Well, the weather was still crap today. But i decided to power through anyways and carry the large format camera around. I headed over to Gemma’s and Jon’s place. For those in my course, i would tell u to check out my elephant blog on the university’s server… i think the picture on there is more interesting. the light wasnt great, but i decided to try it anyways hoping the dynamic range of a 4×5 negative would give me something to work with. sorry for those who dont know the technical jargon. it means pretty much that i was shooting the picture hoping for something to turn out. i was thinking of adding artificial light, but just couldn’t manage to carry everything around. so i decided to leave the lighting kit at marios. i am so grateful for him letting me use his room as a storage space for the 4×5 camera, tripod, and lighting kit. otherwise, i would have to carry that every time all the way up to north london. its hard enough carrying it across the street to the heygate estate. i think i got some decent shots today, fingers crossed. i shot 6 negs. i have 2 more families tomorrow and one of them invited me to sunday roast next sunday. i actually went to get sunday roast today w/ hubert. anyone interested in a cool atmosphere and a decent cheap roast lunch, head over to Tankard’s on walworth road (its right before the mcdonalds). it was recommended to me by chris, one of the guys living in the heygate estate. after all my work today, i went to dinner w/ mario and nuria at the chinese spot across uni. another decent and cheap spot. then we went back to his place for a nice relaxing puff of the hooka. brilliant invention!
