ANALOGUE NATURE STILLS, CAFFENOL PROCESSING AND PERCEPTION RE-NEWED. I’m from a world of photography, that mostly want focused, pretty
it, expose, decide on flash or not, move the camera slightly on
images. There’s no room for film winding errors, accidental
a slow shutter exposure and so on. The loss of control comes
double exposures and weird scanner decisions. I was trying to
from me being forgetful, the state of my equipment, processing
loose a bit of control when I was out in the woods, shooting more
the film, scanning the images - embracing the errors instead of
from the hip which was hard for me to do and I don’t think I really
discarding them - and the subsequent reflection on what makes
believe in it. It’s much more interesting to consider it a controlled
the image ‘great’, eventually going for the ‘ugly ducklings’ instead
loss of control, since I still consciously choose my subject, frame
of the more ‘perfect swans’.
