Shooting From the Hip

I haven’t had much of a chance to go out shooting lately and to be perfectly honest I’m feeling a bit rusty.

Need to brush up on my distances by eye 🙂

GCSB Bill Protest Wellington Part 3… The Final

Last post from the GCSB protest on last weekend in Wellington.

These ones were taken on a Nikon FG20 which I bought from an Op Shop for $35. The film is also 8 years expired which gives it a bit of flaring and blocking out of the blacks.

I quite liked the effect as its not your usual super sharp, super well exposed documentary photos we are use to seeing.

GCSB Bill Protest Wellington

Well it looks like its been a while since I have posted anything…

I went to the GCSB Protest in Wellington last Saturday along with my trusty Rolleiflex 🙂 Only just started scanning the shots today and so far this one stands out…

In hindsight it is a bit weird that I went to a protest about being watched and listened in on… Street photographer and all 🙂

Two Ladies Talking

Still haven’t been getting out street shooting lately but taking the occasional shot when I do get into town… In the process of setting up a studio in the double garage under the house so will be interesting to see what come of it all. Hopefully going to bust out the 4×5 for some large format goodness 🙂

Whats The Time

Its been a while since I have been out street shooting (or even shooting at all) and I am surprised how out of practice I really am…

Must get out more!!

Chair Parking

Ever wondered what to do when you are out walking your chair and you have to quickly duck in somewhere? Apparently the best place to leave it is your friendly neighbourhood bike park 🙂

Hobbit World Premiere (Slightly Delayed)

This shows about how far behind the times I am at the moment with film developing and scanning…

These are from the World Premier of The Hobbit movie which happened here in Wellington. I didnt get to actually go when anyone was on the red carpet but went earlier in the day to catch the people who had staked their spots early.

Photgraphy For Good Not Evil

Recently I submitted a framed photo for the Phil Jacobs Benefit . Phil is one of the few camera repair people left in Wellington and sadly he has become seriously sick which has put a major financial strain on his family.

I have had my Rolleiflex fixed by Phil on numerous occasions and he has always gone out of his way to help me out.

They had a live auction last Friday for some of the prints and the rest have gone on TradeMe (NZ equivalent of Ebay).

Anyway if you want to buy a nice framed, darkroom printed shot of one of the founding fathers of Wellington’s statue overseeing repairs done to a street light then now is your chance, unfortunately I think bidding is restricted to NZ only… Anyway the auction is Here go have a look 🙂

Flower Shooter

While waiting for another time Lapse to complete I shot this guy who later came up and showed me his picture… I have to say I was impressed… It was the most original shot I saw being taken in the couple of hours I was there 🙂
