The cold not quite so bad this week, functioning a little better. Took a full part in the Falmouth web presentation by Simon Roberts. Excellent presentation. Great photography and lots of background. His technique of shooting a General Election from a tripod mounted large format camera on a motor-home seems surreal. I asked how many images he exposed in a typical day, the anser was 20-30.

Interesting that once he had an assistant on an arduous trip through Russia he stayed with the same formula.

Otherwise the week had a bit of commercial work, with that cold still hanging around. Did get to test my new-old 5 x 4 camera though the negatives weren’t that wonderful, it does work.
