Cornwall Medium Format

Back in March I travelled down to Cornwall to visit a few friends, I took a stupid amount of film and equipment with me and have finally got around to scanning them all in and ready to post here. Below are a number of images taken with my Yashica D and my Zenza Bronica S2A using Kodak Ektar and Fuji Pro 160s 120 film. Enjoy.

Street Photography – Olympus OM-D EM-5; 86

I had a bit of a change with my street photography around February this year, very much influenced by the workshop I went on that highlighted some of my flaws, and a lot of opportunities that I had been missing. The first of these was having a new found desire not  just to photography shadows, light, darkness and where the shapes and all of these intersect but also to seek out interesting looking people to go with this. Hopefully this post shows some of the first of this new direction I’ve taken.

As usual these are all taken with my Olympus OM-D EM-5 and either 25mm Panasonic Leica Summilux or M.Zuiko 17mm lenses. Enjoy them.

Hungarian Adventure – Part Two: National Holiday & A Balaton Bumm

For the second day of our Hungarian trip, and the first full day of sightseeing, we found ourselves surrounded by armed guards, police and other emergency services.

Our hotel, being on a main thoroughfare of the city, was surrounded by revellers, police and podiums with political figures giving speeches and rallies. It was a great spectacle of a nation coming out on to the streets to celebrate their heritage, history and pride. What it also meant is that every museum and public attraction was free for the whole day, a major result. (more…)
