We were set a brief at college to complete a landscape shoot with light in mind i thought i would push myself to shoot with film and a separate spot meter . not only did this offer up the challenge of having an in depth understanding of light but also lots of fun for me. the main reason i opted for film is medium format can offer me better tonal range than my digital equipment. The client was the Cornwall tourist board i aimed to take shots at various different locations to try and give a wide variety of different spots. i find every time i go to cornwall there are more and more places to discover so i shot some of the more obvious tourism locations but also others that are not too well known. . i shot mainly on medium format colour reversal film (velvia/provia) so there really is no exposure latitude meaning you have to get it right in camera. i spent pretty much two days in the darkroom developing each roll of film by hand as i wanted to ensure the shots came out the way i wanted them and didn’t have faith in any labs to take care of them for me. Below are the final images i opted for but i assure you there are lots more.
please let me know if there is anything you like or dislike about these images or indeed if you would like to see more
