Oxford: Giffords Circus 2019

Friday, September 20th, 2019

Giffords Circus came to Oxford on their 2019 tour and I went along to do some photography as I have done in previous years. It’s always nice to see familiar faces there and some new ones too. For these shots I used a Fuji 6×9 rangefinder camera which has a 90/3.5 lens that is not interchangeable. It’s a hulk of a camera but I really like the large viewfinder and the 3:2 aspect ratio of the frame compared to 6×7. The 90mm isn’t really a portrait lens so I tend to go a little wider than just head and shoulders.

Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 1 – part 4

Saturday, September 7th, 2019

Only a handful of pictures in this post because the rest of the shots on this roll contain spoilers so they will have to wait until after broadcast. This location was used after the scenes at the Oxford Union were finished. I like how Fuji Superia 200 handles colours even in bright sunlight. Too bad it’s not made anymore.

[Tech info:] Leica M6, 40/1.4 Voigtlander Nokton, Fuji Superia 200, Noritsu scans.

Day for night: Endeavour 7, FILM 1 – part 3

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2019

On the August Bank Holiday this year, hottest day of the year so far, the Endeavour crew were hard at work at an undisclosed location and I was fortunate enough to spend the day with them – needless to say it was a scorcher on set. I can only share a few images to avoid spoilers but plenty of others will follow after this episode is broadcast. This was the first time I’d used Lomography 800 film in 120 format and because the sun was setting the light level in the shade was low so I rated the film at ISO 1280 and had it pushed one stop by the lab.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex 2.8F Zeiss Planar, Lomography 800 film, ISO 1280, pushed 1 stop in development, Noritsu scans.

Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 1 – part 2

Tuesday, August 27th, 2019

Behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour 7 | FILM 1 in Oxford, August, 2019. On this day the morning was spent filming inside the Oxford Union and I had used b&w film pushed to ISO 1600 due to the low light levels. After lunch I decided to load a roll of colour film because the colours inside were so rich (those shots will follow after this episode has been broadcast) and I knew the next location would be outdoors and the sun was too bright for ISO 1600.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 2 – part 4

Sunday, April 7th, 2019

This set of behind the scenes photography is from the first Oxford filming day for Endeavour S6 in July 2018 – during the heatwave.  For the first time the episodes were filmed out of sequence and this was FILM 2 – APOLLO, directed by Shaun Evans. For a change I used my Leica Summicron 50mm lens because I’ve found it works very well with colour films but is quite flat with b&w and I planned to use a lot more colour film for this series.

[Tech info:] Leica M6, 50/2 Summicron, Fuji Superia 200 film, Noritsu scans.

Oxford twilight vintage bus rides

Friday, April 5th, 2019

I’ve been looking for the right light conditions to test out some Lomography 800 colour film that I recently bought and after a friend tipped me off about the twilight vintage bus rides I knew that was it. A couple of years ago I photographed them on Fujichrome 64T tungsten balanced slide film but because the film speed was so slow I had to use a tripod the whole time. On this occasion I wanted the freedom to move around handheld so I went along with fast film and a fast lens.

[Tech info:] Nikon F100, 50/1.2 lens, Lomography 800 film, developed and scanned by FilmDev. Noritsu scans.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 3 – part 2

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

Behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour 6, FILM 3 – CONFECTION. The location for the day was the Oxford Union – these pictures are from the William Morris room which is decorated in beautiful Willam Morris wallpaper. I have photographed inside this room many times because the OUABC team use it to warm up in for the Town vs Gown boxing competition. The Endeavour art department did a wonderful job of transforming this room and I’ll post more detailed pictures soon.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex 2.8F, Zeiss Planar, Kodak Portra 400 film. Noritsu scans.

 

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 1 – part 5

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 1 – Pylon. This was a scene that didn’t make the final cut where Morse and Bright chat on the steps outside the Castle Gate police station. Filmed in Oxford, August 2018.

Mapledurham at War 2018 – part 2

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

Here are some portraits I made at a WWII re-enactment event in Mapledurham back in the summer. The weather was overcast which was perfect for the colour palette and colour negative film I was using. These shots are all from the same roll of film through my Rolleiflex 2.8F. Part 1 of my portraits can be found here, made with the same camera but different film. More to come.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex 2.8F, Portra 160VC film (expired).

Bicester: sunday scramble – part 2

Monday, November 12th, 2018

Some pictures from the first Sunday Scramble of this year, held at Bicester Heritage Centre. This roll ended up in the camera for 10 months with one frame remaining so it’s nice to see these shots, finally.

[Tech info:] Fuji 6×9, 90/3.5, Fuji 400H (expired), Noritsu scans.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 2

Wednesday, November 7th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. Day 1 of filming ended on Holywell Street in rapidly falling light thanks to the clocks changing back an hour the previous day. This is something I had anticipated and loaded a roll of Kodak Portra 400 accordingly. Day 2 started on New College Lane in very contrasty sunlight.
