221.157 – Session #2.2 Notes

10th March, 2022

Show and tell


Ben showed his work.

Spends lots of time on the South coast of Wellington.

Shoots at night.

Very long duration photography.

Talk of reciprocity failure for film emulsions – hey, I remember that!


Shoots landscapes, mainly on the Central Plateau

Enjoys shooting before/after storms.

Balance between tramping/climbing and photography.

I was reminded of this: “Anything more than 500 yards from the car just isn’t photogenic.” – Edward Weston

Group Work

Got set up with 4 other people.

As always: friendly, clever, young people!

I shared a Google doco with my team.

We need to look at 2 photos each.

Probably connect with Instagram or something?
