Road Trip to Beamish – Summer 2019

This summer we took our old van and our middle aged dogs on a road trip to meet up with my son and his partner – and to meet her folks.

Our van likes to do about 100 miles a day – so a return trip from Worthing to Beamish took us 10 days. The weather was pretty wet, but we weren’t downhearted and the van behaved faultlessly – the van, Hildegarde, has now gone off for her annual make over so while she is away having her welds welded we can look at these pictures and make plans for next year.

All the photos were shot using an Olympus OM30 and fuji colour negative film – all developed at home in the sink!

As well as visiting Beamish open air museum we also visited the wonderful Yorkshire sculpture park.

Another step in trichromic photography

Here are my second set of trichromic photographs.  I noticed in my previous set a lot of colour fringing where the black and white images didn’t quite line up.  This was due to the camera moving when I changed the colour filter, and the fact that I was in zoom lens which zoomed in or out slightly while I was changing the filter. So this time I used a fixed lens and a lovely Olympus OM30 camera – much more solid results. 

You can’t help but notice the people appear in different colours. They really bring out the time effects these images can produce!

Trichromic Photography

These photos were taken using the trichrome technique: each is made up of three black & white images shot through a primary colour filter. Red, Green and Blue.  Then combined to make a colour image.  These are my first attempts – I love the colour fringes when the camera moves between shots, or the ghostly images of people and cars that move between colour changes.
