New (old) camera!

I've been away for a while in Essex with my partner so I apologise for the lack of input on this blog. Slowly I'll pick things up to at least one blog a week (no promises though, as I have a dissertation deadline in a few weeks). For my new projects I've decided to make the switch from film to digital and stopped using my EOS 1V and went ahead with buying an EOS 1D MK II N from a good friend Jonathan - check out his latest goings on over on
The fact that I have no ability to process my own film over the Christmas holidays and that I need to shoot a lot of images, eventually lead to this (probably way overdue) decision. I hope I can be a lot more proactive with shooting work now that I don't have to worry about loaning a DSLR from university and the cost & time of 35mm film. Although I've started some new projects I'm waiting until I have more of a variety built up before I post anything surrounding that work. So in the meantime I'll add what I manage to shoot every week.
Before I left for Essex I quickly run over to the student protest in Swansea town centre to try out my new camera. Here are the results

Paris street work

Last bit of work from Paris, I thought it would be better for editing purposes to separate the Paris Photo images from these shots, apologies in advance for the textbook romantic stuff - I just couldn't help myself - when in Rome, I mean Paris.
Still low-res flatbed scans for now, once I have some feedback I'll get on the case with fibre-based printing and then upload a few onto my website (which is soon to be changing, I'll keep you posted).
Enjoy the weekend!

Paris Photo 2010

As promised, here are some images from Paris Photo. These 6 images are just quick flatbed scans to get some feedback before I make a smaller edit and print on fibre-based paper (I will then scan the FB print).
I'll add the final prints from my Paris trip to my website hopefully sometime before Christmas, in the meantime please feel free to comment and help me with making a smaller edit.
