CAMERA – Capta II

CAMERA: Capta II FILM: Kodak 160VC Expired 2001 TAKEN: September 2011 The Capta II is a strange beast. Made of bakelite, heavy and almost impossible to open, and elusive when searching the internet for any information. I’ve only used it once as now the red frame window is too foggy to look through and I’mContinue reading “CAMERA – Capta II”

CAMERA – Zenit E

CAMERA: Zenit E FILM: Lomography 400 colour TAKEN: April 2011 I bought the hunk of metal otherwise known as the Zenit-E at a photography market in Perth.

Leica M3 & Kodak Ultramax 400

CAMERA: Leica M3 FILM: Kodak Ultramax 400 When I was lent the Leica M3 I was so excited by the results I had in black and white that I wasn’t sure that it would do colour as wonderfully. Oh, how I proved myself wrong! I went to one of the usual places I go whenContinue reading “Leica M3 & Kodak Ultramax 400”

INSTAX 2017 no.8

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Well, I really ran out of steam on the Instax after using it non-stop for a while!

CAMERA – Lomokino

CAMERA: Lomography Lomokino FILM: Kentmere 400 When the Lomokino was first announced I was excited, and I backed it on Kickstarter.

INSTAX 2017 no.7

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour There’s a film in one of my cameras waiting to be developed with photos I know will not come out very well.

ARCHIVE – Baby’s first film camera

Throw your minds back to 2007, and how difficult it was to buy anything online in Australia. Now imagine that you are 16 and don’t have a credit card but you really want this weird plastic camera that sounds like it was named after a Swedish milkmaid. That was me, looking to get a HolgaContinue reading “ARCHIVE – Baby’s first film camera”

INSTAX 2017 no.4

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour The Barbican Estate has slowly become one of my favourite places in London during the past 3 years I have lived here.

INSTAX 2017 no.3

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Some weekends I go out with friends and others are spent alone, but I always try and go out to see something new or to revisit an old favourite.

INSTAX 2017 no.2

CAMERA: Fuji Instax Mini 90 Neo Classic FILM: Fuji Instax Mini colour Sun glorious sun! Oh how the sun makes London so beautiful.
