A Year Of Photography With A Rolleiflex

Well 2011 is finally over, its been a pretty good year, Ive had the usual ups and downs but have managed to take quite a few images.

Here are some highlights from Rollei and I in 2011… Enjoy πŸ™‚

We walked the streets when no one else was around…

…and went to some events.

We traveled to Auckland…

…and did some assisting.

Sometimes we walked for hours and only took a single shot…

… and sometimes we shot a whole roll of film in under 30 minutes.

We went shooting in the rain…

…and when it was too dark to see the numbers on the dials.

Sometimes we were a little too slow…

…but sometimes our timing was bang on.

We self published a book on street photography…

…and even sold a few copies…You can see itΒ  HERE

We took photos of people taking photos, but never photos of people taking photos of people taking photos.

We finally broke through the mental barrier of going up to people in the street and asking to take their photo, not one person said no.

Sometimes we went to different places to shoot…

…and sometimes things happened right outside our door.

We went urban exploring with friends…

…and found some pretty cool places…

…which led to some more assisting.

Sometimes we waited to get the shot…

…but mostly we just wandered around aimlessly and watched for stuff to happen…

…and happen it did…

…sometimes it was pretty random…

…sometimes it was really random…

…but it was all good…

Yup… all in all its been a pretty good year.

Bring on 2012!

All images shot on Rolleiflex 2.8 E
