Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 3 – part 1

Saturday, November 2nd, 2019

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 7 | FILM 3 in Merton College, Oxford. A cold day for the cast and crew but at least it wasn’t raining! As usual, no spoilers. More pictures to follow after UK broadcast.

Oxford: Endeavour 7, FILM 2 – part 1

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

The Endeavour crew were back in town to work on FILM 2 of Endeavour series 7 and I did some behind the scenes photography. As usual you won’t find any spoilers here. More pictures will follow after UK broadcast. There was a brief passing shower in the morning and then the rest of the day stayed mainly overcast which seems to have worked nicely with the film I was using (Eastman Double X). Usually I would develop this film in Kodak D76 but I decided to splurge on the correct developer which is Kodak D96 and I’m glad I did because these are the best tones I have seen from this film considering the dull light.

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.

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 7, FILM 1 – part 1

Tuesday, August 20th, 2019

Filming has begun on Endeavour series 7 and I was fortunate enough to document the cast and crew at work in Oxford recently. Lots of familiar faces and some new ones too.
For this roll I rated it at ISO1600 because of the low light level indoors but when I went outdoors I knew the highlights were going to blow out so I reduced development time by 10% to reduce the contrast a little. This is something I have started to do more recently and so far I like the results.

As usual on this blog, all images will be spoiler-free until after each FILM has been broadcast.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 8

Thursday, August 1st, 2019

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in Oxford, October 2018. This is the ‘pelican man’ scene that was filmed on New College Lane on a very overcast day with a rapidly dropping light level. As usual the crew pulled it off just as the street lights started coming on.

Oxford: Documenting Jericho

Tuesday, July 30th, 2019

This set of pictures is part of an ongoing project to document the historic suburb of Jericho in Oxford which I have been doing on and off since 2013 mainly during my lunch break. It’s possible I have pictures from before 2013 but that’s the oldest date in my archive that I have tagged ‘Jericho’. Whenever I have a camera or film to test I often walk around Jericho and see what catches my eye, often photographing the same things in different light at different times of the year. The streets are usually very quiet which is why I don’t have many pictures of people. Quiet pictures of a quiet place.

A whole range of film formats is represented here from 35mm up to 5×4 large format. Hopefully soon I will be doing some 10×8 photography around Jericho but that won’t be during my lunch break!

These pictures were made with the following cameras: Bronica ETRSi, Rolleiflex 3.5 Automat, Bronica SQA, Pentax 645, Leica M6, Yashica Electro 35, Graflex Crown Graphic, Pentax P30N; and the following films: Ilford FP4, Kodak Plus-X, Eastman Double X, Fuji Acros 100, Kodak Tri-X.

Oxford: Endeavour 6, FILM 4 – part 6

Wednesday, June 12th, 2019

Behind the scenes photography during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 4 in November 2018. This was the penultimate day of filming on the series and my last day documenting the crew. It was all interiors in the studio on this day with various scenes filmed out of order which I found both intriguing and confusing.

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.
