This is just a quick post to share one of the speed art clips I recently put together. It also includes a little snippet of my walk up to Warden Point which was incredibly muddy. If anyone decides to visit I strongly recommend you take your wellies but also stay vigilant. It's so easy to get caught off guard by the tide because of they way it comes in. Even though I had planned around the tide times I made it back just in time. If I had left it any longer before heading back I would have found myself wading through water. Also, be mindful of standing close to the cliff, it's only mud and you just don't know when it might come down. I'm surprised there aren't more warnings around, but I guess that's where common sense should kick in.
You can find more speed art clips for this project on my YouTube channel. The project brief was around landscapes in the broadest sense. I came up with a concept of human impact and how as a species we have influenced and changed the landscape. I never thought I'd be asking to visit a landfill site, but thats what I did. Unfortunately it's something that the company who manages my nearest landfill don't allow. Which was a real shame as this would have really brought something to my final set of images. The use of symmetry in some of the images is the direct influence of work by Edgar Martins. The full set can be found in my Flickr album: https://www.flickr.com/photos/87206424@N04/albums/72157662342087110
Below is one of the shots I wish I could have used but the focus was off so I didn't include it in my final set. I also had problems with the Rolliecord which needs to be serviced as the shutter has started to stick! Thankfully I've found someone who has a great reputation for servicing these cameras. I used Kodak Portra 160 medium format film and the Fuji Hunt C41 processing kit to self develop the film.
