Rutland Water

For the last few days I have taken advantage of the splendid weather that we have been experiencing by partaking in scenic rural walks, before heading off to a cooler climate in Iceland.

 

Here are some images that I took…Enjoy!

 

 

Landscape Film Images

Finally developed and printed out my black and white film, square format landscapes, as inspired by the photographer Fay Godwin who I researched back in October.

I decided to print out 5 of my favourite images from the 2 rolls of film that I took. My particular favourite is the 3rd image with the rocks and the water, I like the composition of the image and the contrast, although it does look better on the hard copy as opposed to the digital scan on here. In the darkroom the images were exposed for 3.5 seconds at F8 using a 2½ contrast filter.
