Kat shot by Keith Moss on Ilford PanF Plus 50 ASA film.
My quest to shoot film continues, I am slipping back and putting my feet under the table like I have never been away.
Over the last two weeks I have been working with two of the models from the Ultimate Doll competition, the winner Kristi and one of the favourites Kat. Both are very different in their look as I’m sure you will agree when you see the images. The one thing they do have in common however, is beautiful skin which is essential when shooting film as you can’t retouch bad skin when you are printing in the darkroom.
From the 3rd – 6th of March Keith Moss will be on the Ilford stand giving 16 live inspirational shows on the benefits of using Film and how easy you can shoot both Digital and Film alongside each other.
Make sure you get yourself to the Ilford stand to see the Analogue genius in action.

Whether you shoot digitally or feed your soul by shooting film, getting it right in the camera is so important.
In my experience nowadays so many photographers don’t get it right in the camera and then spend precious time, which they don’t get paid for, in Photoshop or some such software program.
“When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes and dresses. But when you photograph people in Black and White, you photograph their souls!” Ted Grant known as ‘The Father of Canadian Photojournalist’
In this blog I’m going to talk about my love of analogue photography, nothing digital, no computers needed!!
But first I’ll tell you about the image above… yes believe it or not it was shot using black and white film! It’s one of my earliest images. I used a red filter which made the red of the KitKat bar lighter in colour and then an artist friend of mine hand painted in the red on my finished print.. Brilliant!
In this blog post I am wanting to give you a quick introduction to my newest camera, the beautifully small but perfectly formed Rollei 35 S.
Heinz Waaske is the man behind the Rollei 35, in the 1960’s Waaske started to create a prototype. In 1965 Waaske started to work for Rollei, the managing director Dr Peesel got a glimpse of Waaske’s prototype and was filled with excitement by the little camera. Peesel decided the camera should be developed further and be ready for the 1966 Photokina event.

Looking at the image above would you believe that it has had no form of retouching?
I created this image using Ilford PanF 50 film with my Bronica, no retouching has taken place on this image. I made sure all aspects were perfect before I captured the image, so I knew that when I developed the negative I would be greeted with a perfect image.
At Focus on Imaging Team Moss put a competition on for one lucky individual to win an Olympus Trip. All you had to do was sign up to the Keith Moss newsletter. We had an unbelievable response with over 700 entries.

I want to talk about Photoshop or no Photoshop.
Most people now understand that every image they see in magazines has been heavily retouched and in reality doesn’t represent what real people look like and I think its fare to say are fed up of it and have lost a little faith in advertising.
