Latest roll of 35mm

Once again, a single roll of 35mm gave me two keepers. The 'hit rate' with 35mm seems to be much higher at the moment than with the 120 film - however, as I have seen before, these things all come around eventually and the medium format will come back soon. 
Why this is I have no idea.

On the work front I am taking a number of trips to specific areas with some new ideas. I feel that the work needs to be constantly pushed.

Latest work from Poppit

I am finding now that my work at Poppit has split into two distinct types - both excite me - but in different ways. They are opposites in most respects.

New York Exhibition

The Hasselblad Masters on Tour exhibition is currently at Milk Studios in New York.

A new crop of work

The light on the 20th must have been good at Poppit as I managed to get 5 keepers from 1 roll of film - never done that before. It certainly was an exciting shoot - I still have two more rolls of film to develop - we'll see what they bring.

More work on the book

The tides are good for Poppit this week - yesterday I went out and took just one roll of film as the sun was far too high. Today I will go a little later.

Work on the book is progressing well and I am starting to get some feedback from European galleries as well as some American ones. A lot of work still to do - but it is all moving in the right direction.

Follow up time

I have been working on the film taken on the 7th October - developing, scanning and editing. Overall the end results were not as I had hoped - but I suppose that is what happens when you try new ideas. However, the whole process is good for the next trip.

Out of 7 rolls of film there are two keepers - Oddly, both good shots were within 2 frames of each other - with over 100 shots taken.

The book is coming along nicely but slowly - when it comes to writing about the work everything seems to slow down and become tricky.

Low Tide

Finally there have been a couple of really low tides at Poppit that also matched some good weather. I have been out twice - and both times I tried out some new techniques and adjustments to my current kit. We will see how things turn out when I develop the film.

Overall, seven rolls of film taken - including some more 35mm and colour shots.
