Nikon F5, Ilford Delta 3200 ISO Film.
Here goes some shots from last weekends shoot with Melissa, Alicia and Renee.
These are from my F5 that was loaded with Ilford Delta 3200 Film and were possibly the only images that really looked like I saw them in my head. I only started using it near the end of the shoot rather than reloading my RZ67 and Rolleiflex.
Sometimes you just cant really beat using film 🙂

When I was looking through my film in the fridge preparing to go away for 4 weeks holiday I noticed one roll had 9 shots off it already (a big 9 was scrawled on the outside of the film cassette). I ended up using the rest of the film a few weeks ago and when I got it developed I found some picture from the rugby 7’s from maybe 4 years ago.
Anyway here goes a few of them. Gotta love film for getting surprises 🙂
Some shots from a few weeks back at an abandoned factory.
Yay I managed to make my computer work again!
I was just getting my camera out of its bag when these two danced past which is why they aren’t closer… Its been that kind of week 🙂
Make New Stuff With Your Old Stuff
I’ve been playing around with some time lapse stuff lately and all the good looking videos use a movement thing with them…
So I thought “I have lots of photo stuff, I wonder if I can make my own”
Hence the creation below. Its my own custom time lapse movement device. Its made from Tripod, Macro rail, monopod head and a super clamp for a counter balance.
It has a handle in the back that you have to turn manually and its a little jerky but with a bit of practice it might be cool 🙂 The F5 was there because I needed my D90 to shoot this shot.
See below for test video

Another shoot with Bev Short for her NZ Tattoo project. This one was using the storeroom in the New Zealand Portrait Gallery here in Wellington as a set and we got to have it for a couple of days so things wouldn’t be too hectic especially since we were basically building a set for the shoot.
The main element of the set was the packing crate which I ended up making (and then destroying). The day I took the finished crate (unbroken) to Bevs we found out that breaking it was going to be a bit problematic. No matter how hard I stomped on the thing it just wouldn’t break, next came the hammer (that was possibly the smallest hammer I have ever seen) and after about 15 minutes it was starting to look a bit more demolished, although I managed to pull a muscle in my shoulder doing it (must be getting old).
Since this shoot was going to be inside over two days I thought it would be fun to set up my D90 as a time lapse camera to show what goes on (the video is done and just getting a custom music track from my friend Ben Capp) and should be up later this week 🙂 Its the entire photoshoot from empty storeroom to empty storeroom in 3 minutes.
The first day was building the set and initial lighting set-up which went pretty smoothly complete with fake dust and occasional issues with light bulbs.
Day two and Gillian Parkinson (model) and Matt Middleton (make-up) turned up which gave me some time to take some shots of everything.

More old stuff… This was taken at the end of the ACDC concert at the stadium in Wellington.
These two guys were heckling me as I was taking photos… In an amusing way not a bad way 🙂
I haven’t been out shooting much at the moment mostly due to weather and having a cold so I thought I would re-post a picture from a few years ago.
This is one of the first shots I got after I decided to become a street photographer and always carry my camera around with me… After this I was pretty much hooked! 🙂
Today I am heading to a darkroom for 10 hours of printing madness… Wish me luck 🙂
This is a shot I took last time I was there in August 2010… Its been a while.
While you walk past underneath… He watches…
