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.
This is the sort of advice I wish I had been given years ago! Spending time developing your skills shooting faces, expressions and gestures while not wussing out shooting backs definitely makes better street photography. Your photographs are richer, more interesting and connect with your audience much better. This short guide will help you overcome the fear!
I grew up in Ballarat and since moving away, I always try to make it back home to explore. This photo series covers the sights, nooks, crannies and hot spots that make up this oddball heritage listing obsessed town. There's some street, some urban, some documentary and landscape in an effort to give you a glimpse of Ballarat from my point of view.
Early in the North American winter of 2018, I was lucky enough to spend a couple of weeks in NYC and Washington D.C. While there, I shot roughly twenty rolls of film mostly Kodak Portra 400, Fujifilm Superia 400 and Ilford HP5.
Since beginning my switch to film in mid-2017, I've tried a handful of different film stocks from budget to pro in a variety of cameras. This short list are my favourites to shoot street and any other kind of photography!
This short project was shot over a few weekends at the famous and during the summer months often crowded Torquay Surf Beach. It examines this beautiful location's appeal to local, tourist and weekender alike through exposing the surf and sun culture mixed with documenting the crowds on the beach street style. It was shot entirely on a plastic fantastic Olympus 35mm point and shoot loaded with cheap Fujifilm Superia XTRA 400 film.
I was lucky enough to head into Melbourne's CBD to check out White Night, the free festival that Melbourne puts on where they project, colourise and generally sex up key buildings around the place. It was crazy packed and allowed me to get a couple of street snaps while out and about.
The 40mm M-Rokkor lens is a real hidden gem of true Leica pedigree, even if it wears a Minolta badge. It's sharp, it's moody and has a tiny focus throw enabling you to focus with a rangefinder very, very quickly. It's my favourite lens ever!
I recently received a little known camera from Japan, the Olympus OZ10 point and shoot. Continuing my obsession with point and shoot film cameras I picked this little plastic fantastic up for the $AUD equivalent of a Red Bull and a meat pie. It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s
I’ve been hanging onto a few HP5 rolls, ready to be shot on my badass little Contax TVS which only […]
