Jezza’s Digital Follies: Thompson Bucks County Classic

Bucks_classic_2k15-465
This is probably one of my favorite events to spectate let alone shoot.  The last few years or should I say the first 3 years of me watching / shooting this event, I have been more of a spectator than a photographer.  You could also say I got a bit lazy and just wanted to enjoy the weekend.  This year I wanted to focus more on the photography and try to enjoy it as much, and I’m glad I went that direction.  I think I enjoyed it more watching the race unfold through my finder rather than watching and capturing snap shots casually with whatever camera I happen to have available.

Flickr Random Photo of the Day – Sunrise

It’s been a week since I was out enjoying the waves and the sun and I haven’t been able to adjust back to normalcy.  Having said that, it pains me to look at my vacation photos since I wished I was still there.  I did happen to open up Lightroom though and I just so happen to close it at one particular sunrise session I did.  One of the shots below, which I am not too crazy on, but I am sharing with y’all anyway.  More from this set to come soon!

Sunrise

Yes, it’s not tack, and somehow I managed to unsettle this 1.3 second exposure.

As I mentioned in my last follies post, the Fujifilm Pro-400H was my 2nd to last expired film (read post here).  Well, this is the last of my expired film: Kodak’s 400 Tri-X professional black and white film.  This is also probably the least aged of my old film, only having expired around late 2013.  This film also gave me a (more…)

I seriously don’t know when I got this roll

So I finally finished one of my very very old rolls of Kodak Elite Chrome I’ve had laying around.  How old you ask? Probably close to 11 years.  I vaguely remember purchasing this along with 2 rolls of Ilford black and white film, which I just only finished recently.  (more…)

Shoot out!

Shooting Canon’s 5DS has been challenging to say the least.  Challenging in a sense that I truly hate it’s ergonomics.

Anyway, resolution wise my old D700 won’t be able to keep up, but let’s see how my Nikkor 50mm F/1.4D holds up against the much more expensive and much bigger Canon 50mm F1.2 L II

Will be shooting comparison shots throughout the day.  Stay tuned.

Flower

A flower starting to whittle away.

Shooting black and white is fun and all, but, I do have a soft spot for colours. I mean, we do see colour everyday.  So, after polishing off the Ilford PanF, I popped in a roll of Kodak’s Ektar 100.  Well actually, I had dropped off the Ilford for developing at CRC at the start of my lunch hour, and that left me with an unloaded camera.  So I stopped by Fotocare, and picked up Kodak’s Ektar 100.
