On Phone

I hardly ever shoot colour, or at least envision the images I make in the context of a colour. On this occasion I did so I decided to keep it that way.

I don't know how often I will be updating this blog, but I will as often as possible. I need to make the time is my obvious excuse.

I have been putting a fare bit of my time into a couple of other projects. The first is a personal one which you can have a peek at
the work consists of large format portraits of friends. Simple and very rewarding, working in large format really is a wonderfully refreshing method of capturing images. It forces you to slow down take a breath and watch.

The seconded project is a joint venture with other like minded people in West End. the suburb of Brisbane where I currently reside. We have formed the West End Camera Club. Currently we have a temporary Blog site up and running with a full Web site half way completed. We do hope to be ready to go online by the end of the month (fingers crossed). Our hope is to create a community based gathering of people to share in as many aspects of Photography as possible. So please have a look and bookmark the new blog

I almost forgot I have been shooting with a Olympus Stylus Epic. A fixed 35mm point & shoot camera. I ran my first roll of cheapo Kodak Gold 400 through it, I had them delved and scanned at BigW. Here is a pic of a couple of unlucky friends of mine

So until then ... cheers

Ricoh has a new patent (2016-201400) field in Japan for a Bayer sensor without a colour filter array (CFA) which should create sharper monochrome images. If dreams could come true a Ricoh GR Monochrome (ala Leica) would be an absolute corker.
We are all holding our breath for the Next incarnation of the Cult Ricoh GR APSC Camera. A 'Ltd Edition Monochrome' camera would be fantastic indeed.  Finger, toes and balls crossed.

Leica Q vs Ricoh GR

Quick comparison between the Leica Q & Ricoh GR .........Posted with Blogsy

VSCO FILM® 07 & Ricoh GR

Nice indeed, I'm really enjoying this pack. There is enough variety here that makes it worth the purchase, especially with the launch discount and stackable loyalty discount if you've purchased any one of their film packs before. Even still, VSCO packs are never cheap, and if you're wanting to get a good idea of the power of these presets and how easy they are to use, the new VSCO Film 00is aFREEstarter pack from VSCO - It has both Kodak Tri-Xand Kodak Gold 100. Back in the day, thats almost all one would need, so give it a crack - it's got more than just two presets, with all the variants you would expect (Kodak Tri-X 400 ++ anyone? :p )

VSCO Film 07 is available from the VSCO website,
