Vikings Killed my Film

Vikings Killed my Film

Mamiyarb67_Cr200_xpro770 - 2014-04-22 at 20-41-41

There was a massive re-enactment of the Battle of Clontarf in my local park recently. It was the millennial celebration of this historic battle and it saw tribes of vikings invade from all over Europe. St Annes parkwas transformed for a few days into a viking settlement and there was a tremendous sense of pageantry. There was food stalls and craft shops selling all manner of Viking paraphernalia…

Pinhole film Swap - Madness!! - where will it all end.
This time we swapped a whole camera.
Monica had a great idea, pinhole double exposures.
She shot a roll of Portra 160 using her Pinholga, rewound that film and reloaded the camera and posted it to me.
Moni shot her side of the project in Oregon - USA. I reshot them in a raft of locations around Ireland.
Camera:Pinholga
Film: Kodak Portra 160
Dev: C41 Kit
You will see more of Moni’s wonderful work at www.flickr.com/photos/pappergank/
or her excellent blog at blatherskiteblog.com/
If you would like to try one of these international film swaps please get in touch. It can be as simple as shooting a roll of film and sticking it in the post.

Someone was asking me today if I have ever tried landscape photography. I am pretty sure that I take landscape pictures all the time but I tend to revert to portraiture.
I shot this a while ago on one of the few occasions that I remember packing a bag with very specific landscape pictures in mine.

Cloudy with a Chance of Sparks

67/365/2014 - Light into Dark

Light painting is one of those things that I really enjoy doing that pretty much forces me to use my digital camera. I have been concentrating on printing in my darkroom for the last few weeks so it was nice to get out into the evening skies. I met up with a bunch of light painting buddies and we filled the night with sparks and lights.

This is always a fun way to spend a few hours. Everything…

So I am cheating with my 365 a little bit here, I originally took this shot in October 2011 but this is a scan of the print I just made in my darkroom.
I have been printing a lot in the last few days so it was this or another photo of my prints hanging to dry.

A full day of photography was rounded off with a fantastic meal in a friends house.
The large windows of the Georgian house allowed a beautiful soft light to spill into the room so I made all the guests sit for quick portraits.

This is not the composition that I had hoped for but remains interesting…

29/365/2014 – It’s Full of Stars

It had been too long since I stayed deep in the Irish countryside. A clear sky surprised me and I was a little annoyed that I had forgotten my cable release but I done my best with the tools to hand. I just held my finger on the button for 62 seconds.

I will make an effort to do this again real soon.
