I took a trip to London earlier this week, a day-trip so not for anything specific, and as such took a ton of photo’s. The vast majority were on film so I’ve got a few roll’s to get developed that are going to appear sometime down the line on the blog here, but in the meantime I thought I’d share a landscape/cityscape shot I took.

Some shameless self promotion

In a change from my usual postings of a nice photo (at least i think they’re nice usually) and the ramblings of myself as I describe what I like about it and the settings and camera bits and pieces used to capture said shot, I thought I’d take the time to do a bit of shameless self promotion. Below is a link to my Flickr page, on it is a large selection of photo’s I have taken over the last few years, both film and digital, and I’ve made the assumption that if perhaps you’re reading this blog on a regular basis that maybe you’d have an interest in taking a look.

Ogmore Castle

This the last post in a series across this week of the Ogmore River, the other two can be found here and here, and this time it’s of the ruined castle itself that sits next to the river. The photo below was taken on my Nikon FM with 28mm on Ilford FP4 125 ISO film at f11 1/125th sec.

Bridge Over the Ogmore River

As I said yesterday I’ve got some more shots of the River Ogmore near the castle in South Wales and I’ll be posting them across the next few days, this is the second instalment, the first can be found here.

First up this shot of a bridge across the river taken on my Nikon FM with 28mm lens on Ilford FP4 125 ISO film and at f5.6 1/500th sec.

Experiment with colour

I was given some expired film, Truprint ISO 400, by my girlfriends dad a while back. I have no idea how out of date it was, there was not expiry date printed on it, but my best guess would be sometime around 2004 as it had been stored with a load of APS film with expiry dates ranging from October 2003 to October 2004. It hadn’t been stored in a fridge or anything like that, just a drawer for at least ten years so I was in two minds about using it, I’d always wanted to shoot with really old, expired film, but always assumed if it hadn’t been stored correctly it would be far too degraded to give any images that weren’t just a oddly coloured mess. How wrong I was. Below are a selection of images I took using the Nikon FM with 28mm lens, some have beautiful grain and some have a wonderful warm, sepia glow, in my opinion all are a resounding success.
