A Digital Camera Photographed with a Film Camera
film

It’s become a reflex action now. Every time I put some film in an old camera, I take a couple of shots of my digital for reasons of irony, as well as for testing.
This was one of the first shots I took with my Canon EOS 1000FN with the crappy kit lens. As I’ve written elsewhere, I’m not very impressed with the results. The camera body of the Canon is fine (lightweight and comfortable to hold) with a good range of functions, but the picture quality is no better than a cheap point n’ shoot. With a prime lens I’m sure it would be fine, but I simply can’t justify the expense of buying one.
The Fujifilm Finepix s5800 in the photo still gets plenty of use, but I’m definitely leaning towards using 35mm for most of my snapshots.
The print of this image is significantly milkier than this scan. Not sure why.

I’ve seen Actress www.myspace.com/actresskhz twice now and he never EVER looks up to his audience. He’s so locked into his own groove. His album Splazsh is one of the best albums of 2010 IMHO.Sadly his gig during Het Kabinet was hampered by a bad soundsystem. It didn’t help that Actress played a pitch dark ‘take-no-prisoners’ live set. But it had some brilliant moments and lovely sharp flavors.

Actress
actress

I’ve seen Actress www.myspace.com/actresskhz twice now and he never EVER looks up to his audience. He’s so locked into his own groove. His album Splazsh is one of the best albums of 2010 IMHO.Sadly his gig during Het Kabinet was hampered by a bad soundsystem. It didn’t help that Actress played a pitch dark ‘take-no-prisoners’ live set. But it had some brilliant moments and lovely sharp flavors.
For the first time Dekmantel organised a mini-festival, called Het Kabinet. Two days of leftfield dance music, art and performances in the intimate East-Amsterdam theatre Studio K.
I wrote a review for DJ Broadcast. You’ll find it here

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An actor, actress, player or rarely thespian (see terminology) is a person who acts in a dramatic production and who works in film, television, theatre, or radio in that capacity. The ancient Greek word for an actor, ὑποκριτής (hypokrites), when rendered as a verb means "to interpret";[1] in this sense, an actor is one who interprets a dramatic character.[

A Digital Camera Photographed with a Film Camera
film

It’s become a reflex action now. Every time I put some film in an old camera, I take a couple of shots of my digital for reasons of irony, as well as for testing.
This was one of the first shots I took with my Canon EOS 1000FN with the crappy kit lens. As I’ve written elsewhere, I’m not very impressed with the results. The camera body of the Canon is fine (lightweight and comfortable to hold) with a good range of functions, but the picture quality is no better than a cheap point n’ shoot. With a prime lens I’m sure it would be fine, but I simply can’t justify the expense of buying one.
The Fujifilm Finepix s5800 in the photo still gets plenty of use, but I’m definitely leaning towards using 35mm for most of my snapshots.
The print of this image is significantly milkier than this scan. Not sure why.

Camera: Canon EOS 1000FN
Lens: Canon EF 35-80mm 1:4-5.6 III
Film: Kodak Gold, ISO 200, expired 11/08.

film night | self portrait
film

This is my first self portrait in nearly two years, can’t believe its been so long! It came about after seeing a photo on flickr a few weeks ago, I just loved the idea and wanted to try for myself; so I got in touch with the photographer toughkidcst to ask if he would mind me recreating the shot, he was a really nice guy and said yes :)

I pretty much used my whole collection to create this shot just over 300 DVD’s and Blu-rays and a couple of hours to set it up. Please feel free to add notes, I would love to hear about everyone else’s favourite films.

I have also been tagged a few times over the last two years, but never had chance to actually do it… so here are 10 things you might not know about me:

1. I love the country but live in the city (Manchester),
2. I spent most of my childhood playing the trading card game Magic the Gathering. They now
sit at home in a box but I refuse to sell them even though I could probably buy the 70-200 f/2.8 lens I really want.
3. I worry about pretty much everything.
4. I don’t like living on my own but strangely really like time to myself.
5. I really enjoy my job and wouldn’t want to do anything else…
6. …but I dream of travelling the world taking photos, and might just do it one day but not as a job.
7. I love a Cat and a dog, luckily they get on.
8. My favourite foods are steak, oreo’s and pineapple (not together).
9. I am a true flickr addict but you probably already new that.
10. My most interesting photo fact is that Rob Ford founder of FWA has one of my photos on the wall of his house!
