Another image shot on Kodak Ektachrome E100 last summer…

I’ve photographed this cheeky sign that advertises That Little Tea Shop in the Lanes in Brighton a few times but as yet I’ve not sampled said shop’s menu… I really must pop in for tea and cake at some point!

Slide Film Sunday… From the archives

All Saints Church, Ashover, May 2000All Saints Church, Ashover, May 2000
Fujica GW690 – 1/30s, f5.6, – Kodak Ektachrome 100S

I’ve mentioned before one of the ‘perks’ of working in the photographic retail trade being the occasional loan of equipment that I wouldn’t otherwise get to use…

20 years ago (almost to the day) I borrowed a Fuji GSW 690 III for a weekend, shooting a mixture of black & white and out of date slide film.

The above image, of All Saints Church in Ashover, Derbyshire, was taken during a stroll around the village after shutting up the shop for the day. The EBC Fujinon SW 65mm f/5.6 lens gives a wider view than the GW 690’s 90mm that I’ve got used to in the last 18 months (and finally bought from the chap who kindly loaned it to me… thanks James!) and the notes I made at the time show that I was hand-holding the camera at shutter speeds down to 1/30 second!

Slide Film Sunday… Chevrolet 3100 Pickup

I hadn’t used slide film in almost 20 years until I bought a couple of rolls of Kodak Ektachrome E100 from Analogue Wonderland last summer.

This gleaming 1956 Chevrolet 3100 pickup was photographed at MFN‘s ‘American ‘n’ Classic Car ‘n’ Truck ‘n’ Bike’ show in August on the fantastically compact and lightweight Nikon F75 SLR fitted with the very underrated AF Nikkor 28-80mm f/3.5-5.6D lens…

I loved the results from the Ektachrome, the images are sharp, contrasty and so very colourful, hopefully I’ll be able to shoot some more this summer!
