Phil spent 25 years as a professional photographer after leaving Photographic College in the mid 1970’s. In his early years, he worked as a medical photographer, based in a hospital in the north of the UK and later came upon a change of direction to industrial photography and film/TV production. In the late 90’s Phil gave up professional photography and trained as a Train Guard, retiring a few years ago. He mainly uses "standard" lenses (50mm/80mm/150mm depending on format) with his cameras. He feels this makes him work harder and the resultant images are better. He doesn't specialise with his photography, enjoying photographing anything that appeals.
It sounds very grand when you tell people that you are having a field camera made for you. I certainly felt grand and excited when I placed my order for an Intrepid 4x5 with blue bellows and lens board.
I thought CineStillFilm 800T would be a fun film to try and used my Leica M2 and Summarit-M 50mm f2.5 lens (with lens hood) to shoot a roll in and around the Manchester Art Museum, Rylands Library and the surrounds.
UPDATE: Scott Micciche has published part one and part two of his extensive FERRNIA P30 Alpha tests.
