I'm very proud to say that I'm participating in an upcoming group photography show in mid-May at the local Portsmouth gallery Coastguard Studio. Be sure to come down to the opening night if you can and keep up to date on their Facebook page.
The majority of these are taken using my Leica M6 with a 35mm Voigtlander Nokton Classic f1.4 lens and Poundland AgfaPhoto ISO200 at ISO 400. The rest would be my FujiFilm X100, Fuji X-Pro1 or Canonet 17 G-III QL (from Japan Camera Hunter). These are now my 3 go-to cameras for the forseeable future, but I have acquired quite a few more. Having recently added a Holga 120N and Oympus XA1 for carry about point 'n' shoot.
I've recently aquired a Yashica 124G TLR medium format camera from my uncle to add to my collection. I'm mainly using this for a Portraits project for which I'm using Ilford HP5 black and white film - a change from my usual colour street photography with the Leica M6 and AgfaVista film.
I find film an exciting yet thoughtful medium, making me consider more carefully before hitting the shutter.
Adjective: quotidian – Of or occurring every day; daily.
“The car sped noisily off through the quotidian traffic.” Ordinary or everyday; mundane.
Taken with my Yashica 124G TLR camera – I hope that this will become a series of a good few locals over time, and may even find somewhere in physical space to be shown eventually – ideas and possible plans are already in motion.
Portsmouth (Pompey) Football Club is my local team, and this is how I see it as an outsider to the world of football. This also feels like an appropriate project with which to stretch my black and white legs.
Living in Southsea, the beach is a large part of mine and others lives. People often use it in their own unique ways.
