Barton Hill – Film Shoot
Today I went back to the house I visited last week to take some more photos with a film camera, this will allow me to have more resources in the future for my final piece. I went out using a Pentax K1000 camera along with 2 different lenses, 50mm and 28-70mm as I wanted to capture a range of different photos and taking the 2 lenses would allow me to get photos with different depth of fields and opportunities.
An idea that I have come up with recently is creating a film animation in the future for the final piece so I want to get some shots of the location from a point of view of a police investigation. With police investigation boards you always see photos of the location and any suspects and victims etc so I planned to gather as much of this as I can so I took photos of the house and the adjacent farm.
I had some problems with my camera while I was there so I didn’t manage to capture as many photos as I wanted and when I came to developing them some photos had been ruined, I think this was due to the spool not moving the film across when a picture was being taken and it caused the entire camera to jam. I can make these imperfections work as it can make the board look old and rugged though, so I may be able to use these to my advantage. During the developing process, I did have to really play around with the exposure times due to the reel being a bit ruined and I had to expose the photos for around 20 seconds to get a semi-clear photo. Here is how some of the photos looked and you can see the marks on them.
