a lot of my ramblings to date have been concerned with things Digital. But hey!! there is a far more sinister side to photography once controlled by people who conveniently located themselves in dark basements, and huddled over huge deep tanks of Dev and fixer etc. Oh yes the world of film.
I have avoided talking about this until I had a few credible articles under my belt as I did not want to be misunderstood. you see, I like both film and digital.
They are both very credible media but digital being now the more accessible, complete with instant feedback, has become the medium of the dabbler. Artists, architects, designers, and other creative professionals also use digital photography to document their work whilst the use of film and paper seems to be becoming a minority sport
it is my opinion,( being someone working in both mediums)in some ways that there is less to film photography than digital.
you get what you shoot,right there, shure you got to get it right first time,but that comes with practise,you can get use to that after a few years!!
anyhow! On with the show! Film! I love it.
so I have included in this gallery images shot and Polaroid type 55 film.
( my favourite black-and-white film of all time) it is my intention to continue this work into the future and may invite other practitioners of this medium to join me in an exhibition of type 55
images later in the year.
click the title above for the gallery of 5 images

as it is a great help to me!!
