My first photographs using an old SLR, Pentax MX. I was worried all these photos would be either over or under exposed, thankfully my shutter-time judgement was correct. Using a fixed wide angle lens with a completely open aperture was a good first choice, this gave me enough light to play with. I love the warm and green colours produced by this film, the picture inst completely sharp but gives a soft feel.
Experimenting with long exposure has helped me understand more about my camera and how it works, for this project I went to an abandoned barn that would of been pitch black without my torch. I noticed I could create complicated looking lighting setups just using the one torch. A tripod was particulaly important to keep the camera steady while taking these 30″ long exposures, this also allowed me to move around with the light.
Photos taken in my local area, near pitch black I opened the cameras exposure to about 30 seconds, in this time there is enough light to create a visible image.
