Developed in Adox Rodinal at 1:25, 9 mins at 20°c.

A few days ago a conversation with friends turned to ‘self-care’ and the sort of things we did that helped our mental health… Quite simply the above image sums up the thing I do most often… take a stroll in woodland with a camera and some black & white film.

Works every time.

Mamiya C330, Mamiya-Sekor 80mm f/2.8 – 1/250s, f11, – O.O.D. Fuji Provia RDP II 100

An image from Expired Film Day 2022.

A few months ago a pal (Hi Simon!) gave me a quantity of Fuji Provia RDP II 100 and Velvia RVP 50 slide film that had all expired in 1997 or 1998. A bit of research suggested exposing it at box speed and cross my fingers for reasonable results.

The original slides have a colour cast and are a little underexposed but nothing a little tweak in Lightroom couldn’t sort out!

Yet another image from the first roll of colour film through my ONDU 6×6 Pocket pinhole camera.

I’m currently awaiting a delivery of Kodak Gold 200 in 120 from Analogue Wonderland and as soon as it arrives I’ll be loading a roll and shooting some pinhole pics!
