Stacked

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 150mm f/3.5 Film: Fuji Pro 160 S, Tetenal C-41, roll 6  Notes: One of many from an abandoned pottery somewhere in Cornwall. The light in this place was just magical. This Fuji Pro 160s is gorgeous stuff.


Ridgeline

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 80mm PS f/2.8 Zenzanon Film: Rollei infrared 400 film exposed 160 secs @f/2.8 Notes:   Ploughed fields don’t emit IR…well not the characteristic white fluffy kind. My first foray into the world of IR with a roll of Rollei IR 400 Lee 87 opaque IR filter Dev’d in Diafine 3+3 min @30c ( is there anything you can’t dev in Diafine?) Lousy film wash hence the water marks.


Is She Art ?

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 80mm PS f/2.8 Zenzanon Film: Ilford FP4, Diafine 4+4 min @30c Notes: Now I know why they don’t want you taking pictures in art galleries. The absurd sight of this young lady sitting on her own in a room was pure Monty Python. You would see people standing in front of her, stare at their partners with a quizzical look, shrug their shoulders, and walk on to the next piece…


Georgian P**n

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 40mm f/4 Film: FP4 rated at 125, ID 11 1:1 solution Notes: A fantastic weekend in wonderful Bath. Probably the most photographed building in the city, and no wonder – just look at it.! The Royal Crescent is a residential road of 30 houses, laid out in a crescent. Designed by the architect John Wood Jnr (sic) and built between 1767 and 1774.

Notes: Play this File to get the full effect With his trusty side kicks, Jock and Snowy at his side, our hero rushes to the barn. Will he get there in time to stop the evil -knife wielding – professor Dastardly from dispatching our heroine.

What a Mug

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 80mm PS f/2.8 Zenzanon Film: FP4 rated at 125, ID 11 1:1 solution Notes: The first of many from an abandoned pottery somewhere in Cornwall. The light in this place was just magical.


The Estate

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 80mm PS f/2.8 Zenzanon Film: efke/adox IR820 Infrared Film, Rodinal 1:50 Notes: The results of a trundle through the grounds of Trellisick House with Justin and Sus on Saturday. I was severely miffed when this roll came out of the dev tank. Apart from a few where I had taken the IR filter off the camera, every other frame seemed completely clear. I was about to cut out and dump…


The Pictorial Possibilities of Colour

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 40mm f/4 Film: HP5, Ilfosol 3 Notes: A day out at the Tate, St Ives. While the Ben Nicholson exhibition was the highlight of the visit, this room really encapsulated what is so absurd about the world of Art. Built up of layers to a fine, smooth surface, these strictly formal arrangements pose the saturation, rhythm, balance and contrast of colour against architectural space. The viewer is drawn into this…


Going Goth

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 40mm f/4 Film: Ilford FP4 rated at 125 iso, ID11 1:1 Notes: My first ever shoot in studio with the Bronni. Really quite scary as there is no LCD to chimp at, to check exposures and composition. I’m sure this feeling is the same as jumping out of a plane and hoping that your parachute opens….eak.Need to work on dof next time.


Vulnerable Property

Camera: Bronica SQ-ai Lens: 80mm PS f/2.8 Zenzanon Film: Ilford FP4, Diafime 4+4 mins @30c Notes: Truro Flickr Meet August 2008 Down into the bowels of Moorfield Car park. The rather grotty brick walls are in stark contrast to what looks like the ceiling of a Space 1999 film set.
