Mistakes have been made - January 2021
In this special episode of Photowalking with Colin I cover some recent mistakes I’ve made with film and in the darkroom. It seems we (the collective we) mainly share our victories online. I wanted to be sure to share the losses as well.

Culm dunes - October 28, 2019
Photos: Nick Carver: 22mm ∙ f/22 ∙ 1/15s ∙ ISO 100 I'd been wanting to use the Monochrome picture style in my Canon camera but hadn't found the right subject. Until this day, when the sun was still relatively high in the sky, and I remembered how Nick Carver took advantage of these less than stellar photographic conditions to make black and white photos in the desert. I don't have sand dunes or cacti available to me so I thought of using these anthracite culm piles as my sand dunes. I am happy with how the first photograph came out. But I'd like another crack at these, and a few different compositions, with a lens hood. Follow @cdevroe on Twitter and Instagram.

Greenfield Road - October 1, 2019 - Photowalking with Colin
