Chatsworth house pictures

It was a few months ago that we visited Chatsworth in Derbyshire, but I’ve only just been through the images I took and decided that these Chatsworth house pictures are the ones I like best. Just as when we visited Eyam a few days earlier, we were lucky with the weather and it was a brilliantly sunny and warm day so I took both my Pentax K5 DSLR and Pentax Z-1p film SLR with me on the trip. The sunny […]

Eyam Hall favourite pictures

When we were in Derbyshire earlier in the year one of the places we visited was Eyam Hall, which is a National Trust property only a few miles from the cottage we stayed in.  We were fortunate because the weather was glorious, and so it presented many photo opportunities for me with both the Pentax K-5 DSLR and Z-1P film SLR. Eyam Hall is an interesting place for a visit, although there is no car park at the actual property […]

Chesterfield church in Derbyshire

When we were in Derbyshire a few weeks ago I took lots of pictures with my Pentax K5 which I’ve only just imported into Lightroom on my main Photography computer. The series shown here were all taken in Chesterfield, and specifically are all of the famous church with the crooked spire. They were all taken using a Sigma 18 – 125 HSM zoom lens.

Crich tram museum on Ilford HP5+

When we recently visited the Crich tram museum I took quite a few pictures with my Pentax K5 DSLR and posted the pictures I was most pleased with a few days ago. As well as the K5, I also took along a Pentax MZ-3 loaded with Ilford HP5+ film, and although I’ve posted some of the pictures I took with that combination, this post is to publish the others. Just for the record, I developed the film in a 1 […]

Derbyshire on Agfa CT-100 colour slide film

A couple of weeks ago we were on holiday in Derbyshire and naturally being a photographer I wanted to take some cameras with me. As well as digital pictures I also wanted to take some colour slides so I made my camera choices for the trip based on that requirement. These pictures can also be viewed full sized here. Normally I would take along my Fuji X-T1 mirrorless camera, but because of the desire to take slide pictures as well, I […]

Crich tramway museum on HP5

This is the walkway leading to the main part of the ‘village’ at the Crich Tramway museum which we visited last week. As with the pictures I published earlier, this picture was taken with a Pentax MZ-3 autofocus 35mm slr on HP5+ film developed in Rodinal and scanned with an Epson V550 Perfection scanner. I have done a little bit of post processing in Lightroom on this picture – adding a bit of noise reduction and sharpening to give the […]

The Tram repair shop at Crich

This is another picture I took at the Crich tramway museum, this time in the repair shop using a Pentax MZ-3 slr loaded with HP5+ film and using a Sigma 24 – 70mm autofocus zoom lens. As with the shot of my daughter Emma, this was developed in Rodinal at 1 to 25 concentration and scanned with an Epson V550 Perfection scanner. The film was rated at its box speed of 400 ISO, and with the lens at it’s widest […]

Emma in the park at Crich

When we recently went to the Crich tramway museum in Derbyshire I took a lot of pictures with my Pentax K5, but I also took along a Pentax MZ-3 loaded with Ilford HP5+ black & white film. The picture above is one of the pictures I took that day, and developed in Rodinal a couple of days ago. This was taken with a Sigma 24 to 70 autofocus zoom lens fitted to the MZ-3 set to about 60mm and about […]

Pentax Program A sample pictures

I’ve had a film in my Pentax Program A 35mm camera since a couple of weeks after I bought it and I’ve been taking occasional pictures with it over the last year or so. Because there was still film remaining in the camera, when we recently spent a week in Derbyshire the Program A was one of the camera that I took with me to complete the film and get it developed. It was only after I’d completed it and […]

Crich Tramway Museum

This post contains some more the the pictures I took at the Crich Tramway Museum when we visited recently. They were all taken with a Pentax K5 DSLR and either a Sigma 18-125 HSM zoom or a Tamron 10-24 Super Wide angle zoom. Unfortunately, the day we visited was quite cold and grey, so most of the pictures I took were lit by cloudy skies, but there was still enough light to use reasonably low ISO settings, and even get […]

Glasgow tram in Crich tramway museum

We went to the tram museum in Crich in Derbyshire today where I took this picture of a tram, originally from Glasgow, with a Pentax K5 and Sigma 18-125 HSM Zoom lens. In a future post I will include other pictures I took, including some black & white pictures on HP5 film and some colour slide images on Agfa CT-100 film.

Chatsworth house interior

Yesterday I posted an image of Chatsworth House in Derbyshire taken from the gardens. Today I’m posting a wide angel view of the interior of the house taken at high ISO with my Pentax K5. One of the biggest problems taking photos in the interior of stately homes is that they are generally very dark and don’t normally allow the use of flash to take pictures. Because of this you basically have to turn the ISO on the camera very […]

Chatsworth House in Derbyshire

Today we paid a visit to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and I took this picture of the house using my Pentax K5 and Tamron 10-24mm Super Wide Angle lens. We were lucky because it was a beautiful spring day with hardly a cloud in the sky and the spring daffodils were still in bloom. Unfortunately, there are some improvement works taking place at Chatsworth at the moment, so the back part of the house is covered in scaffolding and plastic […]

Spring in super wide angle

I’ve been thinking for a while that I want to get back to posting some more pictures on my photoblog, and not just concentrate on vintage cameras. Although I am interested in film and vintage photography, I still enjoy using my digital kit as well, so this morning, being a brilliantly clear day with hardly a cloud in the sky, I decided to go for a walk with my Pentax K5 and Tamron 10 – 24mm super wide angle lens […]

Lincoln on film – part two

This is the second post containing the rest of the pictures I shot on film during a recent trip to Lincoln on holiday. These were all taken with a Pentax MZ-3 35mm autofocus camera using Fuji Superia 800 ISO film.  I’m a little more pleased with these pictures than the set contained in the first post, the colours seem better and the grain not so pronounced. These pictures can be viewed full sized here. As with the last set, these […]
