Cheers Ash,

This was a shot I noticed as I drove past a park, the sun was burning through the mist and I couldn't resist it.

Whilst I love monochrome, I'm a sucker for a sunrise and sunset!!

I'm worn out after the latest tour, but have now managed to get out to do some travelling and shooting and to have a little time in the darkroom woohoo

Here's a few to start...two from the Peak District, a place called Solomon's Temple, high on a hill surrounded by redundant Lime Kilns, and a couple from my current project, to capture all of the local listed buildings and any other building of historical note












These are posted up on my own site at KDHarrison

Enjoy

Thanks Jen and Ash for your comments. It's high time I got back into the darkroom again. And shortly I'll be setting one up at home, so I can have more freedom. I have an enlarger on the way (free too!) and will soon be up and running.

Add a negative scanner to the mix and I'll have 15+ years of images to work on.;...

busy time for H methinks......don't think I'll get much of a tan for 2010 :p

Cheers Duncan, and thanks for your post in my guestbook, much appreciated.

The website is not my own work, it's actually one "out of a box" hosted by a firm called Clikpic. They have a set of templates designed by various website people and you can pick and choose which template you go for with some colour options too.

It was one which was well reviewed in one of the photo mags a couple of years back and I decided that I'd go with them rather than try and design my own and give myself another headache.

I've had no problems with them and have been impressed with their service on the one occasion that I had to request their help.

If you aspire to do your own site at some point, I'd have no problem recommending Clikpic, but there are penty of others out there offering a similar service, so there's plenty to choose from.

It'll be a while before my pics are worth putting on a website Ken,but I'd like to know about the printing, to print on acrylics do you need a special machine or do you go to a printing shop? in fact, do you print them at home or shop?What is the best a printer (using ink) or a machine that uses chemicals?

I don't use printers, as I use traditional darkroom equipment and chemicals to produce my prints.

Latest one out of the Darkroom....from Avebury Stone Circle.



Taken on Efke IR820 Infra Red film. 2 second exposure at F16. This is the first time I've used this particular film at this location and I'm pleased with the results so far...

Duncan, it's a simple set up. A Film SLR and lens with an Infra Red filter on the front and some Infra Red film.

The film is tricky to handle...subdued light or load in total darkness, so a light tight bag is a must.

Long exposures typically between 1-8 seconds dependant upon light levels, sometimes the film can give unpredictable results, so it's good parctice to take extra shots at different exposures...a tripod is also essential..bright days with cloud give the best effect, but cloudy overcast days can give very interesting results

Processing and printing are no different to normal black and white film. It's great stuff, I love it!....as you can probably tell laugh

I can see that.As a kid I was always fascinated any time I saw someone in a dark room working(on tv)I always wanted a shot at it.To me that kind of thing was real photography, I'm not slating anyone, I just thought that was what the experts done,there was no digital ANYTHING in those days.Thanks for the reply,I still find that sort of thing very fascinating to this day,but like all good things,they're trying to stop all the analogue stuff now,I find it hard just trying to get an ordinary film for my wife@s camera and it takes the loveliest of pics

It's sad that every man and his dog have gone digital, there is still a market for the traditional stuff.

I cannot complain as my new darkroom is kitted out with stuff that people who have "gone digital" have given away for free, which I could never have bought!

WOW that was a stroke of luck.But lets face it,do you remember CDs doing away with 12" vinyl? It still hasn't happend, you can get turntables that are better than ever because because of how good CDs are and the fact that a lot of people still prefer vinyl, so don't listen to sales reps, they tell you what THEY want you to believe.

Duncan - I agree re this being about 'real' photography - I too am sad at the obsession with the digital age. I LOVE film and will never stop using it. Yes digital is convenient in some ways and for many situations but I really do like the use of film.

Brilliant Ken,they really are.But as I said earlier, you really must be good to do "REAL" photography. If I can take decent snaps with digital well just about anyone can, real photography really is an art and all arts require passion,patience&skill,you seem to have enough for all of us, well done and thanks for sharing them with us once again mate

Hi Ash, How are you my boy?

There's been no fresh falls since the weekend, but lots of ice where the residual snow has thawed and refrozen. Plenty of frost though...a lovely hoar frost last night and today.

I was at a work do last night and drove back from Herefordshire at midnight through thick fog and icy roads. The frost on the trees was stunning.

Got back home about 1.30 and the sky was crystal clear, with loads of stars, well below zero, but beautiful. I was so done in, I went to bed though....should have got the camera out!

How's the weather in your neck of the woods...plenty of material for Christmas Cards and winter images I bet.

I'm sound as a pound kidda. Life is good!

Yes, plenty of snow up here - AGAIN!
Two weeks worth, with virtually no let-up.
Just cleared the drive - AGAIN!
Only been out with the camera twice though, but bagged a few goo un's in the process. Been busy printing and framing for the past six weeks or so. Just bought me'sel a Canon 10-22 wide angle lens. Should be here soon, so looking forward to putting it through its paces.

Still busy with plenty of updates, if you're interested...

Ash, you've certainly got some proper snow where you are. I like the blog images...the three cows in the hill beneath the monument I like the best. I'd be interested to see how the new lens shapes up.

Time I got cracking before it thaws...I'll be trying some night shots over the next few days....the annual Geminid meteor shower has started today and will peak next Monday, so will be on bulb setting for a bit!

This is nothing to do with the Germaloid shower, where you get "piles" eek of images..

Catch you soon

All the best
