...longer exposure

My another approach to landscape photography. Long exposure coastal scapes - the only sort of landscape images which draw my attention. I was trying this before a few times as some of you (who know my flickr stream) already know.
I chose Dun Laoghaire. Very nice, diversified coastline and it’s just a few minutes by Dart form my place. Weather this time wasn’t really helpful. Too much sun, lack of clouds and wind is the first thing to avoid in such situation ;) heh...however that was the only time i could get round to it.
Film i usually use for this purpose is an Ilford Pan F Plus. Wonderful contrast and tonality range. Unfortunately i am not really happy with developing process this time. experiments, experiments... ;)

Portrait of The Artist

I met Qasim once again two days after ‘Liliquoi Blue - God Made Me a Boy’ opening night. We spent couple of hours in town and in gallery working on his portraits. This time i was using my beloved analogue medium format equipment and black and white films.
I am very happy with the result. Cooperation was really good and i got exactly what i was looking for.
The rest of photographs from my selection you can see HERE

The night at CityArts

On 22 of April I was on assignment at CityArts Gallery, documenting the opening night for ‘Liliquoi Blue - God Made Me a Boy’ by Qasim Riza Shaheen . Qasim is an artist based in Manchester, UK.
Project consists of three video adaptations entitled Father I have sinned I, II and III, and an accompanying publication.
It was very interesting experience due to artist‘s deep personal approach to presented body of work.
At the same time very difficult light condition and need of use digital equipment (quite odd for me... well, it had to happen at some stage) made this night quite challenging, technically speaking ;) ...
Here I’d like to thank David Monahan for all support.

Presented images are just a little part of quite significant series.

...let's call it Introduction I come with a new blog. why new? I already started one some time ago but unfortunately it died quite fast or rather it’s in a sort of coma.
this one is different in every aspect. here I decided to show and talk about my professional activity which is sometimes far away from my main interest - black and white analogue photography. it’s time to extend the area of operation ;)
some back posts are ready for publication so see you soon here.
welcome to “the other side of me...”
