One of the Many Reasons Why I LOVE Large Format

Recently I was fortunate enough to take part in a joint exercise with my favourite local analogue photographers group, Melbourne Silver Mine and the White Night Melbourne to take some long exposure photography over the course of the night ~ from the White Night Melbourne site: In its 2013 debut, White Night Melbourne attracted more […]

This is Amazing

I often think of Photography in terms of freezing a specific slice of time for later perusal, but a gentleman named Adam Magyar has taken this conceptual framework to an amazing new artistic level.

More 365

Day 10 – Mr Sooty on the grass. The second-last pack of SX-70 Instant film is now finished, with only about 60% of the images being viable.

First Prints

So, the darkroom is mostly completed, apart from getting the plumbing connected up. I have managed to spend a few creative hours testing my skills as a print-maker. I hope to improve with time, but was quite pleased with the results I obtained for my first few prints. I managed not to waste too much […]
