Minus 16 in Tallinn

Image

Just back from an amazing week teaching students in Tallinn, Estonia. Mainly studio sessions, and a very full week of teaching, so I did not get a huge amount of time to be outside getting pictures for myself, especially since the days were very short.

So, just around 30 in total. A few pictures with the Horizont, but it jammed in the extreme cold because the film got too stiff and wouldn’t bend backwards around the spool, but the Xpan carried on working.

Also experienced for the first time the sensation of my finger freezing to the lens!

So, next years Christmas cards are all sorted with this former Soviet building (shot above) constructed as part of the Moscow Olympics, now crumbling.

Just one more, I wanted to thank all the people who were involved in my trip. The college canteen produced the most beautiful college food I have ever had thanks to the manager and chef. Grabbed the shot below at the end of lunch.

I like to work with the sense of space and emptiness panoramic images give. It can be harder with other formats.

I am a photographer and photography teacher working in the editorial field and fine art area. I have a range of specialisms including animal and environmental photography, landscape and documentary, and portraiture. I teach in all these areas as well as in both analogue (film) and digital media including darkroom and Photoshop post production. I teach both in colleges and community based projects, but can also offer one-to-one teaching. I wrote the IOS, Android and Amazon Fire app to help calculate fractions of a stop when darkroom printing, follow tab to details. Use the Contact page of my main website to get in touch.
