Duxford Airshow

In October we went to the last air show of 2009 at Duxford. These pictures were taken using the 80-200 f4 lens on 400asa fuji film. When I first looked at the prints I was a bit disappointed as the graining was really bad and scanning made it worse. However knocking the colour out and some careful cropping I ended up with some images with a really nice vintage feel.

Pictures From Norfolk

Here some pictures I took up in Wells-next-the-Sea as usual Velvia lived up to its reputation. some fantastic colours and lovely fine grain. Most of these were taken using the 80-200 f4 lens.

First Shots With Velvia

Durdle Door
Nikon FM, Clubman 28mm, f8@1/125s ISO 50, Fuji Velvia

Well, I finally plucked up the courage to try out some slide film and got my self 4 rolls of the famous Fuji Velvia 50. This is the favorite film of many of the worlds landscape photographers for intense colours and sharpness, it is a lot slower than I am used to at ISO50 I normally shoot with ISO200 and you have to be spot on with your exposure but the results when you get it right are amazing.
