Locks Of Love

This is something I have walked past countless times over the years but this is the first time I have noticed that all the padlocks have things written on them 🙂

Performance Arcade Set-up Images And Time-Lapse

This was a while ago now but with moving house and quite a few technical issues with the time-lapse processing have meant that it was only completed today something like four weeks after it happened. The Performance Arcade is part of the Wellington Fringe Festival and involves art installations in and around a whole bunch on large shipping containers.

I had been contacted by Jo, one of the organisers due to an older post( HERE ) I put up and asked if I wanted to come and take some shots around this years event. I had been interested in trying out some more time-lapse photography over a longer period of time so asked when the containers were due to be dropped off.

It turned out that it was scheduled to happen on a Monday and the window of delivery was 7am until 7pm so this worked out perfectly for a long time-lapse.

The day turned out to be really windy and cloudy and due to safety I spend most of the day standing up road cones that had blown over and then as the wind got stronger in the afternoon standing beside my camera to make sure it wouldn’t blow over as well.

I did manage to get a few shot with Rollei as well though when the wind wasn’t too gusty.

The really sucky thing was that I was moving house from Wednesday and didn’t get to go back as planned and shoot a whole heap more time-lapses of people setting up individual containers or members of the public interacting with the installations .

I guess there is always next year… The video is at the bottom of the page

Arcade-5

Marty the truck driver could seriously put a container anywhere…

Arcade-6

And  mean anywhere…

Arcade-8

About an hour after I started shooting it started to lightly rain and the only plastic bag I could find was from someone’s lunch. On the first attempt to put it over the camera a gust of wind blew it away which resulted in a chase followed by me falling over just missing it and then three people chasing it round the containers 🙂 fun times. I got away with only minor injuries…

Photgraphy For Good Not Evil

Recently I submitted a framed photo for the Phil Jacobs Benefit . Phil is one of the few camera repair people left in Wellington and sadly he has become seriously sick which has put a major financial strain on his family.

I have had my Rolleiflex fixed by Phil on numerous occasions and he has always gone out of his way to help me out.

They had a live auction last Friday for some of the prints and the rest have gone on TradeMe (NZ equivalent of Ebay).

Anyway if you want to buy a nice framed, darkroom printed shot of one of the founding fathers of Wellington’s statue overseeing repairs done to a street light then now is your chance, unfortunately I think bidding is restricted to NZ only… Anyway the auction is Here go have a look 🙂

Video

I cant remember but I think this was during the 48 hour film festival where teams have to write, film and edit a film in 48 hours.
