The photograph below was taken of my wife’s nan, Joan Stevens, a week before she passed away. The image was taken in the hospice where she passed only a week later. The image continues my photographic exploration. Today we put her to rest.
The image was taken using a Zero Image 2000 pinhole camera, Ilford Pan F 50 film and a 30 minute exposure.
It’s been a while since a post of any kind. Life is busy with teaching photography and that is ticking along nicely. More of a rythem is needed with my own blogging about my own photographic exploits.
For now here are two star trails from the weekend just gone, enjoy!
One thing I’ve wanted to do for a very long time has been to use a tripod in the front passenger footwell of a car at night. I love the abstract light trails which don’t have complete coherency
The Milky Way is something I’ve always wanted to photograph but needed to enthuse myself to get out and do it.
Recently on a camping trip in the New Forest I trekked out to Hurst Castle at about 1am and finally captured one!
This has ignighted a growing spark for astro-photography and I hope is the first of many!
