Today I re-visited Pegwell and started converting the Shipyard of Sunken dreams onto 5x4 direct positive paper. I had difficulties with the exposure and the light meter readings became troublesome. Afterwards, seeing the results and some thought I realized that there is more than a stops difference between 30s and 60s which is where most of these exposures lay. I have also developed a further understanding of the exposure that a white print is an underexposed image and not overexposure.
I have also begun looking at the details at Pegwell Bay, I am keen on developing the project towards a more dynamic series. I don't want to be looking across peg well bay in the landscapes and creating a topographical representation, I want to secure a more arresting reaction from the audiences. By pointing the camera down and looking at the smaller nuances the audience gets to feel involved, feel part of, be part of the landscape and for me the project is as much about me experiences the environment and relaying that within the project.
This photograph is the most inspiring from the day, ignoring the technical issues from poor development and exposure from some of the images, this pushes me to keep making these photographs. Continuing to look down at the scene and experiment with some other subjects.
