I’ve just found something i’m definitely putting on next years christmas list…these beautiful camera bags by Kelly Moore!
Not only do they look pretty, but they are water resistant, padded, and have velcro removable divides (along with lots of other handy features!)
Also I love that they don’t look like camera bags, so people don’t know you’ve got expensive camera equipment on you!
There’s also some really nice camera bags for men!
I’m currently creating photograms in the sea using colour darkroom paper. It’s lots of fun but a bit of a mission! I’m not allowed to use the developing machines in uni because the paper is dirty and could contaminate the chemicals in the machine. So i’m hand developing each print (don’t try this at home kids! the chemicals are very nasty!). I have to develop the work in complete darkness, so i’ve made a little bathroom in our house into a darkroom! It’s great, i develop my prints at night just to make sure its pitch black in there, and i’ve got a little radio to keep me company.
Excuse the AWFUL phone photos!
I’ve been featured on pictureperfectplussome.blogspot. Its a really interesting blog with lots of photography, thoughts, poems, music and videos on it. Nice one!
we used some polaroid film on a Mamiya RZ in the studio the other day - here’s the effect of rubbing the backing paper bit onto paper -
Amy & Olivia looking pretty victorian:
…and here’s the actual polaroid of me that Dan took. Lovely!
aslanta asked: i love your photographs :) from the telephone underwater to your recent wedding veil. I've always wanted to do underwater photography, but i have no idea where to do it. I'm hoping to go down to Brighton for a photography foundation course, it seems lovely down there :)
Hello! Thank you so much! I photographed the underwater image in a swimming pool, but you could do it in the sea/river anywhere! Brighton is so lovely and amazingly creative, you should defo try and come down here!
I’m currently working on photographing my mums wedding veil. The images have a ghostly, strange and maybe confusing feel to link in with the death of my dad & the feelings I had as a 6 year old when he died.
After an absolute nightmare with 2 rolls of film that didn’t expose properly, this is my first scan of one of negatives that actually came out on my colour film!
Anyways….off to the darkroom now to see what the black & white film of the veil has turned out like! x
Simon Callow’s ‘Tuesdays at Tescos’ was the first show Rachel & I saw at Edinburgh festival this year. Love this portrait of him by Rachel!
