Peter’s Stone, Peak District 2018 UK
Hassleblad 503CW f22 1/4s +0.9+81A 50mm Fuji Provia 100
Hasselblad 503CW f22 1/4s +0.9+81A 50mm Fuji Provia 100

Peter’s Stone is a circular limestone dome in the Wardlow Mires, northern end of Cressbrook Dale. This is where the last gibbet in the county stood and local legend has it this was the last gibbeting. A gibbet was a gallows used to display the bodies of criminals after their execution and this is where they were left until long after execution with their bones rattling against the iron cage serving as a deterrent to other would-be criminals.

I have used Fuji Provia slide film for this shot. I like slide film colours. Although Provia is not my top favourite stock I like to shoot it when I can.

Do you have a favourite film stock?

What it is? Let us know below!

Trip to the coast

This trip to the coast technically happened in December 2018, but I have just processed the films so I will talk about it now. 🙂

Steetley Pier in Hartlepool is a great location for seascape photography. I have never heard of it before Chris came with it as a location for our coast photo trip.

A short story about how I lost my film shots from the morning shoot

Last Sunday I finally went out to take pictures. For various reasons I was not able to go out in January, so I was looking forward to it a lot. I prepared my gear evening before, make sure all batteries are charged for Mavic. Also, I have loaded Kodak Ektar into one of the backs for my Hasselblad.

Operating at both extremes of technology

Posted Leave a comment

A little bit on how I found myself operating on both sides of technology.

I don’t know why, but I have a soft spot for all things analogue. Film, books, watch, vinyl, just to name a few…
In 2016 I have switched my landscape photography to analogue and I have never looked back. (more…)

St.Marrys Lighthouse, Northumberland 2018 UK
Hasselblad 503W f11 2s +0.6ND Lee filter + Polariz Lee 50mm Fuji Across 100
Hasselblad 503W f11 2s +0.6ND Lee filter + Polariz Lee, 50mm Fuji Acros 100

St.Mary’s Lighthouse is a great place to visit. I love the place. This morning I have shot several shots on the colour slide and negative films.

But also few exposures on Fuji Acros. It makes me sad knowing that this film is no longer available. 

What is your favourite B&W film?

Autumnal trips.

Autumn is great, colours, low light. Coldness in the morning and late sunrises. Yes, I love autumn. 

This is the right season for us landscape photographers.
