Progress with the New Countess

A windless, bright day meant I could take the Countess into the garden and learn more about how it performs.

Successful experiments with low light and hight contrast situations have been encouraging. Focal lengths from 4 to 10 inches were tried with F stops from F6.3 to F45.

Exposure times ranged from 2 to 10 seconds.

However focussing is still difficult – I was waiting for a replacement screen that arrived a day later.
Here are pictures to show the difference in screen thickness.

A dedicated photographer of the environment, weather, landscape and its inhabitants, I have assembled a collection of awe-inspiring images for this exhibition. Many in colour, but a number in black & white - a medium which suits my love of the dramatic in photography. Starting from these photographs, I have produced linocuts and woodcuts as well as sculptures in wood. Each of these inspired by what is seen on my many walks in the region and beyond. A passionate experimenter, I am enjoying working with antique cameras and alternative photographic processes to make images that are more about conveying feeling, emotion, memory than they are about being a pixel perfect record of a moment in in time.
