Fantastic morning light in Peaks. Love this colour. It almost looks like this picture was made on Velvia50 but no. This is Kodak Ektar 100 in its finest. Truly great negative film for landscapes.

Whats your favourite film stock?

Older summer morning shot from Higger Tor in Peak District.

I have been quite lucky with the light.

The golden light lit up the rock and mist gave the picture multidimensional feel… I’m quite pleased with this one.

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?

Running , Olympus 35RC Lomo Lady Grey 400

Out with Lady Grey

Posted Leave a comment

I met Lomo Lady Gray 400 by chance, in Boots drug store. It was a 3 film pack on SALE!  3 rolls of  36 exposures films for £2 ( normal price per pack is £16.99).  I bought all the packs they had in the shop. Bargain. I did not know much about this film, but I took my chances.

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.

Lumsdale Falls, Peak District 2018 UK
Hasselblad 503CW f16 1s no filter 50mm Kodak TMAX400
Hasselblad 503CW f16 1s no filter 50mm, Kodak TMAX400

A hidden gem in the Peak District. Many people don’t even know this place exists. It is a pretty special place. The valley is home to a series of magnificent waterfalls, ponds and the ancient ruins of three mills. This area is of huge archaeological significance, here you will find one of the largest collections of water-powered industrial mills in the country! The area is a scheduled ancient archaeological site and much work continues to preserve this beautiful piece of English heritage.

Kodak TMAX400 is my favourite B&W stock.

What’s yours? Let me know below!

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.
