Wonderful photographer

How I would love to be able to produce work like Carol Hicks....
Two samples of her work - but a visit to her website is worthwhile. http://carolhicks.co.uk/
I especially like her vegetables.

Strange Territories Revisited

Last year's show at NMIT was so successful we are doing a second one - Strange Territories Revisited.
This year we did not have Elaine with us to create the invitation so I did it.
It has been sent off for printing so we will distribute them in a few weeks time.
Opening March 25th 6-8pm.
Mark the diary!

First foray into medium format cameras

This is the camera I was introduced to last week - along with a light meter - for the first time.
Medium format film is bigger than 35mm film, has no sprockets and is more of a challenge to load. They are a challenge to use - but can produce beautiful superb black and white images.

Week one we were sent off to shoot a roll of film around the TAFE grounds.
Then we had to develop it in the dark room.
Today I printed three of my better ones at around A4 size.

Needless to say I am pretty pleased with the exposure and so forth considering there is nothing automatic on these old medium format cameras! And it was my first encounter with the light meter - complicated things they are.....

Could not resist the obvious industrial subject.

A roof - mainly for the contrast light and shadow

This is a shy apprentice in the carpentry school.

Herring Island

Visit to Herring Island in the middle of the Yarra. The little punt is very efficient.
