A big tree by Clumber Lake

Adox Silvermax has quite a pleasant grain to it. It’s more prominent in this shot because it was a little underexposed. The clouds ‘pop’ nicely in the sky thanks to the red filter too.

High contrast house

I shot a roll of Adox Silvermax recently. I’ve shot this before and had lovely results, but the negatives for this roll came back pretty thin. Now, I’ve had this occur a few times with different films, and I tend to like the high contrast look I get from the underexposed results – as I do with today’s photo.

Still, I’d rather they’d come out properly exposed. Maybe I need to change the battery in the camera?

At the top of the foodchain

I spotted someone in a T-Rex costume amongst the crowds in the Winter Gardens the other week. I took a couple of photos, both of which are very similar – one was with my F70, 50mm f/1.8 & some expired Superia 100 (rated at 64asa), which suffers a little from camera shake as I had to use a pretty slow shutter; and then this one, which was taken with my Olympus 35 RC. Thanks to the Tri-X I was using in the camera, I got a sharper result (I probably shot this at 1/60th).
