I’ve recently decided to do a type of weekly showcase of photographs that inspire me, to get a bit more content on the blog. Also, who doesn’t like a bit of free publicity when they deserve it!
Untitled by aeroplaneclinic
We’ll start with this awesome black & white film photograph by areoplaneclinic shot on Fuji Neopan with an Olympus OM-1. You can almost see a high contrast style being developed if you look at the rest of his black & white shots. Really nice stuff
Abandoned Driveway (Film) by Tom Raworth
Here’s another black & white film shot by Tom Raworth. From the look of it, I think it’s shot on Ilford XP2 400, a C41 B&W film, hence the slight greenish colour tint. I really like this shot for several reasons. There’s a ton of stuff to look at. The van’s open door seems to direct the eye towards what looks to be an abandoned shack. Contrary to the last photograph, this one has a slightly lower contrast because of the sun’s glare. I find that it gives the photo a semi warm & cosy feel. Good work.
Neasden by Isaac Brownbridge
Here’s the last one for this week, a generally low key shot by Isaac Brownbridge, this time digital. Shot on a Canon EOS 1000D using what I think is the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 lens allowing for faster shutter speeds in the dark. The reason I really like this shot is the reflection of the lights on the rails fade to black at the bottom of the photograph. Same goes with the top. It makes the rails look like if they were infinite. It’s a really visually interesting photograph.
That’s all for this week. I hope you enjoyed my ramblings about what I find inspiring!
