So how was the year 2020.

This year was everything but normal.

Pandemic changed everything that we planned and with no travel, there were a lot less photographic opportunities. Same applies for exhibitions and festivals.

MFPOTW – In the mist ver.2

Not every trip I did had nice light. This morning at Peak District, there was no light at all. But I took my camera out of my bag anyway.

I’m glad I did, the mist is adding a lot to this shot. When I look at this shot I feel loneliness.

Do you like to shoot in the mist?

MFPOTW – Stanage from Burbage rocks

Sunrise at Burbage rocks looking back at Stanage edge in Peak District. This place is a very accessible location in Peaks and I have lots of shots from this spot.

This time I was shooting legendary Acros 100 and I am really please with tonality on this shot.

Have you ever shot original Fuji Acros 100? How did you process it?

Winter shot of the beech tree at the  Bolehill quarry in Peak District. It was winter and this little tree shouted at me. I’m very happy how Kodak rendered the colours…

Have you been to the Bolehill Quarry?

I made a book with Saal Digital.

How was the experience? Here is the story.

Somewhere on the internet, most likely on Facebook, I found the advertisement. It said something like: “We need photographers to test out products….”.

MEDIUM FORMAT PICTURE OF THE WEEK – Rainy day

Rainy day

I walked up to Curbar Edge in hope to catch some interesting light that morning. The forecast was optimistic so I walked. Unfortunately light did not happen. Actually, nothing happened that morning.

There was no view, no light and it started to rain.  I did only one exposure this morning, this one on Kodak Trix 400.

I like it because of the mood of the shot, it summarizes the feeling that morning…

 

Do you shoot Kodak TRIX?

What’s your favourite B&W film?

Those who know me, know that I am a coffee drinker. I was intrigued when I learned that you can process black and white film in coffee …
