As regular followers of this blog might be aware. I have a terrible relationship with the Canon EF 50mm 1.8 lens. It’s horrid, unclear, slow, noisy, and downright frustrating. So, I’ve retired it to where it always should have belonged – the cheapy film camera. I’ve had great last few weeks getting to know 35mm film at apertures I’ve never been able to access before. A smattering of home for you as I sort through my films from a recent trip to Christchurch. In sum, Mt Eden, Spence, Our city, toy cars, Tanuki’s Cave, moustache play, road signs and HOURS spent readying our website.
When shooting a test roll of film there’s obviously a lot of times that I’m out with the wifey. So in a totally non-creepy way, here’s a few more of the test shots continuing on from the last post. When I look at them though, I can see themes that have been fascinating me in my photography lately. Lo-fidelity, blur, close-ups, overexposure and reflections. The last shot?, well that’s just a memento of summer gone by. Bring on November, and christmas and the purchase of my very first barbecue to go in my very first house with an outdoor area.
