Oxford: Lincoln College Ball 2012 part 5

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

The weather for the Lincoln Ball was less than ideal so the indoor venues were quite full of guests. I did my best to get into some space to photograph them as well as I could. With the lack of any useable ambient light I was using straight flash. These images have a kind of paparazzi look to them. I’m desperately trying to find some spare time to scan in the rest of the film I shot at the Lincoln Ball but I can’t manage it at the moment. Something to look forward to… 🙂

[Tech info:] Nikon D700 digital with a Zeiss ZF 50/f1.4 manual lens.

Oxford: Keble College Ball part 3

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Another batch of film shots from the Keble College Ball 2012. Here you can see some from inside the Sheesha tent that was put on by Mr Flavour. It seemed like a popular spot with a constant queue leading out from the entrance. Not surprising really since it was cosy and warm in there. I did a lot of my portrait photography right outside underneath the big light ball. Those light balls were amazing and gave off a beautiful quality of light. The previous two sets of images from the Keble Ball have been very popular, thank you to everyone that has sent me messages. Feel free to add me on Facebook or like my photography page there if you want to keep updated on new posts here. Lots more images to come. If you were at the Lincoln Ball don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you, more from there coming soon.

[Tech info:] Mamiya C330f, 80/f2.8 lens loaded with Kodak Tri-X, rated at ISO1600 and processed in Kodak HC110 dilution B (1:31).

Guests have fun in the Shisha tent.
