Oxford: Balliol Ball 2012 part 5

Written by Nasir Hamid on March 11th, 2012

These images were all made with a 35mm camera – my first SLR that I bought back in 1987 and it’s still going strong. I really enjoyed using it for these available light shots because it’s smaller and lighter compared to using medium format.

[Tech info:] Nikon FM2 with 35/f2.0 lens loaded with Kodak Tri-X film rated at ISO 1600, processed in Kodak HC110 dilution b (1:31) for 17mins.

On the dance floor in the live acts' marquee. Notice the band on stage in the background

I think these guys really wanted to be photographed because they wouldn't move from in front of my camera

Immediately to my right was a spotlight that gave a very film noir look to anyone that stood in the light beam

Enjoying the music

After the band had finished

    I especially like photos 2 (eating) & 6 (backlit couple), and there’s something striking about photo 5 too. Great work, Nasir 🙂
