Spanning 90 hectares in central north Phnom Penh, Boeung Kak Lake is one of the only large open spaces left in Cambodia’s capital city. Prior to the recent evictions, approximately 4,000 families lived on and around the lake, with many depending on the lake for their livelihood. Families have been living around the lake since […]Boeung Kak Lake – the death of a community — Ian Kydd’Miller’s Blog

Street Photography in Phnom Penh, Cambodiafujifilm, Lenses, opinons, thoughts, photography, pictures, public, Travel
Making images on the streets of Phnom Penh in Cambodia has become my favourite and essential pastime over the last 12 years. Pictures of people going about their lives, changes in the city and its skyline. Many believe that street photography should be people-inclusive but I do not and think the streets and building themselves can be as enjoyable and tell much about the people and how they live.
Nikon F – A Classic SLR, But Is It Worth Using Today? — Mostly Film Photography (GotFilm.org)cameras, Lenses, opinons, thoughts, photography, pictures
In 1965 the Nikon F was the envy of photojournalists everywhere. I have to clarify things a bit. The 35mm film camera was not considered the camera to use if you were shooting studio models, portraits, advertising layouts, or landscapes. The 35mm negative is way too small to produce the quality needed for a full-page […]Nikon F – A Classic SLR, But Is It Worth Using Today? — Mostly Film Photography (GotFilm.org)

I’ve been trying several Nikons lately (again) and wanted to talk about one of my favorites, the F2. The F2 was released in 1971 and manufactured in several variations until 1980. Like the F, the F2 was built as a system camera. Initially, the lenses made for the F worked the same way on the […]Nikon F2 – A Legndary Film Camera, And Why I like It — Mostly Film Photography (GotFilm.org)
Plastic Mess in Phnom PenhFujichrome, fujifilm, Lenses, opinons, thoughts, photography, pictures, Travel
a world without pictures is like coffee without cream and sugar, bitter
As seen above is the collection of plastic waste at Bueng Trabek this fills the canal and just seems to get bigger. This will not rot down or go away and needs action to remove it and dispose of it in a proper fashion.
People are living with this stinking mess literally on their doorstep. The problem is caused by people actively or passively dumping their waste into the open sewer that leads to Bueng Trabek lake. The people need to start taking more responsibility for the care and disposal of their day too day waste and a much more effective system of collection must be implemented by…

So, to make up for it, I will share images from todays visit to Laugharne Castle in Carmarthenshire, South Wales. It’s a tiny, historic seaside village, with […]A visit to Laugharne.

Why the camera you use (probably) doesn’t matter.Uncategorized
We live in a world where we want, want, want, and this goes for photographers as much as anyone else. However, the fact is, your latest camera you have just bought, really didn’t matter to your photography as much as you hoped. Here’s why…
First of all, if you’re a professional photographer, this doesn’t apply to you, as you need a very specific tool for the job. However, if you’re not making money from your camera, it’s a very different story.
If you’ve bought a mirrorless camera in the last 7 or 8 years, you’ll have advances in autofocus that’s for sure, but everything else will pretty much be the same. If you’re a landscape photographer (the ones who seem to be prime candidates for extreme camera purchases), then of course autofocus doesn’t matter as much to those who photograph wildlife.

Black and White my first love.Fujichrome, fujifilm, opinons, thoughts, photography, pictures, processing, Travel
My beginnings in photography were in taking and making pictures using black and white film, developing and printing them in the darkroom.
Using film is part of my past and generally, now I used my digital images, taken mainly in colour and convert them to Monochrome using a computer.
Using colour digital images, you still have to be able to see what an image will look like as a mono image, some images just do not work in black and white.
