After the almost-documentary photography of Burning Nest, I wanted to try something a bit creative, and without much expectation of an end result. I bought a job lot of cheap Cokin filters from eBay a while ago, including some shaped bokeh filters, and a multi-image glass filter, that splits the image into 5 parts. While visiting a friend in Norwich, we got some fairy lights out of his loft, and shot a roll of images in the dark using the filters. Then, I rewound the film (being careful to leave the leader out) and re-shot the roll in the nearby woods, Mousehold Heath.
SQ-A, Portra 400, 80mm lens. Norfolk, Mousehold Heath.
Getting to grips a little more with the Bronica SQ-A. I’ve realised that I need to GET CLOSER. Lots of these shots looked so different in my mind, so I need to amend that next time.
Colours came out nicely, and the latitude of the Portra was welcome when moving from woodland to open field, and forgetting to adjust the meter.
