Some Photos Wot I Took
So for Olivia's 22nd birthday we held a 1920's stlye speakeasy party, with much dressing up and fun. I used a black and white Ilford film (400iso) in my brand new Fujica Flash 2 camera, which was £2.99 in a charity shop. I'm very satisfied with the prints and would champion old-style photography over digital in a heartbeat. There is something really magical about holding a photograph in your hand. Of course this point is completely obliterated because I have to upload them onto a screen in order to share them. How IRONIC.
As a footnote, if anyone featured in the photographs feels a bit uneasy about them being shared over the internet please just let me know and I'll take the offending items down.
I've also been reading a lot of Edgar Allan Poe for my new project (Narrative Illustration). The Tell Tale Heart is super.. "Villains!...dissemble no more! I admit the deed! - tear up the planks! - here, here! - it is the beating of his hideous heart!"
