Well it definitely all came good in the end, super final choice for the theme, it fits perfectly.
Having just looked up "Tucker and Dale vs. evil" I'm intrigued as to what you came up with.
As for this one didn't get it until I read the title and then its blindingly obvious.
.. not your digging then?This was taken with the film title in mind. Saw the hole, and thought ........
That's interesting.... light travels through the film and reflects of the back of the camera back onto the film causing a "glow" ....
This isn't a good film for contrasty work sadly. If I'd shot it on Tri-X or Double-X I think that would have worked better. In fact, Double-X is repurposed cinematic film which would have been perfect - both thematically as well as practically... It actually ended up better than expected because the dynamic range was very high and I thought the sky would just have gone. I do agree it's not great tonally though. I find these challenges to be really... challenging for me because I'm rarely satisfied and every week feels like "half-a-job-Bob". It seems so simple "just one photo a week" - how hard can that be? But if you're taking the time to come up with something, and shoot it, as well as doing all the other "real life" stuff we do, it can be a real challenge - that eventually borders on being a chore. I think that's why I have yet to finish a 52. Some people here do some really creative stuff and it's almost like the 52 is the briar patch to their Br'er Rabbit.Good work Ian, I know the film just needed a little nudge towards getting it from your image. Subtle works..
It's quite a stark scene you've captured here but then that helps with the film connection. I'm not sure if I'd like to see a little more contrast in the image, is it possible to bring some in or not if using film?
It's not that challenging. I shot about a hundred rolls last year, which is 2 a week. It's all been black & white as I wouldn't be able to get colour done in time as I don't develop my own colour. I also don't wet print because I have no space for a darkroom and there's no way I'd go through the hassle of making the bathroom light tight. If my photographs were any good, that'd be a different matter It takes about half an hour to develop, a couple of hours to dry, and half an hour to scan so it's no big deal.A photo a week on film I can imagine is challenging in itself Ian.
I take you must finish whatever roll you have in camera and then get it developed, printed, scanned and then PP'd?
That also must 'force' you to, pardon the pun, shoot through a roll just so as you have it in on time?
Is it your aim to shoot the 52 entirely on film, or could you cut yourself some slack and go for the digital option?
