It won't be to everyone's liking but frame 5 of sheet #70 appeals to me, the canal boat is almost hiding against the wall and I agree with Ian about frame 12
Some cracking shots there - and quite a splurge on the processing and scanning.
#72 frame 12, #73 frame 3, #74 frames 3, 11 & 15 catch my eye.
About time you put some shots up, come Nige, stop slackingI'm going to attempt to put some weight on the gas and catch up with these before the year comes to a close
Thanks Chris. I much prefer my Superia photos from the previous sheet (#71). The sunlight brings it to life and maked for more appealing photos, I think. It might just be the subject matter here though - I love misty days, anc misty colour shots can be beautiful. These all feel a little too green though.About time you put some shots up, come Nige, stop slacking
TBH it's hard to know where to start. Superia and a misty day is always going to get my vote, the birch trees in #74 look good as does the barbed wire. Lovely tonality and architectural details in #73.
I have thought about having something on to listen to, but I always forget until it's too late.Someone is *not* happy about 20 minute dev times....
I listen to podcasts while I'm developing. It's like on-demand radio for various interests... Music, photography, strategy gaming... 20 minutes isn't long enough! Hence my latest 35mm test of HP5 at 6400 (which may see soup before 2021 as it's great for shooting the cats)
I think I'm a fair-weather photographer when it comes to colour stuff. Good light really lifts it up whereas dull weather tends to make flat looking colours that don't really do it for me as much. I've seen lots of nice colour photographs shot in gloomy conditions though, so it might just be the way I personally find colour shots that doesn't suit those conditions.That's quite a catchup there Nige. Realy like the architecture work in the first two with 72 (frame 3) & 73 (frame 5) standing out for me. The misty woods in B&W is right up my street and there are many on there I'd be happy to have taken - esp frames 3 & 6 where the mist is hinted at.
Not so keen on the colour stuff. I just don't think it's as strong as the B&W. Nice to see a return of the pylons in the last sheet though, and I really do like the tyre(?) in the lake. Very nice.
Having the contact sheets hasn't really added anything in terms of how I make photos, but it's been really good to see what others are doing (including the misfires) and be able to receive and offer feedback on them. It is getting to be a bit of a PITA as the year comes to an end if I'm honest - mostly due to my letting them pile up though. I felt similarly when I did a Photo 365 thing a few years ago. By late autumn the enthusiasm for it had ebbed away and it had become a chore. I might continue with it next year, but I may just make sheets for rolls that standout in some way.As we approach the end - do you have any thoughts on your "year"? Was it useful, or just a pain in the bum to update the thread? There was an element of the latter for me and with a 52 attempt coming in January I may well continue with contact sheets for the various themes. Hopefully much less testing next year for me!
They don't tend to play nicely without flash in low light. A couple of these frames had the flash go off because I'd forgotten to disable it. In bright conditions though they tend to be ok - I still always disable flash though, just in case...Really nice contact sheet, and good to go out with a bang
13 & 14 look really nice. Reminds me of Haas' work (very hard to tell at this size though). Also I actually clicked on frame 15 because I wanted to see it bigger.
26 looks really nice too.
How do you find these P&S cameras in gloom? I have my MInitec loaded with 400 speed film and I'm loathe to take it out because of the flash going off all the time. Do you turn the flash off somehow?
And I was just going to say how frame one looked pretty good to mewith just a single shot made by the previous owner(frame #1
