Street Photography in New York & DC, 2018

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.

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!

White Night 2018 with the Ricoh GR

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.

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

It’s little beauty and a true hidden gem of the Olympus compact line of the mid-1990s

Random Roll #1 – Nikon Zoom 310 AF + Fuji Color 200

I recently took out one of my little point and shoots across some of the streets of Melbourne. The Nikon Zoom 310 AF is solid performer, super loud but a solid 6-7/10ish. Like I've said in the past the lens isn't exactly super sharp, nor is it incredibly soft. Totally middle of the road and totally… Continue reading Random Roll #1 – Nikon Zoom 310 AF + Fuji Color 200

Abandoned Petrol Station, Maribyrnong

I drive past this beat to shit old and now long abandoned Petrol Station in Maribyrnong every other week. Finally, after debating whether or not I'd get stabbed by a meth-head I decided to check it out. All shots taken on my Contax TVS with Fuji 400h. I only just got the little film Contax… Continue reading Abandoned Petrol Station, Maribyrnong
