Oxford: guests arriving at the Exeter College ball

Written by Nasir Hamid on April 24th, 2013

I was hoping to do some photography at the Exeter College ball last weekend but I didn’t send in my request until I was sure of what the weather was going to be like but by that time they had already signed up someone else to do the photography – the day before. That’s a shame because the weather was a perfect summers evening. I didn’t want it to be a total waste so I decided to go along to do some photography of the guests arriving. I really like how these have turned out and despite the falling light levels in Turl Street, film seems to have a way of soaking it all up. There’s a timeless quality to these that I really like especially the guys dressed in black & white.

[Tech info:] Mamiya 645 Pro TL, 80/1.9 lens, Kodak Tri-X processed in HC110 (1+31). One roll was pushed 1 stop for 10mins.

      Hey Simon,
      If you’d like to order a print I’ll happily make one for you – please email me directly as my email to you bounced back. I’ve had quite a few enquiries about emailing digital copies of some of these images but I’m afraid I don’t offer that with my photography. Thanks.
