Sellicks Beach,
June 2014

Woke up this morning and decided I’m going to turn my final year work into a book so I won’t be posting much more work I make towards that until I put it all together at the end of the year. This is from driving down south with my dog a few weeks back on one very rainy, foggy day.

Was reminded about Tasmania today, take me back to January.

I’m looking to get a point and shoot, all I really need is for it to be sharp and small (and not $$$), any suggestions would be appreciated!

That question reminded me of old images, first medium format mirror selfie I ever took circa May 2011.

Anonymous: Hello! I notice you use a variety of 120 camera formats - I was curious how long you've been shooting with 120? What got you into it? Any camera recommendations? I'm still only using 35mm but want to try out more :)

I bought my first medium format camera, a cheap chinese copy of a rollei TLR from a camera market, in 2011. I was initially drawn in by just how darn cool it looked, I wanted it instantly. But I guess I’d always been interested in 120 too, the lecturer I looked up to most shot with it and lots of online photographers I idolised did too, and finding that first TLR came at just the right time. When I started taking photos I was a teen and bought a dslr and just took thousands of photos, everything since then has been a process of slowing everything down. First transitioning to 35mm and learning the kind of ‘preciousness’ of shooting with film, and then 120, and now owning a camera that only allows 10 shots on a roll has only increased the consideration. I just really liked the patience that came with it and the increase in detail. Photography is just a form of meditation ya know? I have three medium format cameras I use pretty regularly that are all different formats, Hasselblad 6x6, Bronica 6x4.5, Mamiya 6x7, and I don’t think you can really go wrong with medium format cameras! Find out what format you’d be interested in most and go from there. I can only encourage it, sure it costs a bit more but photos are always worth it. I hope you are inspired to try it out!

do you go explopring often? or just while passing by?

I’m pretty blessed to live in the foothills so I’m nearby a lot of nature often, and my boyfriend’s family have a house in the Adelaide Hills that I try to stay at at least once a week which is where most of my images are taken. I spend 5 days a week stuck in the CBD due to a combination of work & study so I try to take advantage of whatever free time I have to spend in beautiful places. I 100% enjoy spending time outdoors in the open air and in natural environments more than the alternative. Taking up cycling as a pretty serious hobby has only helped that too! Nothing’s nicer than being out in fresh air and being able to experience it at your own pace.

Bringing this beauty back, good memories. I’ve barely shot any 35mm this year at all.
