To find out how to develop film you can spend literally days trawling through Flickr discussion groups, blogs, and websites trying to find a definitive answer.I can save you a bit of time here – there is no definitive answer.Read more "The Dark Arts"
“Experience the power of pure photography with the Nikon Df” – so say’s Nikon’s website. As a long term Nikon user (first with film, then digital, and now with both film and digital) who loves the benefits that digital photography has given us but who also loves the simplicity of old film cameras the Nikon DF […]Read more "Nikon DF – Pure Photography?"
Back in May (I know I’ve taken ages to get these photos sorted) Haworth held its annual 1940s weekend where it seems that the whole world descends on the village in Yorkshire to celebrate that particular decade. The event itself is not without controversy since many of the people who come in costume come as […]Read more "Haworth 1940’s Weekend"
Unfortunately I haven’t won the lottery between my last Wishlist post and now and my horse at the Grand National led all the way only to tire two fences from home, therefore it is time for Wishlist Number 2 rather than Real Shopping Basket Number 2.

My enthusiasm for photography has never gone away, I think my enthusiasm for blogging/tweeting/social networking has waned though. Certainly I hardly spend any time on Facebook any more, […]Read more "Back Online!"
There are lots of good things about digital photography and I certainly wouldn’t be as enthusiastic or competent as I am now if I hadn’t moved from film to digital. The ability to experiment and instantly see the results without having to pay to get film developed is a godsend. However that same ability has […]Read more "Back To Basics"
You know I said in a previous post that there was no camera equipment that I really wanted? Sorry but I lied. Or rather let me clarify my previous position – there is no camera equipment that I want and can justify spending the money on. As good as digital cameras have been in allowing […]Read more "Object Of Desire"
