Oxford: 10×8 photography

Saturday, September 14th, 2019

For the longest time I have wanted to take my 10×8 camera into town to do some large format photography and recently I finally managed to do it on a Saturday morning. Even though I only took one lens – the smallest and lightest I have that is suitable for 10×8 photography – the combined weight of the camera, tripod and film holders is more than my back can comfortably handle so I have to drag the camera around with a foldable hand cart which works really well. I took with me both Ilford Delta 100 b&w film and Fuji Velvia 100F transparency film. Below are a couple of shots made with the Delta 100, I’ve processed the Velvia and the shots turned out very nicely but I haven’t scanned them yet. The group shot of the Zappi’s Cycling Club was very impromptu – I was photographing the Sheldonian Theatre on Broad Street when I was approached by one of the cyclists about photographing them with my big camera.

[Tech info:] 10×8 field camera, Nikon 210mm f5.6 lens, Delta 100 film (expired), developed in Ilford DD-X with a Jobo processor.

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.

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

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: 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: 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.

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.
