I decided to use my underwater camera in the swimming pool at Center Parcs. It’s a bit of fun, even if it’s not the best camera in the world. We also took the camera on the boating lake, in case it got dropped in the water.Read more "Underwater at Center Parcs"
This week, Hannah and I stayed in at Center Parcs in Longleat forest. One of the nearest attractions is Longleat Safari park. I’m not an animal expert but I do admire their beauty, so naturally I took my camera. I ended up taking over a thousand pictures of creatures great and small, ranging from small […]Read more "Longleat Safari Park"

I don’t (yet) have the capability to process slides in my darkroom so I decided to shoot a couple of rolls and send them away to a lab to see if I liked the results. Turns out I love the results.

Usually the light hits the front face of the film which is light-sensitive, and the orange base doesn’t play a part in the picture […]Read more "Redscale"
I don’t normally go around taking pictures of cheerleaders, but today the University of Bristol hosted an Olympic-themed street party to celebrate Universities Week and to showcase some sporting talent. I thought the whole event was a bit lame – no real sports displays, just a few people playing a variety of sports messing about in the […]Read more "Cheerleaders"
