Go To
2023 · 06 December 2023
My 'go to' film for this time of year, Kodak Portra 800; fast, very fine grained, good colour saturation, w-i-d-e underexposure latitude and pushable to 1600 when desired.

My photography, when I have managed to do any this year, has been pretty unfocussed so to speak. Not only have I lost direction and motivation creatively but I have become more and more bored with the press and squirt approach engendered by the ever 'smarter' digital tech out there. I have given this much thought and thus decided to reset my photographic goals for the upcoming new year.

“This is the first-ever colour film made entirely from emulsion to cassette at the HARMAN technology factory in Mobberley, a significant and incredibly exciting milestone. This quirky, experimental film produces high-contrast images with strong, visible grain and punchy, vibrant colours. It’s unlike any other colour film.” – HARMAN Photo Press Release

Wandering about in the woods with my M.Zuiko 12-45mm f4 Pro 'standard' zoom catching a mostly wider view of the forest glades after the recent storms as Autumn marches relentlessly onwards.

A tithe; one tenth of annual produce, formerly taken as a tax for the support of the Church and clergy. Hence the Tithe Barn where they stored all the tithes they collected.

Mellow Yellow

"They call me Mellow Yellow (Quite rightly)" - Donovan, 1966. Not however being mad about, as in Donovan's case, Saffron but rather the trees from my Autumn woodland walkabout.

OM-5 Zoom Triumvirate
2023 · 06 November 2023
My f4 pro zoom triumvirate is just made for adventures with my OM-5 and is the ultimate travel troika. However, sometimes my little f4-5.6 14-150mm II super zoom, though a big compromise, is simply enough.

Actual Autumn
2023 · 01 November 2023
It's the first of November and actual Autumn is now with us with the deciduous trees around our way undergoing their annual transmogrification. Time to get the camera out once more for the seasonal photo colour fest.
