More photos to come!
I’ve shot another two rolls for my project, I’m hoping that they will be my last. I’ve slightly worn myself out doing this project, mainly as I’m going out when it’s late to take photos in the dark, I’m carrying camera gear and walking around for a couple of hours at a time. I already have a bad back, and it’s susceptible to injury.
Enough complaining, I’ve been shooting on different film than I previously had been using, I decided to use a lower ISO film, previously I had been using Ilford HP5 400, but I was reading up and decided to try out a lower ISO because then there would be less grain, this time I had been using Kodak TMAX 100, obviously my biggest concern is that nothing comes out when I develop it, which this close to my deadline, would be absolutely terrible, and would mean I’d be spending the next few nights reshooting, which I’m trying to avoid. However, my camera was on the longest exposure it can do without putting it on bulb, I just need 3 or 4 images which I can use, and with my previous shots, there are some in there which I really like, but I need the opinion of others to refine it.
Naturally while I was taking photos, and getting stuck in the mud, I came up with another idea. So far I’ve tried to avoid having people in my photos, because I wanted it to be devoid of them, because it creates a different message to my work. But I just had an idea, which involves people in the photos, but they are moving their heads, because I’m using long exposures, the face won’t be captured on the film, and instead there will just be a blur, whereas their body should be pretty much okay, I took a few tester shots, and I’m kinda interested to see how they’ll come out. Not entirely sure if I want to take more of them, it does depend on how they come out, and what other’s think of them.
