No digital shooting today as I grabbed a couple of hours to use the Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera. Loaded with Ilford Pan F 50 120 film, I roamed Southsea and look forward to processing the results next week where I will shortly produce some prints to share.
This evening was the annual HMS Sultan firework night where I took the chance to stretch the legs of my new camera and its abilities when working at High ISO and I’m incredibly impressed! Not dropping below 1600 ISO the images were consistently strong even when zoomed in on to. The atmosphere and feeling of the fireworks with the crowd around made them very enjoyable to shoot.
Following a disappointing trip out with the camera yesterday today was refreshing and more successful. An early fog lead to damp foliage which in turn made for some beautiful images.
I took full advantage of this mornings high tide and overcast sky to introduce the new camera to the Cokin Nuance filters. Creating long exposures in daylight can be great fun and a challenge to meter.
After a very busy half term of teaching Photography I’m quite looking forward to a break with loads of shooting! Including todays first outing with the new camera!
This also means overdue updates to the website!
