Happy little fella

Taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 with Minolta 50mm f1.8 on Kodak HD200 expired 2005, developed at Camera House Fremantle and Scanned at home on my Epson 4990.

 

So we had to go into Fremantle on Saturday morning to go take my boy Link to see one of his grandmothers who hadn’t seen him in a while. Since we were heading that way, and I knew Camera House Fremantle would be open and still did in house development with pretty quick turn around, I took the remaining 5 rolls of c41 I had left after my not so successful dev with the latest cheap kit I tried. I have had plenty of success in the past with the Unicolor c41 kits, bu these Cine-Mech kits I tried were rendering physically dark negs which were not scanning well.

Taken with Minolta Dynax 7 and Sigma 24mm f2.8 @ f8 with red filter on Kodak 5302, stand developed in rodinal and scanned on my epson 4990.

 

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.

My little chubba face

Taken on Minolta a7/dynax 7 using Minolta 50mm f1.4 on Kodak hd400 expired 2005. Home developed in Cine-Mech C41 kit and scanned on Epson 4990.

Still going through the 5 rolls I dev’d last Friday and trying to get all the scanning done. Just when I think I’m ready to give up shooting 35mm c41 and sell all my lovely film stocks to focus on larger formats and b&w, I produce some scan or portrait that just makes me start to fall in love with it all over again.

Go out and catch your dreams...

This was taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 using my Minolta 28mm f2.8 @F8 on Ilford PanF 50, stand developed in Rodinal and scanned on my Epson 4990.

…even if people try to shit on you along the way.

A bit of an inspiration post. As much to myself as to anyone else. Keep going out and creating and trying new things and being kind and happy. This life is too short to let petty things such as others negative opinions, or even your own negative head-space to get in the way of actually living. Go out and experience and create beauty my friends. It is all around us and we only have such a short time to take it all in and enjoy it.

Rundown farmhouses

This was taken with my Minolta Dynax 7 using my Minolta 28mm f2.8 @F8 on Ilford PanF 50, stand developed in Rodinal and scanned on my Epson 4990.

Was out for a drive with the little man in the countryside yesterday on a super hot day here in Perth. There were massive bushfires 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. 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.

Was out for a drive with the little man in the countryside yesterday on a super hot day here in Perth. There were massive bushfires on the horizon. Anyway, I decided to stop in a national park along our drive to take a quick respite from being cooped up in the car. There was some really interesting landscapes here. Having the little man with me didn’t allow me too much freedom to explore, but I did get of a couple of quick snaps.
