    He's having a lot of success with that drop shot.

    Rafa is looking so creative. Some of his play has been truly incredible. I love seeing him come to the net, just a beautiful thing to behold.

    All fully consensual, although it definitely looks like I just followed her around with a long lens!

    A few recent photos taken in my Minolta XD-7 with a Rokkor 58mm Manual lens and using Fujifilm Provia 100F 135/36 colour reversal film. It took two weeks to get the film developed so I forgot I'd even taken some of these. The ice-cream cone was a nice surprise!

    Thanks guys, really appreciate it! Definitely still tasking a while to get used to film though. Probably a third of the shots I've been taking per roll have been soft! No focus assist to check sharps any more!

    A few more on my Minolta XD-7 using Kodak 8667073 Tri-X 400 135/36 Negative, Black/White film. Shot with a Minolta 58mm or a Minolta 28mm. Love these lenses.

    I’m taking a little breather from digital and I’ve switched over to a Minolta XD-7 to shoot film. It’s a lot of fun (pricey though!) but I’m enjoying the results. Still got a long way to go!

    I've decided to take a little break from digital and switch over to 35mm. I've just bought a Minolta XD-7 SLR and I'm really enjoying shooting on film, very satisfying. Quick question for the celluloid guys here; what happens if I switch ASA mid-roll? For example, if I'm shooting on ASA100 film and I decide to push the ASA up to 200 for one shot before switching back, will that affect the rest of my photos? Just curious about what the effects are and why!

    What a fantastic fight. I felt bad for Linares as he made it really competitive but Lomachenko landed with the most perfect body shot I've seen in a while. Also worth noting is that Linares came in almost three weight classes heavier than Loma and looked much bigger, but was still KO'd. That's an incredibly achievement. There's a lot of hype surrounding Loma but I really do think it's justified. Three weight title holder in just 12 fights is ridiculous and he's beating opponents that are of an incredibly high standard. I think he's the best fighter since Roy Jones Jr. That said, I think he's reached his peak weight now and I think Mikey Garcia is too big for him.

    So it’s Lomachenko vs Linares tomorrow night. This has the potential to be a real classic and it’s great that the very best are going at it. I favour Lomachenko but I think it’s going to be really close and Linares is such a classy fighter.

    Yup, I used to think the same. But he utterly dismantled Chisora in their rematch and made Klitschko look extremely average. Before his time off, he somehow became a good technical boxer!

    Agreed. But one small consolation about his fight tonight is that if he wins, he'll equal the record of most consecutive middleweight title defences. It's a shame he was ducked for much of his prime, he's definitely an all time great as far as I'm concerned. Saunders and Charlo are both great fights and a couple of years ago I would have had him winning both. Now that he's on the last leg of his career, I think both would one tough. He's still elite but might not quite be the same force he was when he was knocking out the likes of Geale and Macklin in such brutal fashion.
