I got some negatives back the other day. This is one from 5th November on a golf course. This was the only one that I took that night, it was freezing and I didn't think anything would turn out because of the strange mist. I wish I'd taken some more now though. I originally scanned this at 2000 dpi so compressing it to around 300 dpi has taken its toll. I am still trying to get the colours correct because this was edited using the scanning software.

Port Carlisle:- I first visited when Dad and Ross decided not to go to Ross' Lancaster interview, but to come to visit Carlisle. I didn't take a camera on the first trip, but did this time. I will hopefully go back before Christmas. Sorry if some of the colours seem a 'bit off'.

Here are some more taken in a still life studio at uni. Its a different camera(with a rangefinder), I didn't bother putting the range finder on the top. I'd like to learn to use this at some point, I'd also like to use a Mamiya 7.

Still life

Just some stuff I've been playing with in a still life studio. I'm not sure, I probably need to think a bit more about it.

I quite like old boxes, and packaging. I've just won 3 boxes of Kodak large format film that's older than my dad. I know it most definitely won't work, but atleast the boxes will be interesting.

1,000,000 died to make this sound.

Here are some of my first large format images, aswell as some other photographs that I don't think'll 'fit' into a category or post. Some of the compositions are a bit dodgy...but I'll get better (...hopefully).

As I said, I don't think that these really 'fit' anywhere. That said I don't have a huge back catalogue of photographs that I've taken...I will upload more that I'm currently editing tomorrow, and then some more when I get the rolls/sheets of film developed.


Test test

Below are some trees.
It's quite strange looking through work that I made last year, I look at it now and think "god the colours are a bit strange, why didn't I notice that before?" I always seem to think 'crap, if only I'd exposed these for a bit longer, or used another light source you would be able to see some more detail on them'.  Oh well, nevermind.

Bronica ETRSi, HP5 processed and scanned.

These were taken for an assignment titled 'Garn Yam' ('going home') I think that I took these in an attempt to move away from the other people on the course who went with the literal meaning and 'went home'. In my artist statement I wrote that where the tree stands is 'home' and that this is unlikely to change, unless it gets uprooted.
