PHOTOGRAPHY

35mm

Most of the photos you see in the collections below are taken on expired film. Using film which has gone past it's 'best before' date typically results in washed out colours, interesting colour shifts and/or exaggerated graininess. I typically cross-process all slide-type film. Cross-processing is the act of purposefully developing the film in the wrong chemicals to achieve drastic shifts in colours and other unexpected side effects. I also avoid any post-production to the photos, therefore most of the images you see in the collections below are direct scans of the film negatives with no editing, polishing up or any other post-production work done.
 
I have a number of 35mm cameras in my collection; the Nikon EM SLR, Diana F+ (with 35mm back), Zenit 3M and Lomo LC-A but mainly use the Canon AE-1 SLR (my favourite camera!).
 

MEDIUM FORMAT

Below are black and white and colour high resolution medium format photographs taken using the Hasselblad 500c/m medium format camera.
 
Due to the much larger surface area of medium format film, much more detail is captured resulting in very high 'resolution' photos (the megapixel equivilent of these photos if approximately 40-50 megapixels, although it is difficult to determine an wholey accurate equivilent). Film is also capable of delivering much more dynamic range than digital sensors. These two factors result in photos that are very detailed, and contain strong contrasts and more accurate colours. 
 
Due to the cost and having no other option than to develop 120 film myself,  these photos are approached from a much more 'traditional', compositional perspective compared to my 35mm film collections where I take free reign in experimentation.
