I managed to cop a freebie ticket to the 2018 AFL Grand Final between Collingwood and West Coast. While I had no vested interest in either team winning, Collingwood fans are insufferable at the best of times so watching their team fail in front of them was the ultimate prize. I captured some of the action inside the MCG, but there was more action outside after the game. Shot with my Ricoh GR and converted to Black & White for justice.
Went out with my trusty little Ricoh R10 in this dodgy and beat to hell abandoned house, it’s actually just down the street from my house so the commute was easy. I’ve been meaning to shoot it before they knock it down which happens pretty regularly in my area. So, I thought I’d check it out and shoot some film of course!
Why is there so much mystery surrounding what happens to the digital scans of our negatives? The digital footprint of the modern film shooter is often never spoken about, JC explores his thoughts on what film shooters should be doing with their digitised negatives once they return from the lab.
Took the Bronica RF 645 out for a Medium Format street session in Richmond. I headed to Victoria Street where there's a pretty sweet Vietnamese ex-pat community along the tram line. This video showcases the strength of T-Max 400, it's such a nice fine grain B+W film that I'm really beginning to prefer it over HP5+.
With my new (to me) Bronica RF 645 medium format rangefinder in toe, I explored an old abandoned farm house on Melbourne's outskirts. Scared some kangaroos, checked out the old sheering shed and found a burned out fridge. Shot on Ilford HP5 400 and you'll see all 16 medium format 645 frames, even the terrible ones!
