The street art scene in Perth has increased quite a bit. The local government has commissioned international artists to work all over the city. I usually dont like taking photos of other people’s work, so I try to take it in my own point of view. Sadly I do not know who the artists are and thus cannot give them credit. If you recognize any of the artist work please let me know. The films I used are Agfa Precisa CT, Kodak Ultramax 400 and Agfa Vista 400 & 200. All taken with the little Canonet QL17 GIII.
Part of my Beached As series. Went and drove to Fremantle one weekend with my Canonet loaded with Kodak Ultramax 400. Planning to make a book out of it after a year or so of going around beaches 🙂
I have began exploring film as a creative medium rather than just something to capture a moment while out and about. Seeing Rebecca Norris Webb and Ralph Eugene Meatyard work has opened up a whole other realm of photographic possibilities.
All the shots are from the same roll of Kodak Ultramax 400. The last shot is the first time I have tried using film for long exposure work. I used an app as a lightmeter which thankfully worked out. I love how film creates such unpredictable colours and effects.
Since coming back from the Philippines and shooting a local beach I have always wanted to shoot the beaches here in Aus.
I finally got the chance a couple of weeks ago when I visited Floreat Beach. It was a welcomed break from walking the concrete streets of Perth.
Mind you it is currently winter in Australia so the water would have been freezing but there were still people swimming and surfing.
I love how the blues were rendered by Kodak Ultramax. It really captured the mood. I have three more rolls to develop and they wont be the last! I feel like a beach project is developing 🙂 Thanks for visiting. Hope you enjoy the images.
