A very quick celebratory post….. I’ve just realised that my blog has very recently past the 1500 followers mark.
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! (Particularly considering I’ve been such a half-baked, lazy, good for nothing git recently…I really don’t deserve it!!)
Thank you all so very, VERY much.
To be fair, the pressures of university work and still having to earn a crust have made it virtually impossible to post as much as I’d like, but whenever I can, I still enjoy shooting for the blog as much as any of the other photography projects I’m now getting involved with…It really is the most rewarding way to share photos, and the friendships I’ve found here, and all of the support I’ve had for my photography is incredibly important to me. I hope everyone will continue to pop in for a look around every now and again and check out what I hope will continue to be a FUN, FUN, FUN journey!
These were shot as part of a summer project using medium format film about two weeks ago in Birmingham….I shot them in a bit of a strange headspace as I’m just intending to use little bits of each of the images in a cut-up-collage’y kinda thingie I’ve got ideas for running through my noggin…..It could well prove to be a total load of shite, but I do like these source images….BONKERS colours!!
They were taken on my Pentacon Six, with the 50mm Flektagon lens using Fuji Pro 400 colour negative film and then home processed in a sink and saucepan with Tetenal C41 chemistry…(State of the fookin’ art !)…. and finally scanned with an Epson V600.
Let me know what you think, and once again THANKS for taking the time to have a shufti….
