I thought I would post a few photos that have come out of the darkroom in the last couple of days. The first one is of Mangawai heads, about a hour and a half north of Auckland on the east coast. It was shot at about 6.30-7AM on a particularly clear skied day. A mate Jason is out there getting a few reelers whilst I finish a film.

This is Jase and his lady becks. It wasn’t particularly big that day so he was out on the longboard, it’s always interesting to switch it up a bit.

Pastel brown soil. Granny smith red leaves. The sun edges closer to the horizon and warms the scene. It’s almost a shame to have shot this in monochrome, it does mean however your eyes focus on the texture and the shape rather than the colour. This was shot on the Pentax with 100ISO Rollei.

    Very nice work here. I am also a fan of black and white photography becuase of the greater challenge it entails. I really like your opening pitcure the entire composition fascinates me. And I applaud your use of film.
