My Favourite Film Stocks

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!

Konica Minolta 40mm M-Rokkor f2 Review – My Favourite Lens of All Time

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!

Random Roll #3 – Olympus OZ10 + Fuji 400H

I recently received a little known camera from Japan, the Olympus OZ10 point and shoot.

One Day in Melbourne with the Contax TVS Digital

I took out my little Contax TVS Digital, one of my all time favourite cameras for a day of shooting in Melbourne's CBD and a few sneaky frames on the way to the train. It was a bit wet, rainy and overcast all day so I was only out for a few hours so there… Continue reading One Day in Melbourne with the Contax TVS Digital

Why I’m struggling with the 35mm focal length

I’m really trying to use a 35mm lens for street and daily photography, but for some reason I’m finding it super difficult to adjust my style. Similarly, making the subtle adjustments to my eye for this new (for me) focal length having always shot 40-50-or-60mm lenses, depending on system and crop factor, is proving to… Continue reading Why I’m struggling with the 35mm focal length
