As part of my photography class we have done a couple of shoots on location recently.
The first was out and about in Cambridge in the evening. This gave me a chance to try out night shots with traditional film photography. This was a new experience for me, and it’s really difficult to know what the effects are going to be, since you don’t have a screen to check the results like you do with digital! The best way to try and get something reasonable is to bracket the shots, that is take a metered shot and then take additional shots that are a stop over exposed and a stop underexposed. In the future I will also have a better idea of how the camera behaves once I have seen the processed results.
While we were out and about we took some interesting shots of the Cambridge Chop House, since it has lots of detail illuminated inside, we also took some shots of the front of King’s College and the some from Trinity Hall Bridge.
The second shoot we did was at Mill House in Whittlesford, it was a really nice location with a woodland area behind the house. The weather wasn’t great as the light was really flat, however I think I still managed to take some interesting shots. I think my favourite was the one of the swing next to the water.
