Having just got hold of a Nikon F5 after many years of being tempted, here a few pictures from a weekend trip to Katoomba and surrounds.
To help with expanding this site, if you are a professional photographic laboratory who offers E6 film processing please feel free to get in touch so I can add you to the list. This way, no matter where you are in Australia you can find your closest developer.
Due to an interest in the images I have produced, I will start to offer photographic prints and canvas prints of your favourite ones. If theres one you’d like on your wall, simply get in touch!
30 years after Columbia first flew, the shuttle Atlantis is set to lift off from Cape Canaveral on July the 8th for the final flight of the program. Albeit weather permitting. The shuttles have contributed to science, exploration, engineering and nearly every field of study in so many ways. They have been an icon for space travel, performing their duties routinely for three decades despite there being nothing routine about their missions. But why go into space? Well, to take picture of course! The harsh elementary environment of space has provided us with some of the most stunning images. The initial development of modern cameras can also be attributed to the needs of NASA and its astronauts. Given this, I have written a brief article on the history of Nikon in space to highlight the achievements made.
Finally the results from my first roll of Kodak Ektachrome are back and in my hands! They look fantastic with wild vivid colours and seem to be stable over longer exposures. The colours are not quite as saturated as Velvia 50, particularily reds but that’s expected. I would certainly have no problem using this film again under almost any lighting.
Little Sugarloaf Rock as the sun sets. A happy place that one day I will show to someone who has always made me smile.
Fuji Velvia has, for many years now, always been the number one choice of reversal film users. However, lets not forget that Kodak started it all off long before. The choice between the two usually calls for a good argument between photographers. All my pictures thus far have been on Fujifilm. That is until I bought my first roll of Kodak Ektachrome E100VS. Its currently in the camera so wait out on the results!
