It’s been a little while since I’ve been out and about trekking the city to capture urban life.
This time of year is usually downtime from weddings and a catch up on photography business stuff as well as create a few new goals, dream up a few more projects, read a great deal, and dabble some more into medium format portraiture.. I seem to be quite habitual with the above this time of year.
I do realise however, that it’s time to go and explore, particularly as it’s one of the things that refuels me.
I’ve been trying a lot more colour recently due to two factors. My ability to now process colour film at home using the Cinestill C41 kit, which has been a big money saver, and the enjoyment of the colour palette of Superia 400 pushed a stop or two. I can’t get enough of the green shadows, magenta/yellow highlights and the ‘film’ look that adds a level of nostalgia that resonates with me. As a result I have stocked up on a number of Superia 400 film.
I do however really like the look of black and white, particularly Kodak TriX. I might load in a roll or two on my next outing..
The important thing is simply to get out with camera in hand and take a walk.
