Restriction

Taken back in April during the lockdown I walk past this small parking restriction sign most days walking my dog. I wanted to catch the light just right so it would highlight the pot marks which look like the sign has been peppered with buck shot.

I haven’t done much work of late, what with dealing with my late fathers estate, that and the restrictions of the Covid 19 outbreak, I have found very difficult to find the time or inspiration. Rest assured images will be coming soon as the wife and I will staying in Normandie, France very soon.

The Chair

This shot is a little pushing film experiment. I came across portrait shots done by Matthew Osborne (MrLeica.com) using Fomapan 100 Classic film but he had pushed to an ISO of 800 and the results are very good. I’m certainly very please at what I have had so far and knew what the film stock was able to being pushed two stops, so I’m testing the idea over this few months as a possible every day bulk film.

Taken on my Leica M4-2, Summicron 35mm f/2 ASPH and shot on Fomapan 100 Classic film @ 800 ISO. Exposure was 1/125 @ f/2.8. Developed in stock Kodak D76 at 20Âșc for 15 minutes, although looking at the negatives which are a little dark I might try 14 minutes next time.
