5 Frames… At Sharjah’s Fossil Rock on ILFORD HP5 PLUS and a Leica M4 (35mm Format / EI 100 / Voigtlander Color-Skopar 35mm f/2.5 P II)

I have been using a 50mm lens almost exclusively for around two years, and I recently wanted to switch it up.

5 Frames… From my first roll of ILFORD HP5 PLUS on an old Nikon F-401 (35mm Format / EI 400 / Nikon Nikon AF Zoom-Nikkor 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5)

My first adventure with ILFORD HP5 PLUS ISO 400 black and white film was exactly what I hoped for — this film is great.

5 Frames… From the Peter Pan Cup Christmas Day 2019, on ILFORD Delta 3200 Professional and HP5 PLUS

The Peter Pan Cup is a yearly 100m race, a swim across the icy-cold Serpentine Lido in Hyde Park.

Working the Scene from Four Different Perspectives: Protest Photography by New Exit Photography Group

Expressions of civil unrest have provided many opportunities for photographers to capture the energetic, emotional scenes which are the byproduct of demonstrations, protests, riots, and other manifestations.
