Oxford: Lunch hour session

Written by Nasir Hamid on August 8th, 2012

After months of rain we finally had a short lived spell of dry weather. These images are from the first half of a roll of film I shot recently during my lunch break. We are now back to wet/overcast weather. Is it summer yet?
I used this roll to experiment with a different developer that I usually use with this brand of film and so far I like the results. My developer of choice for Fuji Acros 100 film is Kodak HC110 but with this roll I used Rodinal at a dilution of 1+25.

[Tech info:] Mamiya C330f with 105mm lens loaded with Fuji Acros 100 film, processed in Rodinal 1+25.

This gentleman wasn't keen to be photographed but after we chatted a little about photography he seemed okay with it. I hope he agrees that it was worth stopping for.

This man called me over after he saw me photographing the building project on the corner of Walton street. We had a good chat. He's a local musician.

This girl was waiting for a friend outside Brasenose college. The friend turned up right before I made this shot. She's standing to camera right just out of frame.

High street. I like the arrows in this frame.

A Police speed trap on St Giles. I saw a few cars being pulled over for speeding. Easy money.

The building project on the corner of Walton Street and Little Clarendon Street is beginning to take shape.
