“Pendolare” is the Italian verb to describe something being like a pendulum going back and for, and also used to describe commuting to and from work. About a year ago the office that the company I work for moved from an out of town and drive-able location to a new building in the city centre, meaning I could no longer drive to work and now had to catch a train. Because of this I realised I had time to read a lot more on the journey and also be able to take a camera with me and document my journey. For the last 12 months this is what I’ve been doing. I decided to go with the title as it happened to be a word I picked up during one of my Italian language classes and I thought it sounded a bit more interesting than boring old English.
Below are some of the images I made across the last year on my regular journey, they’re from a variety of film stocks and cameras and are both digital and analogue, including; Olympus OMD EM5, Olympus OM-1 and Canon AE-1 Programme, Ilford FP4 125 and Fomapan Classic 100. I hope you enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
OK so at the end of last year I wrote a post about making some resolutions for the New Year specifically with regards to my photography, I think it was pretty successful and made me strive to become better (whether or not I actually did become better is open for debate of course). Now in my end of year review post, which came out yesterday if you want to have a nose at it, I discussed last years resolutions and their varying successes and failings so I will not be talking about them here. What we’re going to talk about here are resolutions for the coming year, there is no order of preference or importance so make of each one what you will. Lets get down to it. (more…)
This has been the first subject where I’ve had to do a little more than just pick up my camera and shoot, after all it’s not the most in depth of categories, literally the brief for this week, the colour red. So for I had to do a little bit of thinking for this one, and the end result is below.
Nikon D5200, AF-S Nikkor 50mm 1:1.4G, Sigma EF-610 DG ST flash unit, ISO 100, F10, 1/125th sec. (more…)
