On The Street: Crisis

We all go through a photographic crisis at some point or another. When we start taking pictures, we might be focused on Street Photography or Landscape or portraits. But at some point our interest in what we are photographing dwindles, and we need to explore new avenues to keep motivated and inspired by our work.

It’s Cloudy in 2014… Wait… What?

The way the new Leica 35mm Summicron-M f/2 ASPH renders the out of focus areas, is incredible. I just love it.

Kodak 5207 250D

Ever since I started shooting Cinema film I’ve enjoyed the colour tones it gives me. I use Tungsten balanced film primarily and Kodak 5230 500T is by far my favourite.
