Winter is here along with the crazy zombie like Christmas shoppers!!!


"Studio View" Canon Ftb


It's pretty cold outside and the studio isn't much better. I have a few old and new prints this week, I've been pretty busy getting into the festive mood hanging up the Christmas decorations, buying and making Christmas presents and trying to survive the crazed Christmas shoppers.  

All in all it's going good.
This is the final week for the Christmas deliveries over at the Golden Frog Studio shop and the final week of free delivery on all purchases for now.

There's some new work for sale over at the shop so check it out and let me know what you all think.

Take care of one another.

Christmas sale, Sisters, Facebook and a Sofa!


Untitled Canon F1

Some more work taken with the Canon F1 and Canon Ftb. The Canon F1 shots are from the first test roll and are abit too dark if I am honest, I like the textures of the couch fabric and wooden floor so I thought I would share. I have a number of other prints and once I get some spare time I shall upload them.


Also some more portraits as always feedback/advice and comments are greatly received. 


"Two Sisters" 1 of 2 Canon Ftb 

This is the second half but actually the first shot of the "two Sisters" double portrait, The other was uploaded in the last post.
I take alot of Childrens portraits but rarely get to use them on my blog or online site due to permission and legailty issues which I don't mind we gotta protect the tiny ankle-biters, It's just a shame sometimes as children by far can be the best kind of people to work with. They never tense up or get akward when they see a camera, they don't ask "can you make me look good" and the most genuine smile or laughter I have ever photographed has always been a childs. Yeah it takes abit of extra work and sometimes a few wasted shots but when you do get the shot you want it's worth it. The shot entitled "Hide" is not the best from that shoot but its all I can show for now.

"Hide" Canon Ftb

Of course adults make excellent subjects too but I find you have to be sneeky both the "two Sisters" Portraits were taken without them noticing as was "Descension 01" taken from the Descension series below.

The online shop now has brand new work for sale with £3 off each print and free delivery on any purchases made, saving you a minimum of £5. I am still able to deliver in time for Christmas but purchases made after the 15th December I can't promise will arrive in time for Christmas.

Whoops!

Whoa its been a whole week and no update, I've been crazy busy this week lots of running around errands deliveries etc.

Canon Ftb 35mm scanned from contact sheet. J. Kenny

I managed to get a little developing done, The picture to the right is a scan taken directly from the contact sheet that has been handled a little too much hence scratches and marks. I've yet to make a print of this one but I hope to do it next week. This is the best from three shots taken, The unofficial title so far is "I Heart".
The young lady is my eldest sister Jeannette and the t-shirt describes her completely, full of heart, love and kindness.

I managed to pick up a second hand Canon F1 plus accessories on eBay during the week, I can't wait to test it out so check back to see how the first test roll goes. The Canon Ftb is still very much in use as is the Bronica ETRSi, I just could'nt pass up a bargain. Fingers crossed its not sent in an envelope, you laugh but that's a true story needless to say the camera did not survive the journey.

New Purchase Canon F1

Can you believe the week a Canon F1 comes on eBay Rob Zombie announces his UK tour, I'm hoping he doesn't sell out within the next three weeks but it isn't looking good as his London dates sold out within the hour. Never mind the Canon F1 is by far a better investment.
Guns n Roses play this week too but alas no tickets too costly, I seen them before any who and yes they were ace 100% better then the now disbanded Velvet Revolver, Go team Axl!
There are brand new updates over in the Golden Frog Studio Shop with sales on some prints so go check it out and as always I would love to know what ye think so feedback is greatly appreciated.

The Golden Frog Studio site is brand new and shiny so go take a peek and if you're on myspace drop me a friends request.

Golden Frog Studio Myspace site shiny and new.
Thats it, short and sweet.

An omen of things to come.

Hi my second post!

"An Omen of Things to Come" J Kenny©

Just thought I would share a Photograph (35mm) that's from what I am currently working on, both the image and title which I've also used as the post title pretty much sums up whats going on with me and my photographic work at the moment.     

 Lately I can feel a real sense of static energy its a kind of excitement, does anyone else get that? there's a certain feeling about what you are currently doing like this is the correct path. You're so close to physically producing the ideas you have within your head that you get nervous in case you do something wrong and cause it all to disappear.









"Untitled" J Kenny©

I spent most of the past few days developing my own projects and film stills along with scanning I managed to get in a few shots. 

Here's a Print of the dog, using a medium format camera (bronica etrsi) excuse the specs of dust from the dodgy scanner. 

As always comments and feedback are more then welcome, All work belongs to me John Kenny and cannot be used/borrowed without my permission thank you kindly for obeying ( One day I will have to tell you all the horrors of European magazines and stolen photographs shudder).
Take care of one another and check out my other websites links on the right, do it you know you want to.
