Oxford: Cowley Road Carnival, 2015

Written by Nasir Hamid on August 24th, 2015

I did some photography at this years’ Cowley Road Carnival and here’s a small selection. The weather was a bit of a mixed bag, combine that with more people than you can ever imagine on the Cowley Road and you can see why photography was rather difficult this year. Still, I did enjoy the atmosphere and look forward to going again next year.

    I didn’t get to go this year and now I am regretting that even more. It looks like a wonderful gathering of people. It looks very vibrant despite the weather.

    I’ve had a five pack of Reala 120 rolls sitting in my fridge for two years just waiting for the right subject matter to shoot it. I bought it the same week it was discontinued so it’s sort of like having the last box of donuts in your possession after donuts have been outlawed. I like your results with it.

    Hi Nasir,

    I really like your results with your Pakon. I’m having some trouble getting good results. How are you scanning your films? Which file format, any color correction in the Pakon software or in another image editor? Keep up the good work. Great shots all over this blog.

    Best regards from Denmark,

      Hey Lasse, I don’t have any secret formula, I just scan flat with the Pakon software and then adjust brightness/contrast in Lightroom.
