Shanghai 09
The photos are now up! 18 Hand processed, cared for and thought about black and white images. The experience of shooting in such an alien environment gave me a great insight into photography. It was great to see somewhere as a complete unknowledgeable outsider, and to see somewhere completely fresh rather than the normal and expected. Shooting on film made me think about the images more. I knew I would spend a lot of time and effort processing and scanning the images, so I only took images that I was confident would be a sucess, rather than the usual happy snapping digital method of taking as many as you want and breezing through to find t
Coming SOON
I just got back from a 2 1/2 week trip to Shanghai, China. I photographed from the slums to the expensive high-rise bars, and got a good feel for what Shanghai is all about, and took some photographs that I will be very pleased with When I get the time to hand-process 12 rolls of black and white film and scan them. So keep watching, a journal will pop up, and there will be many many new photographs

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the comments, much appreciated.

See you in a few weeks back for the start of term. BTW, great shots of Shanghai, particularly the B&W shots 10 & 13, there's a real sense of scale to them.

Cheers,

Matt
