actually posted my snaps from the last time I went to Melbourne in 2013 as part of a work trip. It’s quite trippy how reminiscent both sets of images are I think. I only got a couple of hours to walk the streets on my own with my cam to make the most of it. I do not remember all the stories that go with these now, so instead will allow the images to speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy. 🙂
I have done rather limited traveling in my adult life. In fact I have never really been on a proper trip in my adult life other than for work. Which was also to Melbourne a few years back. (I still need to post those pics actually. haha) Ever since I was determined to go back and take my girl with me.
….and life has been crazy the last few years. Bands have broken up, bought a house, got engaged, done some traveling etc. etc. and all the while life got so crazy that I neglected some of my most favorite things. Like my little photography blog…
Well it’s 2016, a new year with a new outlook, time to get back to enjoying this life more. 🙂
