Make your way to Berlin

Laura and I went to Berlin last weekend. It's such a cool city. Really vibrant and masses of recent history. I took a whole load of pictures with my Holga and some expired Kodak 400NC film and these are the first I've scanned. More to follow...

NB: That's it, there's loads on here now, the systems about to blow so I'll stop loading any more pics on this post

Olympus Mju 770 — home studio

I blagged this new Olympus camera for MBR's Most Wanted feature as it's really pretty awesome. Waterproof, shockproof and crushproof — perfect for the rider who wants to chuck a camera in his pack and not worry about it being in bits when he gets home.

I set myself up a mini studio (see my DIY set-up here) at home to take this shot. Light from above is a shoebox softbox (shoebox lined with foil, with baking paper where the lid would be to diffuse), the background is a black bedsheet and the highlights are comeing from a Nikon SB28 to camera left.

As a first attempt at this studio lark I'm quite pleased. It's not perfect but it's got potential.
