La playa, Barceloneta.
Ciutat Vella, Barcelona.
La Boqueria, Barcelona. Leica M7 with 50mm summilux, HP5+ rated at ISO 3200, and processed in DD-X 1+4.
Police car, tourists and illegal street trading, Moll de Bosch i Alsina, Barcelona.
Fast food kiosk, Moll d’ Espanya, Barcelona.
More yachts and illegal street traders. Moll d’ Espanya, Barcelona. All three images this week were shot late at night on HP5+ rated at ISO 3200. It is very difficult to get clean images, as the film has little exposure latitude when pushed this far and these night scenes contain a lot of contrast.
More HP5+ shot at ISO 3200 on Las Ramblas, Barcelona.
Carrer dels Comtes, Barcelona.
Carrer de la Pietat, Barcelona.
Four random colour scenes of everyday life in Barcelona. Colour shots taken in the market are really painful to edit, as the extremely mixed lighting makes getting anything vaguely approaching acceptable colour painful. I would love to find a practical, efficient strategy to adjust colour for indoor “street” shots that is more effective than the Monte-Carlo method that I currently use…
Universidad de Barcelona, Carrer del Montalegre. Kodak Portra 400 processed in a Tetenal kit and converted to black and white.
Carrer dels Angels, Barcelona – this doorway was one of the subjects used in the very different “bubbles” images.
The first of a series of film based street photographs, shot in Barcelona.
Five colour street images, taken in Barcelona and shot on Kodak Portra and Ektar. My favourite is probably the “Refugees Welcome” image, as this represents two of the main issues for the city at present.
Five more black and white images, taken in and around the touristic centre of Barcelona. These were all shot with the Ricoh GR II and converted from RAW to black and white in Capture One.
Five images, loosely around the theme of movement in Barcelona, and differing opportunities. The tiles with the aircraft form part of the installation “El món neix en cada besada” (The world is born in every kiss) by the excellent conceptual photographer Joan Fontcuberta. The installation is a fotomosaic showing a kiss, made from local residents’ photographs. Here is another shot, showing a small section of the images more clearly: The full mosaic only really makes sense in colour – I will post an image of it when I catch up with the colour film processing here.
