Little America

This project was my second project for the A-level and was the exam piece. The exam was to do with the shooting and printing from a choice of five topics. From the five given I chose possessions. This was a little more nerve racking as I had to approach people I did not know to shoot the images. There was a couple (Rod and Kerry) who lived down the road from me and they owned a 1957 Pontiac. This is one big, blue and chrome American classic that I knew would look fantastic in black and white. The other car chosen was a pink Cadillac owned by guy also called Ray from a local town. I was told about him a chose to approach him for a shoot. Again, another great car to shoot. I was very pleased with all their responses to my approach to photograph them, and they seemed to enjoy the experience too, although it is a very nerve racking experience approaching strangers to take photographs of them! Once again all shot on the Canon EOS 5, this time with Ilford FP4 (ISO 125) as I was outdoors and could utilise a slower film. Only minor cropping to remove the negative edges and tweaking of the levels to improve contrast was done to the images.
