lily









I've never really took photos like this before, I find taking photos of flowers lame and amatuer-ish, but for a project for uni I need to photograph 'fascinating objects' and so I photographed a lot of random things. These were taken on my Zenit E with a 29mm lens, on Ilford b&w film. The 2nd one is of the middle of the lily, using a macro attachment thingy. I do actually like the outcome of the 1st photo, it couldnt have looked any better if it wasnt shot on film.

Nanna

So I found some old photos of my Nanna & Grandad from the mid 1940's, and some (like this one) are in need of a little care. Now I've never attempted to restore a photo before but I thought I'd give it a go. It was actually lovely to work on and more personal for me being a photograph of family.
Heres what I got, its not perfect but I still love it.

shadow catchers v&a

I recently came across the V&A website and saw that they are currently showing an exhibition of Artists that are Photographers but do not use cameras; Camera-less photography.

The show is called Shadow Catchers: Camera-less Photography and it includes the work of Floris Neususs, Adam Fuss, Pierre Cordier, Susan Derges and Gary Fabien Miller.

Theres also a book that accompanies the exhibition which looks beautiful. 

The website has videos of each artists showing you their process of camera-less photography, it is actually really interesting if your interested in different processes of working with images and the outcome of all of their work is breathtaking.

I'm gutted that I wont be able to go see it as it is in London and I'm not going there until May, it is being shown from 13th October 2010 - 20th February 2011, so if you live in London or are planning a visit I'd recommend going to see it!




The image below is one of my favourites from the artist Floris Neususs, it is a full size whole body photogram.

PX 70 FF Colour

Oh dear, its been ages since I posted anything. 
This is mainly due to starting uni 4 weeks ago and being busy commuting etc. 
I'm starting to feel like uni is un-inspiring me which cant be good.

Anyway, I bought a big 3 pack of the new PX 70 colour film, I think Ive got through almost a pack and these are the only ones that have come out alright. 

Its very experimental so I'm going to be experimenting more hopefully :)

sisters house



This past week I've been house and cat-sitting for my sister while she was in Egypt. It's been fun, I love having a house to myself, even though I dont act much differently, its nice.
Plus her house is kind of like a hotel, clean, crisp and glossy.

I finally got hold of some more Spectra, its seriously been too long.
Hopefully this weekend I will be taking lots of photo's and will be on here more often,
I promise.

...........

I recently got some more Fuji colour film but realised I had 2 shots of black and white Polaroid left in my 450 land camera so I used them up.

I've really been slacking lately and I hate myself for it, I've let other things get in the way that just really arent inportant to me at all.

I'm going to sort myself out as I start uni in just over a months time, I really cant wait!





This is my new favourite corner, it has most things I need (minus all my cameras).
Scanner, sewing machine, polaroids, Francesca Woodman & Nan Goldin books :)

bloody px




I've been having a bit of a hard time with the First Flush PX 600, my first batch was spot on, almost perfect. But my next pack just isnt working as well, I think it has a lot to do with the heat, the weather recently has been a bit warm and mental and it looks as though its had a bit of an effect on my bloody px film!
Hopefully I'll have better look with my next pack.
These are the few I really salvaged from the pack!

stand alone


I very rarely take those one of a kind photographs where it actually takes my own breath away, but I have to say, this is one of them.





Experimenting with the new PX 600 Film, I love this image.
You need to see the real thing to enjoy all its beauty.

atz edge cut


Last week The Impossible Project put up for sale some mega cheap SX-70 Artistic TZ Film, £8 per pack. Because it was edge cut film, and had a big chance of being slightly ruined. I took my chances seeing as though they only had about 500 for sale and were counting down untill they went on sale. It was a limit of 5 packs per customer. I went on their shop website just before they went on sale, and of course the website crashed as soon as they were up for grabs! I luckily grabbed 5 packs of the stuff, and in 10 minutes they were sold out. Now I've had a play with ATZ film, I love it. And am not looking forward to having to pay full price for it after I run out. Heres what I've taken so far...
