More 35mm shots

It seems that the 35mm is my camera of choice at the moment. Using it throws up so many new possibilities that I never even knew existed on Poppit - which makes the future of Poppit work very exciting for me.

New work from Poppit

A great trip to Poppit on 15th and 16th November. 4 rolls of film taken - two 120 and two 35mm. Out of this there were 2 keepers.

Once again, Poppit gives me something new when I try different techniques - but at the end of the day it comes down to the light.

Admin work to do

Poppit tides are not good for a while so I have been catching up with admin work and figuring out what I am doing currently. I have also bought a vintage camera from ebay (£15) which I hope will allow me to try out some more ideas.

Reaction to my new work has been mixed - maybe because it is so different to what I have been doing now for quite a few years. However for me it is new, fresh and exciting and I hope that by  sticking with it I will be able to show some of that excitement in the work. The way I look at it is that you cannot stay still - the thrill of discovering something is what it is all about - and the process of finding something and working it until it becomes what you want is often tricky and full of dead ends.

The weather takes its toll

Poppit would have been perfect this week but due to the weather and flooding I will probably miss it. However I now have extra time to catch up on admin duties and to work out some more long term plans that have been bubbling away for quite a while.

The next few months look to be busy with some trips abroad visiting galleries while I continue to look for more representation overseas.
