  • Tate Britain with an Olympus rangefinder


    Who's looking at who?



    Watching brief



    Framed



    Art appreciation


    I must say the 35DC was absolutely perfect for taking photos like this as it's small, unobtrusive and extremely quiet, I don't think any of the subjects were aware that they had been photographed even in a hushed gallery.

    By the way, while walking round Tate Britain I saw three other people with film cameras, all of them teenagers or maybe early twenties.

    Once again it shows that it is the photographer and not the camera that makes great images. A well crafted set of candid photos.

      Isn't it wonderful to see that light grain!

        A great reminder that it doesn't take oodles of cash to create great photographs.

          Yes, I do love the grain of Tri-X. Can't beat it for that 'classic' look.

          Thanks Paul, it is especially satisfying to shoot with inexpensive old cameras.

                Thanks Alf. I think you're right about that.

                Yes indeed!

                  As always an excellent set Roger

                  I too love Tri-X , it is THE 'classic' B&W film, push or pull the hell out of it and it still gives great results.

                  On another note I should soon have my spare darkroom kit 'dug out' for you.

                  Kind regards, Simon

                    Thanks Simon. It is a great film.

                    No rush from me on the darkroom stuff - just let me know when you're ready.

                      Exactly, a nice set of shots.
                      It's the image that's important, not the tools used to make it.
