Tim Blowfield's 'Traces'



Tim Blowfield's 'Traces' was a great opportunity to explore some interesting lighting techniques.
This dance piece has some incredible tonality and creates tension to challenge the audience.

This made me think of multiple images that seemed to flow in a stop frame animated style.
Rauri Cormack , Tim's lighting genius came up with a strobe based solution that really lent
itself to the project (well I thought so )

My first post!


This is my first blog! Here is an image I made using a homemade camera. I had an old Hasselblad 40mm wide angle lens so I stuck it onto a Zero pinhole camera body. I wanted to see what happened right at the edge of the wide angle lens. All those aberrations lens designers try to eliminate. This image for marks a great day. The first day of really thick snow in London for years where everyone was forced to stay at home, play with their friends and family and smile again like they did a long time ago.
