Japanese advertising photography has this trend of creating a very flat, no contrast image with a very particular blue / grey tone as the background. It's quite a unique style and very particular to Japan I feel.Anyway, in place of actually shooting anything new I thought I would revisit a few of the 100,000+ images that are sitting on my computer and see if anything could be done to an existing image. I failed to replicate the blue / grey tone but felt I came up with something a little different in terms of colour and softness. I'll be thinking more along those lines this spring.
Another archive shot.Not much from me for a long time. Work is busy. I've been working on another photographic project but this one isn't going digital. If you want to see it you're going to have to track me down in person.
It seem every year I have to do flower shots. I'm sure I'll do more but this year I ran out of energy. It seems you can only do the same subject for so long before you need a rest.Fitting that I chose to take a break and make the last of these shots a chocolate Polaroid. The colours somehow seem to fit the subject.
So I am finding more and more that I need to sit on new images I make for more than a year before they start to grow on me. This shot is from two years ago and I've finally decided I like it so now it get's posted. I tend to like shots that don't like I've taken them or I need to leave then until I have no attachment at all and I can maybe see them in a different light and have a subjective view of the shot. I've not been shooting much. Busy with work. Lot's of new little updates coming in the following months I hope. Stay tuned.
The second shot of the roll that I took with the Holga when I went to Nara. This was the only other shot that worked.I have to say, I do enjoy the Holga's randomness when it comes to focus, colours, tones etc. You've usually either got an instant hit or a complete failure. This, I think was shot with Velvia 100.
