Some more,

this one was another from the Spa

And this one is the last picture I took on the Olympus 35rc. Emma and I scarred our bodies up before we left Whitby and although the 35rc’s light meter told me it was too dark I went with instinct and set the camera to f2.8 and 1/30th of a second and bang! turns out it wasn’t too dark after all silly light meter!

That’s all for now!

Hi folks, these next two are my attempt at street photography. I do enjoy it but I find if you are not doing it all the time, it really  shows. There is a big confidence needed for effective street shots shots.

The first one is from the last roll I took a good few weeks ago in Newcastle on the millennium bridge

When I saw the shot, I got a rush of excitement, pulled the camera out of my bag (olympus 35rc) set it up and snapped two shots as I passed. the first was too far away(confidence) the second was much better I did have to crop slightly. But I am pleased with this one seeing as I hadn’t really shot any street stuff in a long time.

The second is from our holiday. This was our day trip from Whitby to Scarborough shot at  the spa
This is a gorgeous location, there was a bbc organist playing beach tunes(and abba) and the place was full of pensioners sitting on deck chairs asleep. We didn’t pay the 3 pound to get in but instead climbed the steps and listened for free above. while we sat I noticed this guy asleep I really wanted the picture but his wife was sat very close to him wide awake. I tried some sneaky shots from affair but it wasn’t right. I needed to be close, but had to wait until we were leaving so I could get take it when I walked past. Anyway I got it but had to straighten the picture some. This was shot on hp5 in the 35rc on a very sunny day. I zone focused the camera to about 1.5 meters and shot from the hip. I am very pleased with it.

Developed in rodinal at 1+100 for 16 minutes(I am running out of developer and have no money for new so I am being very frugal)

More to come from our holiday!
