Here’s a couple of night shots I experimented with last week. I started using this expired box of Kodak Tri-X Pan that has given me some great results. My exposure and processing times shifted a bit in the switch from Ilford HP5+. These were shot on a Toyo field camera at f/16 @ 3-4 minutes and developed in xtol (1:1) for 8:30- in case other photographers were interested.

4x5 print I took from my balcony in Halifax. Little pigeon flew in the middle of the frame! kinda like it though. There’s also a passenger in the truck giving me the stink eye I saw when i scanned the negative and zoomed in haha.  If i remember correctly, I shot it at 1/8s @ f/45 with ilford hp5, shot/processed for 200asa. the print is 28x35”.

"One year and three-hundred sixty-four days": This is the beginning of an ongoing series of couples. The title refers to the length of the relationship. I’m interested in the way two people connect; the way their eyes meet, the way their postures and other physical similarities start to imitate one another. The person not being photographed was sitting next to the camera lens and I was off hidden behind the lighting fixture, to make the two feel as relaxed as possible. Like I said, it’s just the beginning of something I’m interested in making a long term project. That said, I would love to photograph and include you and your partner in this series! (Shot with a 4x5 toyo field camera and Ilford Harry Potter 5.)

Halifax. Someone sells bikes near my place by strapping them to a phone pole with a wet piece of paper for their contact information. I guess if i want it I’ll just yell in the streets until they come a runnin. Anyways, I have a lot of new paper cut out work to show everyone next week! Follow me on twitter @DavidReevesArt for more frequent updates and some random/on purpose photos. Cheers.

"Moths"- This is a little series I did for a class. The nature of project dealt with the relationship between what is private and public. While walking the streets of Halifax I had noticed myself looking into windows as I passed them, getting these small glimpses of people’s private life. The thought occurred during the moment and not before- there was no premeditation that I wanted to be a weirdo looking into someone’s private residence. But I think it’s interesting that we are unable to help it, like moths to flame. The “flame” is being caught, I suppose. As for the shots being premeditated, I simply walked with my camera/tripod until I saw something that clicked in my brain- then photographed it and moved on. I only took 2-3 of one frame then kept walking… mostly because it was like 0 degrees (F) outside and windy as a mauf. I think my fingers almost fell off. Your rights as a photographer vary depending on your location. In Nova Scotia, I learned, one is allowed to photograph whatever they wish, so long as they (the photographer) are on a public space. These photos were all taken from the sidewalk.

thief! again! I took the paper figure out on my patio today and tried incorporating a real background. halifax being one of the windiest places I’ve ever been in didn’t make it very easy. i had to tape the whole length of a metal ruler against the back of piece and reinforce it to the wall to get it to stay still enough for the shot.
