It's Foggy Out.

Lots of lovely foggy photos today :)
It snowed the tiniest amount this morning while I was at work. I'm really hoping it snows more! Speaking of work, it's going really well. I'm getting great feedback and seem to be progressing at a good rate, considering I knew absolutely nothing about financial services before I started and now feel like an expert! Haha doesn't mean I'm giving up on my dream of being a graphic designer, but it's hard to think of that right now because I got paid today and I know the only way into a design career is unpaid internships :(  we'll see what the future holds, at least I feel a bit more secure now.

Warm Me Up.

Some nice, cosy, warm photos today, all from a Kodak FunSaver disposable camera :) they look so inviting when it's as cold as it is right now (and yes some of them are from christmas!)

My carling soda can camera came today, so I think I'll take it out with me later to try it out. I still haven't bought any film for my new Diana F+ but I will do, once I get paid on tuesday!

At Last!

A freshly scanned (and developed) set of prints just uploaded to my Flickr!

Most of these are from a cheap and crappy disposable camera I got from the 99p store, so there were only actually about 8 photos that came out from the whole lot, and there's a hell of a grain to them! Anything shot inside didn't work so clearly the key with these cameras is to shoot outside (I know it does actually say that on the camera but you can usually get away with it)

Great film grain on this one!

This is from my new Praktica L2. It works wonderfully, there's some really great quality photos in the set that I'll upload the rest of soon.

New Cameras Coming My Way!

I mentioned in an earlier post that my dad bought me a camera for my birthday, a Praktica L2, and well, so did a few other people!

My brothers bought me this:
It arrived this morning and I'm very excited to try it out, but with being at work during all the daylight hours of the week, I haven't even been able to test the Praktica out yet, so it may have to wait :(

My lovely, lovely friends bought me my first Diana camera (have a look at my wishlist on the right hand side, there's a lot more that I want!) Again it'll have to wait to be tried out, but mainly because this camera uses 120 film and I haven't got any.

I then went a little crazy on ebay, and bought three more cameras! My mum is starting to despair, asking why I need so many cameras, but I just keep telling her it's a hobby, I want to collect them and they all do different things anyway!
This I bought from holga_universal on ebay, and I got it in black. This one was quite pricy for me, but I'm earning now and I'm excited to try out the filters!

This camera I have no idea when I'm going to use, but I thought it was fun! I got it from this seller on ebay, and it also comes in a few other colours.

Finally I bid on and won this novelty can shaped camera. Again just a bit of fun, I thought it was a bit different!

One of the ebay cameras came in the post today but we have a ridiculously small postbox and no one was in to answer the door so it's gone back to the Royal Mail depot. I hate that you have to wait 24 hours before collecting, because that means monday, everyone's at work all week so I'm not going to get it until next weekend now :(

My camera shelf is pretty full now, and this is before the arrival of the ebay cameras! I may have to get another shelf :S

Winter's Not Leaving.

It feels weird to be posting this seeing as it's sunny outside, but it's been so ridiculously cold this week that snow would be the only thing that would make it worth it. Not that I'd be able to enjoy it because I'm now at work everyday!

However, in honour of the cold, I thought I'd post these two photos. I took them a while ago (before christmas) at Perrywood Garden Centre, so unfortunately they're not of real snow, then happened to find them on my mac while I was sorting out some of the folders. I used the Film Grain Kit by Colton Rabon (definitely worth downloading if you have Photoshop. His Light Leak Kit is also amazing) to "sexy them up a bit" (they were very uninspiring digital photos before).

Check them out on my Flickr.

We've been busy over at 27 Kodak Moments (the photography blog I contribute to) queueing up amazing photographers to feature and setting up the 27 Kodak Moments Flickr Group. We're hoping it'll make it easier for people to submit their photos for feature. So please check it out if you like to experiment with photography and would like a feature on a blog!

Most Recent Flickr Upload.

Finally got round to uploading some more photos to my Flickr! These ones are again from my backlog, as I don't have the energy after work to be scanning new photos in, so they're going to have to wait a little longer.
