  1. Back Into My Colour Darkroom - Surprise!

    by , 01-19-2009 at 09:58 PM
    I finally got back into my colour darkroom today. Well, not really back in, as this is the first time I've done any colour work in my current darkroom. So, this is now my fourth colour darkroom. Today was my first time using Tetenal chemistry. I processed two rolls of Agfa RSXII 100. The first one was unmarked, and I had assumed that the subject was some night shots here in Melbourne from about six months ago. So imagine my delight when not only did the first roll look fine, but the subject ...
  2. Photography and adventure in Tawas.

    by , 01-19-2009 at 11:38 AM
    On Saturday (1/17/09) I decided it'd be fun to get some "snowy lighthouse" pictures. So I went online and found that a close, publicly accessable lighthouse would be the Tawas Point Lighthouse. So I got up a the butt-crack of dawn (5am for me) on Sunday, got ready and headed out. It's a 2hr drive to Tawas, MI from here so I was hoping to make sunrise.

    After getting some McD's breakfast, gas, and a little miscommunication between me and my GPS, it turned into a 3hr drive. ...

  3. Summer in Sydney - Dollar Portraits Shoot

    by , 01-15-2009 at 09:32 PM (Click)
    On my way home one day I ran into a very pretty girl reading a newspaper. I approached her for a portrait. I don't recall my exact words but it went something like this, "Please don't think I'm a psycho but..." As I approach people on the street some of them look at me with this frightened look so I begin with that line. I'm building an arsenal of lines and reading people very quickly. I won't pretend I get them all right and some will always say no despite anything I say.

  4. Can sloppy be a style?

    by , 01-15-2009 at 12:20 PM
    I read somewhere here a quote that went something like "You can be a sloppy photographer, just as long as you're consistently sloppy."

    Sometimes I feel like I live that. One example is that I just have a fundamental problem getting a horizon line level in the camera. I have spirit levels and they only seem to make things worse some how. I still try someteimes, but feel much more comfortable taking an "off balance" shot or a shot that simply doesn't need any ...
  5. Ragnar Axelsson: Faces of the North

    by , 01-11-2009 at 09:28 AM
    I didn't find a review on this gorgeous book on APUG, so here is mine!

    I recently went to Iceland in mid-winter and was fortunate to meet Ragnar Axelsson and collect his signature on this book, which is filled with remarkably effective b&w images from his ventures in Iceland, Greenland, and the Faeroe islands.

    I won't attempt to try to put into words what is best expressed in the images, but I will just make a few observations. First of all, Ragnar's images are ...
