RB67 film portraits

I was in the studio today using the Mamiya RB67 medium format film camera. I’m a digital boy at heart but have to admit I was impressed by this hefty chunk of metal, the images it produced were fairly sharp and I think with a digital back you could get some pretty impressive results with this camera. For the portraits I used a two light setup with Beauty dish to the front above the subject and a snooted light to the rear a stop down to create the spotlight. Here are a couple of my favourite images below.  Remember to click for a bigger image Enjoy!

Little Germany

In today’s lecture we were all given a grid square on a map of Little Germany in Bradford. We were then asked to shoot a range of images within that location of interest. I wanted to focus on Merchants House and upon reading the plaque outside of the building decided that I would look at the different building materials used to construct building within Peckover Street. I have scanned in my images below as they were shot on film.

Homage to Sin City (cinematography)

After watching Sin City the other night I got inspired by the style of the cinematography. I took the concept and tried to apply it to my body of five images from the “Tasteless” keyword project. I used Photoshop for the edits mainly different blending options, layer masks and filters. I liked the effect it had on my images. Enjoy!

Ultimate sin!

Ouch! Nasty potato!

Potatoes are tasteless

A couple of weeks ago I was set a mini brief. I had to shoot a range of five images based around a keyword from a magazine. The keyword I ended up with was “Tasteless”. I looked for inspiration and decided to take the literal meaning of the word taking food that I find tasteless. In this case it was potatoes. I looked at the metaphorical meaning of the word which was to represent something “shocking”, “Vulgar”, or in “Bad taste” so I decided to create a scene of domestic violence. In this scene I have Mrs Potato Head walking in on Mr Potato Head committing the ultimate sin…….eating a potato! The images spiral into a struggle and fight scene ending with Mrs Potato Head in a very “Tasteless” situation. In the background of most of the shots I have included other items that some people think have a horrible taste. Enjoy!

Ultimate sin!
