Broken, crushed, twisted and dried fields...

Taken on Sony A7r with LAEA4 adapter and Sigma 24mm f2.8 @ f8.

After having shot the original Broken, Crushed and twisted image while shooting my original two test rolls of Kodak 5302 here: Broken, crushed and twisted. I had noted the gorgeous colours in the image with the dried summer grasses. So I had to return the next afternoon with a digi and the exact same lens, so I could try to as close as possible capture the same’ish image but in colour this time.

Another shot from my initial two test rolls on Kodak 5302. It really is beautiful film once you get it under control. I am keen to test a couple more rolls when time is permitting.

Cloudy summer days

Taken with my Sony A7r with LAEA4 adapter and Sigma 24mm f2.8 @f8 super wide Alpha mount.

I felt like my digi’s were getting a bit neglected from all the film shooting I’d been doing lately. I had also thought that the last shot I shared on the kodak 5302 ISO 6 b&w film could have really worked well in colour too, due to all the golden dry summer grass. Since I was having trouble with the current C41 kit I had been using and it yielding poor negatives for scanning, I decided to head out the next arvo with my digi’s to capture the shot in colour.

I’ve had two 100ft rolls of this Kodak 5302 b&w duplicating film in my film fridge for a couple of years now and it’s been itching at my mind lately that I really want to get out and test shooting some. I kept having this idea that it could potentially be great for Landscapes and long exposures. So I took one bulk roll out of my fridge and hand rolled two small rolls in my dark bag. It was Friday afternoon after work and there were some great clouds in the sky, so I went out to have a play.

Dry fields, twisted trees and powerlines...

Taken with Pentax Z1-P and Pentax 35-105mm zoom @F8 on Kodak HD400 expired 2005, Home developed in Cine-Mech C41 kit and scanned on Epson 4990.

A continuation of my recent series of twisted and gnarled trees in countryside fields. This is from the same day I was driving around with my 16 month son a couple of weeks back while there was a large bush fire off in the distance. I was basically just jumping out the car when I saw compositions I liked snapping and jumping back in and moving on before he got too frustrated with me/woke up from napping in the car.

Shot on my Pentax Z1-p with Pentax smc 35-105mm @F8 on kodak hd400 expired 2005, Home developed in Cine-Mech C41 kit and scanned on Epson 4990.

I decided to develop some of the eleven c41 rolls I had saved up over the weekend. My last unicolor c41 kit had been punctured it seemed and the chems looked off. So I decided to try a home made kit from a Russian eBay seller I had purchased a couple of years ago. I developed 5 rolls and was reasonably happy it worked, however the rolls look quite dark, this and the scans do not look particularly exceptional.

Angry bird

This was taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 using my Minolta 100-300 APO zoom @F4.5 on Ilford PanF 50, stand developed in Rodinal and scanned on my Epson 4990.

After returning home from being out for a drive with the little man in the countryside last Sunday on a super hot day here in Perth. I was trying to finish this roll so I could dev and scan it, so I was snapping around the house. This angry little Willie wagtail was flitting around the back yard, so I threw on my Minolta APO 100-300 and took a couple of snaps. It’s not tack sharp as It’s slow speed film and a long, slow lens, but it shows the attitude of the little fella. haha

Was out for a drive with the little man in the countryside Sunday on a super hot day here in Perth. There were massive bush fires on the horizon. He’d fallen a sleep in the car by this point so I was just pulling the car over when I saw things that struck my interest and quickly snapping before jumping back in the car and continuing on. We had been out for a few hours and the weather was changing so I was making our way home, but I really wanted to finish this roll so I could dev. it that arvo once we got home. I made a move to a few locations that are favorites of mine for shooting that I have not visited for a few years on my way back home. I do love this spot. It’s changed a bit and has a lot more dumped refuse since my last visit as you con see at the bottom of the frame. However it’s still a great spot.

He’d fallen a sleep in the car by this point so I was just pulling the car over when I saw things that struck my interest and quickly snapping before jumping back in the car and continuing on. I spied these dilapidated old farm houses as I was driving, so I quickly pulled the car over and took a quick snap before jumping back in and carrying on without waking the little man. haha

I am always a sucker for gnarled trees in countryside fields. This is a continuation of my gnarled trees post yesterday, though this is one of my favorites, being out in such an open field.
