By the coast pt. 2

This should my final post for a few days as I don't have any other work that is really edited. I am however expecting another roll of film to be returned this week.




































All apart from the final image are taken on:
Bronica ETRSi with a 75mm lens
F/16 or F/22
Fuji Pro160S

Final image:
Mamiya 6MF rangefinder with a 75mm F/3.5 lens

Fuji Pro160S

Somewhere between Port Carlisle and Anthorn.
































Bronica ETRSi 75mm Zenza (something)
F/16 or F/22
Fuji Pro160S

I have a feeling people will eventually get bored of looking at 'seascape' photographs, I don't think I'll tire of taking them though. I think I need to work a bit harder on my compositions, so that all of the horizons are at the same height (maybe?).
I also need to try to find a setting when scanning the negatives so that I can get similar results (in the colours).

Easter '09















Bronica ETRSi with 50mm Pe lens(?)
I imagine something like f/2.8 or f/3.5
Fuji Pro160S

Taken some time around last easter when I got lost on what turned out to be a 10 mile round trip.
Since taking this I have made a habbit of getting lost when I go walking, though I have now realised that I take these photographs as some sort of reminder, or marker to remind me for the next time I visit.

Black and White (large format failure)

















Wista 45 90(ish?)mm lens
f/11
Ilford Delta 100

My 2nd real attempt at photographing during the day using black and white large format film. This was just a test shot to remind myself how to use the combi-plan large format developing tank.

I asked for some advice from the technician who said that I agitate the film too much and that I was going to be using too much chemistry.
(I think I have proven that I shouldn't have listened to him, and that I should have found the instructions on the internet beforehand)

Atleast I know for next time. I am currently trying to make this 'tide mark' a little less noticable using a gradient tool in lightroom that one of my friends told me about.

Black and white




















All taken with a Mamiya 6MF with 75mm f/3.5 lens
Mostly using f/16
Ilford Hp5
 
My first real attempt at taking black and white photos in a while. 
I was looking at debris left behind by the floods (that hit the local area at the end of last year) particuarly at different shapes and textures.
