Snapsh!ts

Just some unedited snapsh!ts going back a year probably. Starting with a field in Iceland, exciting stuff right?

A more recognisable image of Iceland.

Shooting 6×7 at the Burn House.

Somewhere in Edinburgh, on my way to see Makoto Shinkai at Scotland Loves Animation.

img013

Aikmans (again).

img011

Probably wanted to use up the last shot so I could stick it in the dev tank.

Mounting prints for a PhotoSoc exhibition & auction.

And at the auction the following day.

Random Snapsh!ts

I think when I first got the Biogon I decided to take photos of foliage simply to see whether the lens was as sharp as people raved. Of course when scanned on a flatbed it’s not like I can really judge…

Playing with some programmable logic teaching aid thing.

img006

Then to the pub again.

img008

img012

img013

And more flash in the pub, but which somehow ended up on this roll instead of with the others.

img015

img016

And two more shots that came out of the Yashica Mat at some point during its broken-ness.

Some 2012 snapshits

More scanning, some snapsh!ts between August & December last year. Starting off with Covent Garden during the London Olympics, unfortunate that I was only carrying b&w at the time asa the flags were all different colours.

img009

Jumping forward to December, walking back to the train station after the (amazing) PostSecret Live at Assembly Hall.

And then we appear to be in the pub again; not sure these posts reflect well upon my pastimes…

More f/1.1 snapsh!ts

Scanned another roll, starting to get used to the workflow & how to avoid Newton’s rings; the ‘top’ 35mm row of the V600’s negative holder seems more susceptible to them than the ‘bottom’. Mix of St Andrews & a party at a friends’ place in Dundee.

Nailing focus when drunk~

img006

Not really sure what I was going for, think maybe I was hoping the reflection would come out nicely.

img007

Seems not everybody approves of being a subject…

img011-Edit

…whereas others are more indifferent/bemused.

img013

No flash, even though it looks a bit like it was.

img012

img027

Kinda wish it was more obvious/believable that she was looking at him…

img019

…then him at her.

Fellow camera geek & spam aficionado, Doug.

It seems you shouldn’t push Tri-X to 1600 if you want any shadow detail.

Not nailing focus when drunk.

Honestly no idea what was going on here, but I suspect it involved the kittens.

img034

Subject isolation! On the X100…

img035

…and on an actual person!
