Senior race day Isle of Man TT 2019, some pretty miserable weather leading up to the big day, races cut short etc. But who ever is in charge pulled it out of the bag, thanks.
This provided me with the opertunity to take out my new camera; the Bronica RF645 with 65mm f:4 lens and two rolls of Ilford FP4 Plus. Camera was set on aperture priority for one roll and P mode for the other.
I have been trying out film cameras for the last few years and never being fully happy with the results and thought this may be the same.
I have just had the opertunity to develop the two films, I used a stand development with Rodinal for 1 hour.
For some reason the film's curled so had to scan them and then flip them over in photoshop. Scanned on my Epson V700 with Better scanning 120 film holders and glass.
I'm blown away by what I receieved from this camera and lens, please check out the images below, comments more than welcome.
On the 29th December 2018 I have the great privalage to be asked to photohgraph the wedding of two very good friends. It was a wonderful, intimate day celebrating Mike and Julie surrounded by their close friends. The cermony was held in St. Marys of the Isle RC church in Douglas and the party was held in Bar George.
Early autumn morning on West Baldwin Road, Isle of Man, came accross this stand of trees shaped by years of wind. The fog was thick and the dawn just breaking.

While on walk aboutin Douglas in August 2016 with my Nikon FE2 and a roll of Ilford Delta 400 I came accross a potter working inside Douglas Market Hall, I could see the concentration and so with out intruding I managed to get an image I was so pleased with when I had developed the roll of film.
I found out who the potter was and sent a copy of the image to her and thought no more about it.
Then out of the blue this week the potter that was hard at work, Katy Mitchell, emailed me to ask if I would give permission for an Austrailian ceramics journal to print the image...wow someone wants to print my work. I replied and said I would be honoured.
Welcome, please look around, feel free to comment and if you like what you see please get in touch I would love to provide you with beautiful memories.
