Hi all, this is my 52 thread. I will be shooting it all on 35mm film or 120 .. all BW. Shall be using it to embrace my new affair with film and also to learn about developing and scanning with the student loan I just spent on AG Photographic :) WIll blog about it here: http://www.mindofmel.co.uk/52-week-challenge/

Ilford XP2, Nikon f301, Nikon 50mm f1.4 AIS Lens

Week 2: Fear

Ilford HP5, T-max Dev 20C



Week 3: Sigh

Well done Mel, yet another take on this theme!! You have certainly set yourself a challenge doing all on film as well though I do think you can't beat black and white!!

I look forward to seeing your next 51!!

Some great shots there and good ideas on the themes. Particularly like the direction and fear shots. Not too sure week 3 shouts sigh at me, it's more admiring the stars IMHO. Look forward to seeing more of your challenge. Good luck.

I do like the idea behind your fear shot, But I cant help but think 'I hope you didn't prank 999 just for a photo'
My apologies if that comes across rude, as I don't mean that at all as I do like the shot.

I wondered the too!

Great image though, the outline of the hand is lovely and sharp. Having called 999 for my daughter when she was 18 months old it certainly was a scary call!

I really like your 'sigh' shot. Yes he could be staring at the stars thinking 'sigh' what a beautiful night!

Hi guys. Thanks for the all comments. Greatly appreciated

With sigh, I was going for that sort of introspective sort of feeling where one just sort of thinks to themselves about something and sighs... If that makes sense

Hahaha as for the 999 call. I typed in 999 and then pressed call an then before it rang took a screenshot and then ended the all before it connected. I'm a medic, probs the most least likely person to prank the emergency services! Lol :D

as much as i love the flexibility of Digital, theres something very special about film shots, if you were trying to get that last image in PP it would just look fake, great takes on the themes and well shot

For fear, did you really call 999? Tut tut!

I love your sigh one; very atmospheric!

Quite some challenge to do it on film given the turn around time we have each week.

Direction - Well thought out. Made me think.
Fear - Good take on the theme. A bit of dusting could help it though.
Sigh - I like the felling you've given this one

Great expression with Sigh, Mel. Really captures the word.
