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 1

Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 6, FILM 3 in Oxford. I only managed to catch the last few hours of this day’s filming but in order to avoid spoilers I only have a handful of shots to share from this roll at the moment. As usual, I will post more after broadcast.

[Tech info:] Leica M6, 40/1.4 Voigtlander Nokton, Kodak Portra 400, Noritsu scans.

 

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 2 – part 1

Thursday, July 19th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of FILM 2 of Endeavour series 6 in North Oxford. Mainly crew pictures from this roll, no spoilers! Other pictures will follow after broadcast some time in 2019. For a change I have been using colour film instead of b&w but I may change things up a bit – I’m still undecided about that. On this occasion I dusted off one of my least used lenses – a 50/2.0 Summicron lens which originally came with my M2 but when I tested it with b&w film I found the contrast to be lacking for my taste. It does however produce very nice results on colour film so I decided to use it on this occasion.

[Tech info:] Leica M6, 50/2.0 Summicron lens, Kodak Gold 200, Fuji Frontier scans.

Oxford: recent filming

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

There has been quite a flurry of filming activity on the streets of Oxford recently and I’ve photographed some of it. The scorching temperatures have slowed down the amount of photography I’ve been doing lately but I braved the heat when a certain crew rolled into town to film the next instalments of Oxford’s best loved detective. No spoilers.

[Tech info]: Rolleiflex 2.8F, Fuji 400H (expired), Fuji Frontier scans.

Bicester: sunday scramble – part 1

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Here are some pictures from my first visit to the Bicester Heritage Centre where they were holding a sunday scramble classic car event. It was very busy so I didn’t manage to get many opportunities to make  shots with a clear background.

[Tech info:] Fuji 6×9, Fuji 400H film (expired), dev and scanned by FilmDev.co.uk
