Without further ado, and with much deliberation, the final three images from my mini 6 week bridge project. The task was to shoot a particular location and create a series using three photos. The advise and guidance of one of the photographer’s running the project really helped me with the narrative and sequencing. Hope you guys enjoy and would love to hear your thoughts
A quick post of some photos which could potentially be part of my final three selections. I just need to clarify the narrative. Despair as a whole in the bridge? Personally a more compelling theme and will hold an interesting narrative.
I had initially started off with an interest on the City narrative and the human narrative as could be seen in this bridge.
But how do you show the state vs human & does it even apply in the area I had chosen? It’s not really a contested space. There is a sign saying no lying down, sitting or standing on the side walls but I had not seen it enforced.
So I have not had the chance to shoot nor scan the 3 remaining rolls of my processed superia 400 film.
Plus I am finding it difficult to pick the three photos aswell. How do you choose them as a coherent set? What narrative do I wish to show? Portraiture? Shadows? Still life?
Perhaps Morning, Lunch and Late in the afternoon? Decisions decisions. Tips and advice welcome!
So I’ve been away on hiatus for about 3 years haha. Easily explained by the cost of film and my low hit rate with it. Fast forward to 2017 and I think I am starting to finally get the hang of photography and the courage to talk to strangers when doing some street photography.
Man I do miss shooting film. I’ve already shot 6 rolls this year! Back with a vengeance. I bought a scanner last year too which is helping with the cost. I am planning to get some equipment to process some C41 film this week.
Photos are from a Superia 400 roll shot last year.
On the season 3 finale of ABC’s Perception, they may have leaked a new digital rangefinder but with a film advance lever!!!
Well that or have a very bad knowledge in today’s photography developments.
POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT……
A man hides in a closet taking photos with a camera which appears to be a leica. What makes the scene so funny is that he winds the lever of the rangefinder after pressing the shutter. It then goes to a a scene of the viewfinder which looks like a modern day canon/nikon dslr. With these settings…
f5.6 ISO 320 1/100
He continues to wind and shoot, with subsequent still shots shown as the images taken.
Its all in the details and I felt that was a major oversight/lack of research… Unless I am mistaken and there are digital camera’s with a film advance lever as novelty…….
Maybe I am just too much of a photog nerd.
