I ♥

"I ♥" Canon Ftb

 Hi
So I finally got around to getting some prints done off of some old contact sheets. I am happy with how "I ♥" turned out. I've been pretty busy the past few weeks with a number of projects going on at once that will most likely continue for the next two months with a bit of luck.

I will upload some of it when I get the chance.
There is loads of new work for sale on the online shop prints of various sizes and prices, including the "I ♥" print to the right and numerous floral prints. So have a  look-see you might find something you like. I've made some changes to the delivery rates, £2.00 anywhere around the world for all purchases including multiple buys. However with Easter coming up I have decided to have a free delivery on all purchases until the 26th April 2011. This will be the last free delivery period until October.

Check back frequently as new work is added all the time to the online shop or if you are on Facebook click the "Like" button on the left to recieve updates.

 It has all been a bit hectic here hence the last few posts that have been photographic prints only and no written communication. The last two posts I shared prints from a test roll of FUJICOLOR C200 I had been given, I think it turned out to be a decent performer that certainly has potential.



For 35mm colour photography I normally use a mix of fujifilm Velva and Kodak Portra and Ektar range as the colour, tonality and grain are fantastic in all with little nuances in each.

I have to admit I am a big fan of the colours produced with Cine film, Such as Super 8 kodachrome 40. I like the vibrant snappy colours it can produce while also looking washed out (over exposed).  My own colour work tends to be influenced by this although I will and have for stills work bend alittle.

I am currently on a bit of a Stephen King binge, I forgot how good he was. Finished The Shining, Thinner and Salem's Lot all excellent books. The Shining so far is my favourite If ye get a chance ye should definitely give it a go as it has a lot in it that the film left out. Although the film is great too just a bit different and the sense of isolation Stephen King has managed to build up within the book is lost. 

Next month look out for a new addition to the online shop along with new Photographic work.


As always thanks for the feedback I look forward to seeing what ye think, any questions ye can reach me @ jgoldenfrog@hotmail.co.uk.

Thanks for checking in take care of one another.
