Okay I guess I’ve been neglecting this new blog thingy but I have my excuses….honest!
Over the past few weeks I seem to have accumulated a darkroom and 5×4 field camera. A bit odd as I’ve not shot or dev’d film in over a decade, but here we are, a full colour darkroom set up in my bathroom? Feels like I’ve stepped back in time a decade.

I’ve still got the digital kit and will be using it for work still but this is more for me getting back to the grass roots of what I enjoy with photography. And shooting, developing and printing your own stuff is just….well magic I suppose.
I’m now looking into alternative printing processes if I can get hold of the chemicals. So photogravure, Kallitypes, Cyanotypes and Bromoil prints will be also appearing here alongside digital images. I guess they’ll still be digital as they’ll need to get scanned in but you get the idea.
