Stills V3

Hi Guys, here’s a shot I took this weekend with my converted 110A on Fuji F-3000B instant film. Apologies for my absence, I have been very busy with wedding season and preparing for two months overseas, and I haven’t been fulfilling my Stills obligations! As well as that, I’m never sure if I should post my work images here, which are a lot more commercial, and honestly, probably better than my polaroid snapshots.

Best regards, and thanks to Robert for the wakeup!




  1. Glad to know that business is keeping you busy – better than the other way round! Considering that many photographers are in the commercial world in one way or another, a photo is a photo!

    I keep one wondering with this one what colour the tiles are or whether they are black – not important but a natural consequence of seeing shoes on them. I like the graphic appearance both of the chequered look and the b/w and continue to be intrigued by the possible story behind the shoes.

  2. Antony, I don’t have any objection to you posting work images or polaroid snapshots – just post something! I also suspect the the images are different rather than beter. Your work image shows you meeting the clients expectations – as it should – but your ‘snapshot’ shows us somehting you noticed and were, at least momentarily, engaged by. Polaroid is a special medium of it’s own (see Andre Kertesz’s Polaroids book).

    What’s intriguing me about this one is that the use of black and white has made it into a completely graphic shot that is almost completely disconnected from the fact of the shoes in their place. What are they there for? I don’t know:)

  3. I’m not to sure if I’d rather see this square on and have the perspective give us depth of if the angle adds a dynamic edge.
    That is a great camera and a blast to use.
    The photos in Andre’s book are from an SX70, have you seen them Antony? I have 9 books of Andre’s pictures, i think I am a fan.

  4. I recently noticed I’d missed this.
    I am a bit fixated on things being square, I think its the engineer bit of me, but admire the Winogrand approach to horizontals. The framing of the shoes by the tiles draws the eye to them.

    I had to look up the Fuji film, I haven’t used polaroid for years, a traditional approach to immediacy.
