I've been trying to experiment with my photography, and wanted to do some long exposure shots. My fumblings can be found on Flickr as usual.

I have also been fiddling with my blog template, it will likely change more pretty soon as i get to grips with it.

The First Film

I was a tad relieved to see that my first roll of film from the Zenit actually came out ok, a little on the over-exposed side but I tidied things up in Photoshop. I actually had a nightmare last night that I was handed the film with the words 'BAD FILM' stamped on the side! I wondered up to dartmoor the other day and got some shots of the ponies just as a tester to see how things went. No problems with the camera it seems, but the manual aperture setting will take a bit of getting used to.

I want to give portrait photography a go, especially with 35mm, so thats probably what the next film will be wasted on. I have posted some of the pics on Carbonmade for your viewing pleasure.

I had been wondering the charity shops of Winchester for weeks, on the look out for an old manual SLR. Nothing. Then when I came back to Devon for the summer holidays, luck led me to wonder into a charity shop in paignton when I was there for the day. I found this old knackered case on one of the shelves and sure enough, it was a manual SLR!! wahey! It seems to be in working order, I have taken a film with it and will have to wait and find out whether the pics will come out.
