Exhibition coming up! I had a sneak preview this morning and it looks like it is going to be an exciting show! My image has been used as part of the advertising, and another image by me will be presented in the exhibition. There will be a wide range of work by a wide range of photographers, hence the name “Full Basket”.

My final A3 print of the images taken with the medium format camera. The images from this camera are square and putting a square image on A3 paper leaves a lot of space around it. I did not want that, so I combined two images. Initially I printed the one with the white spaces, and then thought it would look better with the black spaces, and it does. Even though, there is a lot of black the image has still got a feeling of lightness and I like how the bubbles are blown upwards, and how the woman is looking up, seemingly into oblivion. Lastly, I find it interesting that if you look at this image from further away, it looks like the two bottom images are the woman’s arms.

Today I learnt that you can actually do continuous shooting with the digital medium format camera! All you need is a motordrive which sits on the bottom of the camera and operates on batteries.

Here are some images that I promised yesterday, taken with a Mamiya RZ67 with digital back Hasselblad Ixpress96.
