melbourne

Some photos from a recent trip to Melbourne. I shot the trip on 35mm film using a mix of Cinestill 50D and Fuji Superia 200. I used a Contax T2, which is an amazing compact camera – small, lightweight, accurate and exceedingly easy to use.

polaroids from byron bay

I have recently been experimenting with old polaroid cameras. They can be found easily on Ebay for pocket money (a rich kids pocket money) and offer a great opportunity to explore another genre of photography.

I grabbed myself a Polaroid Spectra AF and some Impossible Project Spectra film from the excellent Film Never Die shop and snapped a few shots on a recent visit to Byron Bay. There is something great about the one of a kind prints that polaroid cameras offer, flaws and all.

There are a few things you have to take into consideration with Polaroid film – most notably, temperature. In temperatures above 28 celsius prints can take on an orange/red cast like in the beach shot below. I actually quite like the effect.
