Phoenix 200
2023 · 29 December 2023
First shots with Harman's new experimental Phoenix 200 colour negative film. "Something rich and strange" as The Bard would have it. This portends great things to come from the owners of Ilford I believe as they continue to develop it (no pun intended) further.

Having recently sat down and reset my photographic goals and direction, the medium I wished to use to achieve them and essentially the camera I would use to do so, it was now opportune to think about optics.

There is an old saying that goes, “Buying a Nikon does not make you a photographer, it simply makes you a Nikon owner”. Well after all these years I have finally become a Nikon owner!
Go To

My 'go to' film for this time of year, Kodak Portra 800; fast, very fine grained, good colour saturation, w-i-d-e overexposure latitude and usable at 1600 when desired as well.

My photography, when I have managed to do any this year, has been pretty unfocussed so to speak. Not only have I lost direction and motivation creatively but I have become more and more bored with the press and squirt approach engendered by the ever 'smarter' digital tech out there. I have given this much thought and thus decided to reset my photographic goals for the upcoming new year.

“This is the first-ever colour film made entirely from emulsion to cassette at the HARMAN technology factory in Mobberley, a significant and incredibly exciting milestone. This quirky, experimental film produces high-contrast images with strong, visible grain and punchy, vibrant colours. It’s unlike any other colour film.” – HARMAN Photo Press Release

Contax once upon a time billed their G2 cameras as being, "The essence of perfection" and whilst nothing ever is, I think that at that time these lovely 35mm film electronic rangefinder cameras came close for their intended purpose.

Some photographs you take purely by happenstance, by encounter, on the spur of the moment, unthinkingly, as literally a snapshot. Yet somehow they come out with a pleasing aspect, by instinct I guess.

Woods Walk

Wandering about in the woods with my M.Zuiko 12-45mm f4 Pro 'standard' zoom catching a mostly wider view of the forest glades after the recent storms as Autumn marches relentlessly onwards.

A tithe; one tenth of annual produce, formerly taken as a tax for the support of the Church and clergy. Hence the Tithe Barn where they stored all the tithes they collected.
