Fremantle – Street

I had to go back to Perth for a few days a couple of weeks ago, even being such a whirl wind trip I was able to squeeze in some street photography.
Here are a few photos from that walk around.

Nikon FM2 w/50mm f1.8d loaded with Kodak BW400CN




A1 & fiddy 1.4

I picked up this Canon A1 and 50mm f1.4 from a vintage shop a couple of weeks ago.
It was pretty dirty, had a flat battery, I could barely see through the lens and I didn’t realise that it had fungus in the lens until I got it home and gave it a quick clean.


This morning I decided to give it a clean up. First I cleaned the body and got rid of the dirt and dust then I cleaned & removed the old light seals in prep for when the ones turn up.


Once the body was finished it was on to the lens. The outside needed a good scrub but the main job was in getting rid of the dust & fungus from the inside of the lens which required pulling the lens apart to clean it.
Once I got the lens apart it was pleasing to see that the glass elements had not been damaged by the fungus &  cleaned up like new.


I can’t wait to get the light seals fitted so I can shoot it!


Still shooting film! (Been a while between posts)

It has been a while since I posted on here partly because I have been shooting on film and partly because I have been busy.
The more I shoot on film & the more photos I get back from being developed the more I am liking shooting on film so I’m going to leave this post with a shot taken last year but only developed a couple of weeks ago.

My fave film camera, A Nikon FM2 shot on Ilford Pan 100.

I have a fair few rolls of film to go through so I will be making posts on here more regularly now as I have some content to post.

Manly-Wynnum Walk (More Photos)


Before I head out on today’s adventure I wanted to post some more photos from last weekend.

Manly-Wynnum Walk


I have been shooting film more than digital lately so today I decided to go out with my D7000 w/Sigma 35mm Art. (As much as I wanted to shoot my Electro 35!)

I ended up going to Manly and walking from the Manly Boat Harbor up to the Wynnum Wading Pool and back again.

Here’s some of the photos, I’ll post more later in the week.

Yashica Electro 35 GSN

I bought myself a rangefinder yesterday, a Yashica Electro 35 GSN.
The guy I bought it from lives about 20min from the Glass House Mountains so I figured I’d grab some lunch the head to the mountains and put a roll through it. Its such a nice camera to use and the shutter is so quiet I can’t wait do shoot some street with it!
Anyway here are some photos of it taken with my D7000 and Sigma 35mm art. (Love that lens!)Yashica GSN-001-web Yashica GSN-002-web Yashica GSN-008-web

The Maitre’D

Before I took this photo I signaled to my camera that I would like to take a photo but the Maitre’D  thought i was asking if he would step out of sight so I had to go up and ask him if he would be in the photo for me, with a slightly puzzled look on his face he said “Oh yep ok”.

I love the way this came out, it’s exactly how I pictured it! It’s great when that happens.untitled shoot-008-Edit-web

Lyrical Equations

Last week walking around Brisbane I met Ben from Lyrical Equations, he was out hustling & promoting Brisbane Hip-Hop.
Super down to earth guy doing his bit to help the youth of Brisbane and get them motivated & into doing something positive with their time.

A quote from the Lyrical Equations Facebook page.
“Lyrical Equations is one of many re-engagement programs under the “YATF” Youth Are the Future banner. We are an organisation that covers every profession within the Creative Industries.
Over the past 4 years we have been working in numerous Schools and Community Organisations across Queensland delivering tailor made programs for disenfranchised, disadvantaged and disengaged youth of all ages and backgrounds. The workshops can cover a whole range of components from learning how to write rhymes “Lyrical Poetry”, learning about different styles of Hip Hop Dance, learning about music production and Beat Making, Painting and Drawing and or Theater and Performance.

Big props go out to the Lyrical Equations team for their efforts!
