London Street Photography Festival Entry? And A Shot Of Me.

I have been thinking of entering this competition for a little while now and there is only a week and a half to go before entries close… Any images people liked or were memorable? Cant be a posed shot which is most of what I do anyway and can be a single image or a set of images…

Let me know


Here’s the link to the competition:

Here’s a shot that Andrew aka Saturday Harrasser took of me when we were out shooting after the rugby 7’s earlier in the year. Shot with a Nikon D700 and processed using Silver Effects Pro to look like Ilford Delta 3200 ISO Film (which was what I was shooting that night). There’s not many shots of me I actually like but this is definitely one of them and I have to say that the film grain is pretty damn close to what Delta 3200 actually looks like… Good work Andrew we should got out shooting again some time…

  3. Andrew, could enter that frame for the comp 😉 Nice shot of u but don’t think it has the essence of what they’re after… Half a dozen street sleeper shots should do it…

    • Somehow I knew you would say sleepers 🙂

    Ah…. cunning vision and his street sleepers fetish… :-). Is it a jealousy thing perhaps? Is it what he would like to do if he wasnt such an upstanding member of the comunity? …Me thinks so. 😀

    Thawnks for the heads up simon. Yeah, tie’ing in this image of you to a previous post of yours about dumbing down technology… Nikon d700, nikon capture nx2, photoshop cs5, Nik silver effex pro…… And nearly, just nearly, with all this technology and time spent. The image almost matches that from a roll of film thats relatively cheap and been around for eons… 😀

    • Cheers… Digital converted to black and white with added film grain obviously suits me 🙂
