This picture is part of my first major Uni photography project, about a Jewish Community Centre that I volunteer at twice a week.


My thermometer played up for some reason and therefore gave me some really underdeveloped negs to print up on one roll of HP5.


This was taken with a Pentax MZ5N with a new 50mm f1.4 lens, which I bought especially for the project, as I wanted to work only with natural light = which in turn has given me some frustrating negs to try and print, even when they have been developed correctly.


Once I got the correct overall exposure with grade 3, I burnt in for half the time the front counter
area with a grade 1 filter. Im sure a judge would pick up the small white highlights throughout the print but I was quite happy with them at printing... but now I think they may be too bright? Tomorrow? Well, I'll see...


Ilford bits have been used throughout, with the film developed in Ilford Ilfotec LC29 and the paper being RC MG Pearl.


The large borders are about 1 throughout the series, which will soon be exhibited in the local library and made into a book for my final presentation.

Really good image- I've been waiting to see this after reading some discussion about the inclusion of the strip lights, and mysterious talk about 'the chips'. All is revealed.
The strip lights don't bother me at all- they just help tell the story of wht kind of place it is. The highlight on the chips is no more or less eye-catching than the window light. In fact, I really like the rendering of the reflections on all those metal surfaces.
