Chris O'Dell Photographs

A Corner of my Garden

A Corner of my Garden 2016

This style of photograph was popular fifty years ago.  It concentrates on texture, form and light.  I have been trying to rediscover the reason for my love of photography, which seems to have declined during the advent of digital imaging.  To this end I have recently recovered my old film cameras, and purchased some black and white film and processing chemicals.  The combination of black and white film negative and digital printing is pefect, combining the special look that fim has with the ease and image control provided by digital scanning and printing.  I took this picture in my garden a few days ago (May 2016).  Perhaps this type of photography is due for a revival.

Camera:  Bronica ETRS,  lens Zenzagon 50mm f/2.8,  film stock Ilford HP5 Plus, developed in Fotospeed FT!0.
