As far as photographing large format goes..

Its ridiculously expensive
Its pretty damn awkward
Its heavy
Its very time consuming


most of all

Its impossible to get a dust free image while trying to juggle all the other things going on.

Here is a wonderful shot i managed to get right a few weeks back in Bristol. Turns out its got some sort of ridiculous piece of hair on the neg.

Sucks, but these are the things that you learn from. Next time i know DUST is even more of a priority than before.

Check the detail of this beast in the second image.



Got to get his books asap.


After an extremely busy period, I now have absolutely nothing to really think about. I'm back home in Cornwall, the air is cold and i am pretty much car-less. Anyone from my area will realize this isn't such a good thing at all.

Anyway, over the last couple of weeks i have been getting extremely into RADIOHEAD. I have never liked the band but after seeing them at Reading this year i totally changed my perspective. Now, these last two or so weeks they have become the sole artist i can actually listen to. I watched their set from Reading about 4 times in 4 days. 2 of those in one day. It was incredible. Even though i didn't think too much of them at the time, i look back now and find it hard not to feel emotions running through my body when i see footage of the set.

These few weeks at home are going to be exciting. Hopefully a lot of photography and relaxing. Something i haven't done properly in a long time.

Also, hopefully quite a lot of blogging too.
