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?

Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.

A quiet evening at Bamford Edge , Peak District UK.

I love when last of the light make an extraordinary show. This was really beautiful. I’m quite pleased to see how Kodak Ektar handled the colours.

What’s your view on Kodak Ektar? Do you use it?

There is no such a thing as artistic photography. In photography, like in all things, there are people who can see and others who cannot even look.

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.
