I though I would post all the street shots I took on holiday at Whitby. These were all taken on my Olympus 35rc rangefinder camera, on hp5+ at 400 or pushed to 800 developed in rodinal.

Next up will be some pictures from a shoot I did in Newcastle yesterday.

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!

So me and the missus had a day in our local city today. We had a look in the Baltic (in Gateshead of course), not massively impressed with what we saw (and heard) but we did have a nice chat with one of the guides about the complicated task of changing installations each time. This was brought on by a massive brick wall that was from the floor to the ceiling, turns out it wasn’t really a brick wall. It was more like tiles…anyway moving on. I took a few snaps when we left there (trying my hand at street photography).

We also popped into Side Photographic Gallery link, bizarrely this was the first time I have been here and I am truly glad we popped in. There is an exhibition by Lynsey Addario (Veiled rebellion: Women in Afghanistan) A terribly moving exhibition. I really encourage anyone nearby to not only support this marvelous Gallery anyway, but it would be worth your while to see these pictures and read the stories along side them. The exhibition is running until 13 October 2012, also Lynsey Addario will be talking about her work at the side gallery on Saturday 15th September, 2pm FREE entry!  http://www.lynseyaddario.com/

Anyway I will leave you with a couple of my older street shots, I hope the couple I took today come out well..still a while to finish the roll though. Bloody 35mm!(I can never finish the roll)

These were all taken on my little Olympus 35rc rangefinder(what I had with me today) and were probably shot on Ilford hp5.
