Spiderman lurking in the bushes ready to pounce…

Spiderman lurking in the bushes ready to pounce

Was out to dinner at the pub with the family, had brought this spidey toy along for the little fella. Had some fun with it while waiting for our meals. 🙂

This was shot on a roll of Ilford hp5 through my Canon ae-1 as I had originally put this roll in one of my Minolta a7’s. However I thought it had not loaded properly. In my haste to check, I broke the clasp that holds the door closed. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. Anyway, I rewound the roll, put it in my darkbag and loaded it into a re-usable canister I use for bulk rolling and then proceeded to shoot the roll in my canon ae-1.

I dev’d this roll in rodinal, using the stand dev method and scanned the negative on my Epson 4990.

Random roll… Kodak Gold 100

I love those random rolls you acquire as a film photographer. Old expired ones as part of lots or at the bottom of old camera bags you got with old camera purchases. You know the ones, we have all had them. You throw them into new cameras as test rolls, just shoot them when bored to see. I think most of us have done it.

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.
