They dragged her with a rope around her neck and pushed her down onto a bench. Her arms were bleeding and her eyes burning... but shockingly, this is what she wanted.

That's the Russian-made Vega 5U 105mm f4 enlarging lens. Pretty isn't it? Enlarging lenses are used in film darkrooms to project film onto paper to make physical prints. For this reason, they have ...

Thanks. It would have been really nice to get some macro done, but not enough time. Just waiting for some bits and pieces so I can use the Rodagon enlarger lens as well.

In this post, I spoke about freelensing using old Kodak Brownie Hawkeye glass. The results are compelling, to say the least! I’ve added just a little contrast to these photos to make them pop  and mitigate the effects of flare due to the digital sensor…

Introduction

Briefly...

Sometimes I write. Sometimes I make photographs and music. Creativity is strange and evasive. It's easily confounded by personal demons and self-sabotage. Grasping it, even for a moment, is challenging.

So much of our online interaction seems based on some degree of self marketing, and I really struggle talking about myself. When I do, I often find the systems of categorisation used to define people very limiting. I can easily maintain a list of my most common dabblings, and I have done so below, but I cultivate a wide range of interests, including but not limited to: boardgames, pen and paper role playing games, ancient history, philosophy and philosophy of mind, astronomy, technology, futurism, sociology, politics...and on and on...

I’m an introspective person, but not always quiet. I favour genuine people and few friends. I enjoy open spaces and suffer crowds and cities grimly. There are times when I’d be happy to live on a secluded hill with my family and other times when I’m inspired to use my camera in crowded concrete jungles.

I post all sorts of stuff on G+, from science and philosophy to my own photos and music playlists.
