Post 7: And then there was Fisheye colour

To shoot in black and white, or to shoot in colour? It may seem like a simple question but depending on which film you choose you can create an entirely photo.

Following on from my last post I thought I’d share some of my other Fisheye photos but this time these are in colour. I’d shot a couple of black and white rolls so thought I’d have a change and give colour film a go. I’m still undecided as to which I prefer. The quality of these images are by no means perfect. Photographing colour seems to highlight the lack of sharpness, and some are off-centered. But then again I wasn’t expecting quality photos considering the camera I was using. Despite this, there’s still something about them which I like. The colours are striking and I think colour photography especially suits summer shots as it captures vibrancy. What do you think?

Profile 2: Street photography with Mike Crippen

The most interesting kinds of photos are often those that look simple. They’re photos with a pure, straight forward vision but which you know, in fact, took time and expertise to capture. These images are ordinary yet most striking at one and the same.

Street photography falls under this calibre. It simply captures public places and snapshots of people within those spaces. These may be every-day locations, perhaps streets you even walk daily, yet these images can show places in a different light in one single photo. In a way, they sort of make you open your eyes and actually see the city around you.

I chatted to Cardiff street photographer Mike Crippen, 37, who met me after a long day at work and kindly took the time to tell me what it’s all about and fill me in on his own experience of working with film.
