Mike returns for his second guest post, this time focusing on The World Cup In Dumbo viewing party that he happened to stumble upon. With Baci and his Fuji in toe he truly captured the emotion of the World Cup (but in Brooklyn, obviously).
Held annually since 2012, “Shot in The Heart of Melbourne” or SITHOM is a Street Photography and Photojournalism exhibition that celebrates the decisive, and often indecisive, but always graceful moments that occur within our gritty, yet beautiful city.
I took a long-ish drive into the Macedon Ranges to shoot some landscapes, some old mid-century buildings and a bunch of sheep. Very different from the usual fare on the channel but it was fun anyway! This video contains the best shots from two rolls of Fujifilm 160NS and a nice preview of the Macedon region in Victoria, Australia.
JC heads back into Melbourne’s Chinatown with his tiny Ricoh GR to shoot some afternoon street. You’ll see all the […]
In this episode I wandered around the Maribyrnong River in Melbourne's North-West on a nice sunny afternoon. With my trusty Leica M9 + 40mm M-Rokkor I just shot the everyday snapshots that I'd take on an afternoon in the sun, with my camera.
JC heads into the Queen Victoria Market for some afternoon shooting with his M9 and the legendary 40mm M-Rokkor. Markets […]
The Contax TVS Digital is a high-end compact camera within the legendary T range and the only digital model of the group. Boasting a massive 1/1.8", 5 Megapixel CCD sensor this little titanium box was one of the last models pumped out of the Kyocera factories sporting the Contax badge. In 2002 I was just barely talking to girls and trying to figure out how to pass my Math classes, so this little Contax was WAAAAY off my radar when it was released.
JC wanders around an iconic abandoned wheat silo in Geelong, Victoria with his Contax G2 and the legendary 28mm Biogon f/2. This particular silo has some artwork on the side by Rone, which I missed footage of, but got some nice shots in the end. The location is pretty obvious and close to the road, but once you're in it has a grand feel to it.
This week's guest post comes from one of my favourite photographers out of the UK, Martin aka RJW INC. He explores the relationship between Film and Digital photography in a world where many align themselves to only one approach. Martin assesses how it's possible to be deeply involved in both and that conditions should lead your decision on which medium to use.
JC heads back into Melbourne's CBD with his tiny Ricoh GR to tour some of the iconic laneways early in the morning. You'll see all the results, even the terrible ones!
JC heads into Melbourne's busy CBD during his lunch break to shoot a roll of Ilford HP5 400 with his Contax G2 on the street.
The old saying goes a picture tells a thousand words. Its hard to capture the full story in one photograph however some of the best images capture a hint of it. A photograph tells you a lot about the person who clicked the shutter.
The near weightless Ricoh R10, produced in collaboration with Elle Magazine in 2002 could be one of the last Ricoh point and shoot fun boxes created.
I reached out to someone I connected with on Instagram @mikeyboards. We connected over our shared obsession for taking photos of strangers on the streets, how awkward it can be and how we approach it. He shares how he got started making photos on the streets of New York City with his dog, Baci.
We wanted to know how a modern, mid-range DSLR would stack up against a 1990s era film point and shoot at the same location, shooting the same things. So, we took both cameras to an abandoned former school and orphanage in Ballarat to see how they'd go! The results are surprising!
The little plastic fantastic Olympus OZ-10 or AF-10 Mini kinda looks like an overweight Mju, with a 35mm f4.5 lens rather than the well known 35mm f3.5. To be perfectly honest? It's kinda a piece of junk but at the same time it's also kinda heroic.
