Manifest Arts Festival - Open Studio


As part of Manifest Arts Festival me and Kochi Kochi opened up our studio. To keep things interesting I decided to drag out some of the old photographic paper that I picked up a while ago. It's expired and so the quality of it isn't great for printing on. What it does do is make for a great, cheap way to shoot with my 4x5 camera. 

Shooting with this non-standard process is probably not a good way to get into 4x5 because it doesn't have some of the benefits, but as a bit of an exercise in composition it can be fun.

So I set up a small backdrop in the studio and asked people who came in to pose for a photograph. I offered a dark and stormy to everyone in return. 

I also shot some 4x5 film so if I shot your photograph and it isn't here then it will have been done on film, which should be much better fidelity.
