Nikon F100

I had a Nikon F100 about three years ago. I loved it. Shot with it. And finally sold it, as it was cumbersome to shoot with on the street. Jump forward three years and I regret ever selling it. It was brilliant. Fast autofocus. Sharp images. Perfect for taking snaps of an infant puttering around. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Leica. I use it all the time. But it’s hard shooting manual at times with a kid that

Sunset near Landmannalaugar

Iceland is a magical place. I’ve written about it before and only now am I slowly getting through images I shot last October. Yes it’s taken me around a year to get through them. This was shot quickly on my iPhone 6s using the Lightroom app to capture RAW and finally graded in Davinci Resolve. Stay tuned. More to come.

On The Street: The Art of Game Photography

Game photography is starting to emerge more and more each year. There are games like The Last of Us, Uncharted 4, and most recently Horizon Zero Dawn. I think its a great way for people to experiment with their style. To try out new looks or creative compositions. Without the worry of screwing something up. But will it make you better on the street or in your documentary work? Probably not. Will it help you interact with others? Definitely not.

Travelogue: Marrakesh Souk

Once we finally arrived in the Souk in Marrakesh we began to explore. Down the narrow alleys with tourists lining the shops and store owners rallying people. This city is alive. Even at 11pm. Crazy. While browsing the shops you have to pay attention to countless motorbikes blindly coming around corners. This is one of the many pictures I took here. Have a listen and feel free to leave your feedback or comments below. TW

Morocco

This is a short post. I’ll be posting more images here and Travelogues about Morocco within the coming weeks. I’m posting this image as it’s one of the first pictures I took in the Sahara. Clean… Windswept Sands… And sand blowing towards camera. Everything I envisioned the Sahara to be. I got many more opportunities to take pictures here over the course of 4 days and I can’t wait to share them. Stay tuned. -Dominic

Rant: Don’t let others influence your lens purchases

I’ve been seeing to many articles published recently that are suggesting what lenses individuals should purchase. It’s more than likely click bate. Maybe it’s to get Amazon or B&H affiliate links. But don’t fall for the trap. Those of us shooting for a while now have gone through this bullshit. ‘Wow there’s this new ‘enter brand name here’ lens. It’s so much better and sharper than the lens from two years ago’. Of course we fall for it. And end

Another Purge

A while ago I wrote about purging some social media accounts. Titled “Goodbye Tumblr”. I got rid of, obviously Tumblr, Facebook, Eyeem and at the time I was debating getting rid of Ello. Remember that social network? It’s been a bit of a weird year, since I thought at one point that going back to Flickr and Eyeem might be a good idea. But honestly, it’s just making me worry about posting on it. I keep forgetting. Then I have

Rant: A Monumental Screw Up

This happens to the best of us. We shoot film. We get comfortable with how we shoot and develop. Then we forget. How long have those chemicals been sitting there? Can’t be that long. Don’t think I processed to many rolls through it. Then you take the dive. Develop two rolls and realize you screwed up! When you pull the negatives out of the tank. Queue Wah Wah sound! This is what happened to me. Two rolls of cinema film

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. Which apparently now is discontinued. When it comes to daylight balanced film I’ve always struggled a little. Whenever I shot it at 200ASA I’ve found that the images tended to sway too much into the yellow/red and even after post processing, I was never really happy with the palette it
