So the leg waxing is finally over, with help from our now bold volunteers Luke, Russell and me we raised just around £100. Also thanks for our pro leg waxer Tory for bringing in the waxing equipment. and of course everyone else that help pull of a strip or two.
Also a thank you to the Old Vic for letting us use your upstairs to host the leg waxing.
It was not the best experience in the world, and now I feel like a worm when I’m in bed, my sheets keep falling of my legs :( . But its all for a good cause so it was worth it.
First shoot for brief 2, angles, edges and lines. Im photographing interesting architectual designs, any patterns and symmetry that is photographically pleasing to the eye.
Just found a replacement lens hood if the old one brakes lol.
Group meeting today, discussing our last fundraising event, sponsored wax. Organising for postcards to be made for the exhibition.
So these are the 2 negs got from my first shoot with the 5x4, I think they turned out a little dark, also one of them had some light leak on the top, thats because one of the sliders accidentally slid open. Over all I am very happy with them.
Our first commission brief photo shoot, with the Shen Hao (Hen House) 5x4 camera. there were a few hick ups with the shoot, first our model had a lecture half way through and had to leave, but luckily Roberto had found another to cover. Also the wireless cable for the 2 portable flashes was missing so we had to connect one light with a cable from the camera to the flash, not ideal.
Apart from the mishaps it was an amazing experience shooting with the large format cameras, and it is a camera that I will defiantly shoot with in the future, because of the amazing detail and aspect ratio of the film.
Using 5x4 film really makes you concentrate on what you are shooting, you check, double check and triple check everything because you only get one chance with each shot, and with each slide of film costing about £3 you really don’t what to have to re-shoot the photo.
If we were to redo the shoot I think we would have to make sure the model was committed to staying the whole day. We would also have to make more of a plan on what we are shooting, this would have sped the whole process up.
My favourite image from the storm, i think the lights make it look really gloomy

The questions for the quiz, Sunday night was a success, we raised a reasonable amount of money thanks to the cake makers and sponsors for the raffle. I was the maker of the quiz questions and the quiz master. from the response it was a successful evening. Thanks everyone for coming.
