the kraken rum. black spiced rum. bit too spiced for my liking but it isn’t too shabby. great bottle and styling.. two different shots (pun intended)…two different treatments (using gimp 2.8).
in the last post i prepared the ricoh 500 g so that i could replace its decayed light seals. in this one i’ll show you, briefly, how i did it. i bought some 1.5mm thick sticky backed foam (in fact that’s the seller i used…she was most excellent), a steel rule with a cork back […]
another lightroom preset. this one’s trying for a summery lomo feel. all tones lightened…some colours boosted…some muted. all the things that i wished summer brought, here, in scotland. saying that i’ve only provided one outdoor sample… you can download the file here. extract it and when you’re in lightroom’s ‘develop’ module right-click ‘user presets’ and […]

the olympus pen ee2…a half-frame camera produced between 1968 and 1977. selenium light meter…two shutter speeds…hotshoe…lovely thing. here’s mine (with a lomography colorsplash flash fitted) and a couple of sample shots (taken with expired ilford hp5 plus).
