Kodak’s Portra 800

With regular colour film being a bit difficult to get at times, I was surprised to be able to pick up a roll of Kodak’s Portra 800. At £18:99 for the roll it is perhaps the most expensive roll of film I’ve tried to date! At todays exchange rate it’s just under $21. I thought,…

Delta 100 @ Buildwas Abbey

The Congregation (order) of Savigny started in northern France, in the Diocese of Coutances. It originated in 1105 when Vitalis of Mortaine established a hermitage in the forest at Savigny, France. Amazing only 30 years later they founded Buildwas Abbey on the banks of the River Severn, in Shropshire. Only 12 years later, it was…

Falling in and out of love with Polaroid!

The other day I watched “The Impossible Project” on Amazon Prime. If you have the chance to see it I recommend the film. It is largely about Dr Florian Kaps, known as “Doc” to his friends. He is the worlds leading expert on spider eye muscles, although to anyone reading this, more importantly, he is…

More Pushed HP5

While I had the roll of HP5 in the Canon EOS30, I popped on the 40mm and took it with me on my almost weekly visit to the local garden centre, for breakfast. This is the roll that I was pushing to 800, I’m pleased with the results and in some instances can’t really see…

A few more from the Scavenger Hunt

As I mentioned in the last but one post, I had a go at the film scavenger hunt, on the Casual Photophile site. I used my Canon AE-1 Program with a roll of Kodak Color Plus. I have to say I never got to the end of it – so don’t despair of endless posts!…

Pushing HP5

If you are of a certain age, you might remember when Ilford films had colour coded lids! They still use the same colours for the film branding, Orange – Pan F, Blue – FP4, Green – HP5, Red – XP2. I’m not sure if the 3200 ever had a purple lid, I only used my…

Photographic Scavenger Hunt

When I came back from holiday, I thought I’d have a bash at the “34 Shot Film Photography Scavenger Hunt” that I found on the Casual Photophile site. I decided to use my Canon AE-1 Program, with it’s 50mm f1.8, and a roll of Color Plus 200, nice and simple! I downloaded the “clues” and…

Rollei 35B

I have recently been having a clear out, 6 or 7 cameras have left my possession, some books, CD’s, – clothes are the next thing to edit! I’ve also been more selective of the cameras that have been incoming over the last 6 months, I have plenty after all! One that I did let through…

Autumn with the Canon AE-1

Autumn seems a long time ago now. I had a film in my Canon AE-1 Program, which I’ve just finished off, one of the troubles of owning too many cameras! In this case it was a Kodak colour plus. I had made a short walk around the neighbourhood, to capture some of the colours, which…

Wroxeter with the ME Super

Wroxeter in Shropshire was in roman times the 4th largest city in Britain. It’s under the care of English Heritage these days, and since I was in the neighbourhood I had to pay it a visit. The tallest part of the site is know as “The Old Work” and is a 7 meter tall chunk…
