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.
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!
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 into the Queen Victoria Market for some afternoon shooting with his M9 and the legendary 40mm M-Rokkor. Markets make a great location to practice shooting, even if you're making rubbish photographs. So get out there! You'll see all the results, even the terrible ones! Video Results
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.
