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: Lunch break photo walk

Monday, September 16th, 2019

Some shots from a test roll I put through a Nikon FA which I recently bought. The first roll had some light leaks so I added light seals for the edges of the back of the camera using strips from a foam sheet I bought at Hobbycraft. Looks like it’s fixed the problem. These were all shot in aperture priority mode using matrix metering. The matrix metering mode only works in aperture priority on the FA, something I didn’t realise. I much prefer to use full manual mode.

[Tech info:] Nikon FA, 35/2.0D Nikon lens, orange filter, TMAX 100 (expired), developed in Tetanol Ultrafin developer. Pakon scans.

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.

[Tech info:] Leica M6, 40/1.4 Voigtlander Nokton, Ilford HP5 pushed to ISO1600, developed in XTOL stock. Pakon scans.

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.

Friday, July 19th, 2019

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour 6 | FILM 6 in some of the interior sets including the new CID set for this series. This was the penultimate day of filming for series 6 and it was a busy day for the cast and crew with lots of different setups.

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 6

Wednesday, June 5th, 2019

First day of filming in Oxford of Endeavour 6 | FILM 2. This was the first episode filmed for series 6 – usually the episodes are made in chronological order. The location was one of the rooms in Exeter College which was beautifully dressed by the art department.

I sent this roll of film away to a lab for developing and unfortunately it came back with a scratch through the middle. Needless to say I haven’t used them since (thanks Ag Photo lab!).

Oxford: Town vs Gown Boxing 2019 – part 1

Friday, February 1st, 2019

The annual Oxford Town vs Gown boxing event was held at the Oxford Union at the end of January and I went along to document it with my camera. The lighting was far from ideal with lots of hot spots and dark shadows from the spot lights in the corners of the ring so I used the situation to experiment a little. The majority of these shots were made with a slow shutter speed to record some blur as the boxers moved around at great speed. More to come.

Oxford Union – Kurupt FM Q&A

Thursday, January 17th, 2019

Kurupt FM (AKA the guys from the BAFTA award winning comedy series ‘People just do nothing’) came to the Oxford Union for a Q&A event and I went along to photograph them. If you’ve never seen the show I highly recommend it – you can find it on BBC iPlayer.

Oxford: Endeavour 5, FILM 1 – part 6

Tuesday, December 25th, 2018

Behind the scenes during filming of Endeavour series 5, FILM 1 in Oxford on 30th October 2017. Despite the overcast looking light I think it was fairly bright on this day because I used a relatively slow film, certainly slower than I usually would on a dull day. It was nice not to be fighting contrast for a change.
