This season, I submitted a small selection of photographs and an even smaller poem to the National Trust's Spring Nature Diary.
Writes of Spring is a crowd-sourced collection of creative work curated by Dr Pippa Marland, as part of the extensive Land Lines research project at the University of Leeds.
Shooting 35mm motion picture film in a stills camera is always fun. It opens up a new world of experimentation with unique emulsions used in Hollywood and beyond.
The folks at CineStill now offer a low speed daylight film repacked from Kodak Vision 50D, whilst promising: "The exposure latitude of this film is beyond anything digital and even most other films can hope to achieve."
Shooting a roll over the Summer, I tried this film out and the results speak for themselves.
I recently acquired a 35mm roll of PolyPan F, a black and white panchromatic film designed for striking positives for motion film. For some time photographers have been using this cheap stock for stills photography with captivating results.
For some time I've been experimenting with Kodak's Panatomic-X, a film which has long since ended production yet leaves a legendary status as one of the finest black and white films ever produced.
I'm just getting used to my new exposure...
