Oxford: Keble Ball 2013 part 3

Wednesday, May 15th, 2013

These shots are from a roll of medium format film that I shot at the 2013 Keble Ball. This is every frame from the roll. The start of the ball is always tricky for photography because I was racing against the fading light as the sun started to drop behind the college buildings as well as trying to stop people to photograph them amidst the flood of guests that were pouring in. It was helpful that I had photographed at last year’s ball so I knew what to expect.

[Tech info:] Mamiya C330f, 80/2.8 lens, loaded with Kodak Tri-X 400 film which I processed in Kodak HC110 1+31 for 7:30.

Here are the rest of the shots from the first roll of film that I developed from the 2013 Keble ball. I forgot to label which ISO speed I had exposed this roll at on the night so when it came to developing the roll I had to make a guess and unfortunately I was wrong so this roll is underdeveloped. It’s amazing that there are any images on the roll at all. Less on to self, must label rolls when you take them out of the camera!

Oxford: Keble ball 2013 part 1

Friday, May 10th, 2013

Last year (2012) I photographed at the Keble ball and the ball committee were so pleased with my photography that they asked me back to photograph at this years’ and of course I said yes. It was nice to see some familiar faces that I had photographed there last year and I in turn got recognised too. Just as I did previously I shot with both film and digital – the digital ones I’ve uploaded to Facebook, the film ones I will post here.

So far I’ve developed one roll from the night and below are the first four frames as a bit of a teaser.

Oxford: Wish Want Wear part 3

Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013

Here are some shots from the second salon day at Keble College held by dress hire company Wish Want Wear. This was a lunch break shoot so I only had half an hour shooting time. Katherine did an amazing job at changing outfits in record time. I’ll be photographing at the Keble Ball on 4th May and I’m really looking forward to it.

[Tech info:] Mamiya RB67, 90mm lens on Fuji FP100C instant pack film.

 

Oxford: Wish Want Wear part 2

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

During my photo shoot at the Wish Want Wear salon day at Keble College, Oxford, not only did I shoot with digital and film, I also shot some Fuji instant pack film (aka Fujiroids). Here they are below. Unfortunately I only had 5 sheets left in the pack and I didn’t take any more with me which was a real shame because these were a huge hit. Keble is such a great location and I am very much looking forward to photographing at the Keble College summer ball that is coming up next month.

[Tech info:] Mamiya RB67, 90mm lens with an Arca Swiss sliding Polaroid back that allows me to shoot two shots on each sheet.

Photo shoot: Salon day, Keble College

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Last week there was a salon day at Keble College where a designer dress hire company (Wish Want Wear) brought in lots of ball gowns for girls to try on to see whether they wanted to hire them for one of the many college balls that are being held this summer. I was invited along to do some photography (I photographed Keble’s ball last year) and here are some of the results. I shot quite a lot so there will be other shots to follow. For this shoot I decided to experiment quite a lot more than I would normally as a way of learning. For example I wouldn’t usually photograph someone backlit by a window. My thanks go to Mel for being so patient while I juggled with different cameras and to Katherine for inviting me. I’m really looking forward to this year’s Keble ball.

Drama: Killing Hitler

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Back in May I was invited to do some photography during the dress rehearsal of a theatre production called Killing Hitler by the director of the production. Unfortunately I couldn’t make it so instead I went along to the opening night to try to squeeze in a little photography during curtain up. You’d think I would have learnt my lesson from trying that during a production of Cabaret with not a huge amount of success but I felt it was worth a try. Needless to say the cast and crew had more important things on their minds than to make time for my photography so all I managed to get was these three shots. It’s a shame because the set for the opening scene looked really good with the lighting. My thanks go to the director, Lucie Dawkins and the cast and crew for putting up with me.
