Film for July 2014

I love love loved my camera for July – so much so that I managed to get through two films instead of my usual one, and it is loaded up and ready to go again next time I am out and about.

This month saw me use my Grandad’s Pentax ME Super, and I thought it was the bees knees!  I also loved that it was something that Grandad had used before – it makes it feel a little bit more special.

The Pentax ME Super camera was produced by Pentax from 1979 – 1984 so it is of a similar age to last month’s camera.  It feels lovely and solid and is really useable with a top shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second.  I used a trusty 50mm lens – love a nifty fifty – and thoroughly enjoyed myself this month!

Here are some of my favourite images from the month for you to have a shifty at;

Thornham

I went to visit the little town of Thornham the other week with Brett so we could take some landscape shots of a wreck we knew was there.  It is quite a famous little boat and it looked like it had been there forever and was very much part of the landscape.

We were so surprised when we arrived to find that the wreck had almost disappeared from view – we think that the storms of December 2013 must have completely torn it apart so that only the bottom half was still visible.

It actually made me feel strangely sad to think that it has finally gone.  I do also feel lucky to have snapped this photo of it when we visited last September.

Busy Busy Saltmarsh & Samphire

Hello brand new week!  I hope you are all having a wonderful July so far – it has been a busy one for me.  I have been finalising our online course (you can have a sneaky peek at the course page on the website over here – I am just working on a little course banner to go at the top of the page, but I am so pleased with the course so far!), looked at our next exhibition space over at Westacre Theatre which starts at the beginning of September.

We have also been busying ourselves replacing photographs that have sold at our current exhibition over at Cley Windmill (Whoo! Sales!), and setting up a branch of our wedding photography business down here in Norfolk!  Phew!

As if that wasn’t enough, we are also running our Landscape Courses over some weekends too.  We have 3 sessions left this season with spaces available (our last session has sold out already), so if you are thinking of having a go at landscape photography, whatever your level of photography experience, we would love to hear from you.
