Mamiya 7ii, Mamiya 43mm f/4.5L, Fuji Neopan Acros with a 10 stop ND filter. Probably 2 minutes worth. [XTOL 1:2 13 minutes]

An indulgence, but what are holidays for? We don’t have streams on the South Downs. I like doing long exposures with film – it is testing faith in measurement.

Pre-exposure to loosen the contrast in the shadows on Zone 1. Geek-tastic – this means you give it two exposures, one much much less that the other, which changes the exposure in the shadows a lot but kind of leaves the highlights alone. It seems to have done what I wanted.

Yes, sorry, the tree thing maybe getting out of hand. I am considering changing my Flickr handle to Ent-hunter. But it is such a pleasant photographic experience out there in the hills beyond Brighton, and it’s so crowded in town.

I’m planning a swing back to colour in the autumn. Maybe back to my industrial roots.
