Another local kind enough to consent to be photographed. Though I am lacking in a professional lighting rig (anyone got a spare one?) I am pleased at the flexibility of the standard power compact house lamps I am using.
Ever have one of those days where absolutely everything that could possibly have gone wrong, did? Yeah me either, but friday was close. I did manage to salvage the day with this nice picture of a quaint church.
You may recognize this area, I have photographed it heavily in Infrared, and here is Black and White. As the water level lowers, due to a dry summer, more and more rocks are exposed, of differing sizes. This makes for an interesting look, and I hope to be able to get out to the center of the river, without having to wade (or get my gear soaked!) though the water.
If I can get out there, it should offer some new and interesting vantage points.
As mentioned before, I set the dSLR aside in favour of picking up my Yashica-D. Here are some of the results. Near me is a large cemetery, and this headstone stood out. The day was sunny, the skies co-operative and the lighting right. The developer, however, let me down, the images were noisy, dirty and streaked. I've cleaned them up as best as I can, but I was most displeased, especially given the price charged for medium format development.
In any case, the camera was opened wide up (f/3.5 for those who care) to blur the backgound.
My dSLR has been eating batteries of late, probably due to the long exposure times required for infrared photography, but given the price of the batteries, I've put down the dSLR and picked up my Yashica D again.
While I don't have the images just yet, I shot four rolls of film throughout the city, and hopefully will have one or two good images for your viewing pleasure.
