MONOCHROME MANIA - PART 3 #4

Lyn

Yet another shot taken in a studio set up at the clubroom of my first Camera Club. Seeing these portraits from all those years past makes me think it might be worth trying again some time if the opportunity arises. I used to have an old set of studio lights but despatched them to the tip several years ago.

(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions.  This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)

Belly lice, Brian.

But...[nudge, wink]...are you planning to show the other set, the one where the beautiful Lyn...eerrr...slips into something more comfy?





[grin]
Brian Walbey: She didn't slip into or out of something more comfortable Ray, we were a very upstanding group of photographers, so to speak smile

Good portrait Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment vintage.
The 'Tip' .. he he , not heard those words for years.
Nice candid, it's a period pice alright looking at those clothes.
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Rob, I do remember a judge saying he felt the necklace was a bit heavy and he is probably right.

I agree with Rob: it's funny how times change
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, this young lady must be approaching her middle years by now I suppose.

She does have lovely eyes smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks zed, not just her eyes but I like the sweep of her hair as well.
Another of the women from your past Briansmile
Brian Walbey: YOU might say that Bill, I refrain to comment :-D
Like you brian...all my lights along with all the darkroom processing gear..including the enlarger went to the skip just this year...this was to make room in the loft so that insulators could lay the fibreglass down. Also 100s and 100s of negs..but they were of folk..not my personal ones. It hurt at the time..but what can one do with it all!!!
Brian Walbey: We've just had our loft done Ron, oh the stuff we had hoarded away. I've even advertised my darkroom kit for FREE and still got no takers. I hate to throw good condition stuff away but I guess that is what will happen, except for the dishes, maureen will use them as seed trays. Thanks for your comment.
Beautiful portrait Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Richard.
Beautiful Picture, pity Women won't let me get that close. Looking at the freckles was she Ginger Haired by any chance?
Brian Walbey: I seem to think she was ginger haired Martin, I believe I have got some slides of her as well, that will tell me. Thanks for your comment.

This time I completely see this picture is from back in the day. her hairstyle, pose, and there is something about her too... excellent portrait Brian, way to fill up the entire frame.

I think if its something that you like to do, why not start doing it again? Given you have the time of course smile I cannot imagine myself not busting out my camera when I'm say, 70 or 80. Times will be different, the environment is so different, the people too... you have the rare occassions of comparing pictures from different decades.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mia, as I said I have got rid of my lighting equipment now and the camera club I now belong to doesn't do studio sessions so I will have to rest on my laurels as they say.
I know Brian..thats where my dishes went too. Nobody wants the darkroom stuff today...makes me wonder what happens to the companies that produced the equipment. So..there you go Brian,,be brave..and into the skip. I feel a bit better now..knowing you've had to do the same... Cheers mate..Ron.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, I just hate throwing good stuff away, my enlarger is in really good condition, mind you they do recycle electrical goods at our local amenity place. Patterson are still in business by the way and do still produce stuff for darkrooms but I don't know about any of the others.
go for it Brian why not if you could do this all those years ago whats to stop you nowsmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim, the opportunity for doing this doesn't crop up now, that might change when my granddaughter grows up a bit though, she's gorgeous, then I would say that wouldn't Ismile))
