I’ve just realised that so far this month I haven’t posted anything from my digital portfolio, it’s all been film related. So below is a shot taken of Llandaff Fields Park in Cardiff at dusk, using my Nikon D5200 and Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 EX DC lens and stacked ND1000 and ND Grad 0.9 filters.
The fourth and final instalment of my series of street photography shots taken during the Pride Cymru parade through Cardiff a few weeks ago, the other posts in this series can be found here; One, Two & Three. Hopefully you’ll enjoy these as much as I enjoyed taking them.
As with all of the previous photos these are taken with my Olympus OM-1 using either a 50mm Auto Zuiko 1:1.8 or Vivitar 28mm 1:2.8 lens on Fomapan Classic 100 monochrome film.
50mm f 5.6 1/125th sec. Check out the face of the bearded guy on the far left, he doesn’t look please does he? (more…)
Hello again, welcome to part three of my street photography showcase of the Pride Cymru march through Cardiff a few weeks ago. Parts ONE & TWO can be found by following the links by there. This selection has probably some of my favourite shots that I took that day.
As previously these are all taken with my Olympus OM-1 on Fomapan Classic 100 monochrome film using either an Auto Zuiko 50mm or Vivitar 28mm lens.
The second in the series of street photography shots taken at the Pride Cymru march through Cardiff a week or so ago, the first lot can be found here. Again all are taken using my Olympus OM-1 and either 50mm Auto Zuiko 1:1.8 or 28mm Vivitar 1:2.8 lenses on Fomapan Classic 100 monochrome film.
This is the first in what will become a four part series of shots taken during the Pride Cymru march through Cardiff City centre a week or so ago. I’ve always felt a little weird about street photography, I love how it can look and I really like the types of images that come out of it but I just feel very uncomfortable photographing strangers. That’s why an even like this worked so well for me, people expect there to be lots of camera’s and let their guard down, you’re just one of dozens on photographers in the crowd, exactly what I needed to get the confidence to do this.
So below are five images taken during Pride Cymru, all are taken on Fomapan Classic 100 film using my Olympus OM1 with either an F.Zuiko Auto-S 50mm 1:1.8 or Vivitar 1:2.8 28mm lens. More will follow in future posts.
Summers day in the park, music playing out of this Bluetooth speaker, sunburn, annoyed people telling you to turn it down, arguments with strangers, some kid hitting you in the head with a stray ball, someone’s dog pooping a bit too close to where you’re sitting for comfort. Ah the park.
Taken on Nikon FM with 28mm lens on Agfa Vista Plus 200 film at f4 1/1000th sec. (more…)
A relaxing summer beer on a relaxing summer’s evening, relaxing in the park. This is my friend Rich drinking a beer in what can only be described as a “disturbing fashion” during a barbecue in the park.

Probably not a rose, I know nothing about flowers. I do however know about colour, and this colour is something I like a lot. The bright yellow and greens all throughout this image, it’s lively, it’s fresh and it’s nature in it’s wonderfully punchy glory.
