Happened to be meeting my wife in Brisbane when she finished work, so I took the chance to do some street photography while I was in the city.
My new camera (Nikon D750) was great to use with my little 50mm f1.8d lens not too heavy or big.
Here is a little randomness from my walk.
This straight from my camera to my phone no pp at all.
Well Xmas is upon us again and I haven’t made a post on here since October.
I have still been shooting both film and digital and have a lot of images to post, although I am going to wait until next year as I plan to try my hardest to make sure I post at least once a week, a project 52 if you will.
I have been shooting a fair bit of skateboarding for a friends brand and have also completed a merch/portrait shoot for them also and this is something I am looking forward to continue doing next year.
A lot of this is posted on my Instagram where I make regular posts a few times a week. (www.instagram.com/dan_carr_photo)
This past year I have shot 16 rolls of 35mm film (9 color & 7 b&w)
I am hoping to shoot more film next year (I’m aiming for 2 rolls a month) and I plan to finally try my hand at developing my own b&w film, I have most of what I need I just need to find the time and get some chemicals.
I have a lot of ideas for a few different projects for next year but until then I would like to wish everyone who reads this blog a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!
I’ll leave you with a couple of my recent photos.
This gallery contains 3 photos.
I have been doing a fair bit of shooting down on the Manly foreshore lately, some of it on film and some on digital. I am still to get the film developed but I have processed the digital shots. This set was shot a couple of days ago. Its nice to be able to keep […]
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!
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.
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.
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.
