Sinharaja Rain Forest – Sri Lanka

Camera: Olympus Mju II Film: Kodax Tri-X awareofthevoid.com/ www.facebook.com/AwareOfTheVoid filmdev.org/recipe/show/8676

Camera: Olympus Mju II
Film: Kodax Tri-X

I spent most February in Sri Lanka. It was a trip filled with highlights and one of them was the trek through the Sinharaja Rain forest. I had managed to smash my Nikon F100 on the climb up Adams Peak so the point at which we had reached the rain forest I was shooting with my Olympus Muji II and what remained of my Kodax Tri-X.

These is some of my snap shots from inside the forest.

Slide Film Development Kit

In this video I am just showing how easy it is to mix up the working solution for slide film development. Its pretty simple but from reading posts on various websites this is one aspect of the process that seems to trouble people. Over the weekend I hopefully clear my backlog of slide film (E-6).

If you develop your own black and white film this process is very similar. The temperature for the chemistry is just a little warmer.

People Make Ballymun – Exhibition


My friend Jim Leonard has been taking photographs in his home town of Ballymun since the 1980’s. As part of the 50 years of Ballymun celebrations he has been invited to display some of his portraits in the Axis project space. 

There are 18 beautifully shot portraits on display that go some way to capture the unique spirt of this area.

First World Problem


Booo hoo,  I can’t post stuff to my blog because I have entirely filled my MacBook with photos and videos of awesome adventures and a life well lived.

Also I can’t find the time to delete content or work out how to resolve the issue.

Today is one of the days when I’m very glad that this is what a problem looks like in my life.

Have a great weekend everyone 😁

Last weekend we had some guests to stay with us in Dublin while they explored the city. We are all film photographers so we played the usual game of show and tell with our various cameras. This had me haul the Mamiya down from my dark room to pass around and play the game of “guess the weight”. I had a film back fitted and seemed to have a couple of shots left on the roll so I made some portraits.

Every time I develop film from this camera I am delighted with the results. Looking in the view finder makes the whole world look like the set from a movie. I enjoy the massive clear negatives that it provides and printing the big in the darkroom is an utter joy. This is a pretty random selection of shots that I have taken with this camera and I’m mostly posting these to motivate myself to bring this camera out more often.

Despite the weight of the beast I love the results.

I have started to make an effort with my portraits of strangers project again.  These two were sitting having lunch in Dublin and asked me to take their picture. I was delighted to be asked and as soon as I had snapped a shot with their iPhone I could take one with my camera. They asked how should they pose and I just told them to relax. They got a fit of the giggles and I got this shot. We were under the canopy of the restaurant so light was poor. This was shot handheld at 1/30 sec. Considering I was my first outing with this camera I am pleased with the result.
