There was some chat on Facebook the other evening about Lomography Purple film and why it is rated between 100 – 400 ASA rather than being fixed (it has no DX code for example). The way I always see it is the chemists in the labs of the film companies work hard and are usually […]
I was looking through my pictures the other day, updating my Flickr and Instagram and I had a thought, that I thought was interesting. So if you’re a follower of me you will know that because I take a lot of photographs using film, the time it takes to process films and then sort through […]
Because my last video on the Fuji TW-3 was quite popular, I made another video to show you a bit more about the camera, including how to load a film into it and how to protect it from light-leaks too. I chose one of my films from my fantastic stash of 24 exposure films. I […]
In season 3, episode 9 of Photo Chat Vlog I spoke about using a Yashica Samurai half-frame camera with expired film, and in this episode I wanted to follow up with some other half-frame experiments with my Fuji TW3. Now this is an interesting camera because first of all it’s a Fuji camera. Now normally […]
I think it was in season 3, episode 7 of Photo Chat Vlog when I got to the end of the video that I said that there wasn’t a loaded film camera in my life at that time, and that was July this year, 2019. But I can tell you I was quite busy shooting […]
Milton Keynes, 21st October 2018, Ricoh R1 using expired Kodak BW400CN film. Why post a picture like this? Big light leak on the right, processing mess, blur, lack of detail. But…I do think there is something that all that noise is giving back to the image. It was a very bright autumn day, where it […]
I wanted to check in and do a little update on some of my photography activity, because we’re getting over halfway through the year now and though you haven’t seen much here, lots has been going on. I’ve been shooting quite a lot of film, and I started off the year digging out an old […]
It would seem the last few videos on Photo Chat Vlog that have been a bit more philosophical have not been quite so popular, so let’s see if we can get some of our mojo back with some hard talk about pure camera facts. A couple of years ago I did an A and B […]
What follows is really some very random thoughts that are an extension to series 3 episode 4 of Photo Chat Vlog. I said in that episode that I didn’t have a favorite picture of the three that I discussed, but on reflection I only realized long after I had finished the recording and put the […]
For a while now I’ve been making videos for a channel called Photo Chat Vlog on YouTube. You will have seen posts about these here on the blog if you are a regular visitor, and since the videos are mostly scripted, I thought I’d experiment with adapting the script so that it can be read […]

Hear the exciting story of the Facebook Colour Film Photography Group Travelling Camera, which I was part of recently! Even see footage of me taking a photo! Wow!
Well, yes, the world’s most unpopular YouTube channel is back for a new season of episodes, starting with this tale of my trip to the solar eclipse in Tennessee last year. Why not boost the viewing stats for this and spend 11 minutes listening to me explain three pictures from that trip?
