    Uni Assignment

    I've been given an assignment at uni in which I've got to find a professional photographer who uses traditional methods, specifically black + white and get a raport going as to why they shoot B+W negative images over colour/digital. Then emulate their work. I think this site would be a good place to look seeing as there are plenty of working professionals here. Ideally it'd be somebody in Britain, or even better Wales who is in the vein of documentary or landscape photography. Can anybody give me any ideas? Cheers.

    'emulating their work'? Why would you want to emulate the work of someone else?

    Did you see this? It's not someone you can likely get to meet where you are, but this guy does explain rather fully why he's shooting film.

    Well not exactly emulate, but do something similar/your own take on it. That link won't work.

    Hi from old South Wales to New South Wales. I haven't done alot of research yet. Just looking through issues of B+W magazine and amateur photographer for somebody I like in the articles. I'll have a good route through the bookshelf in college this week. Techically I haven't been taught anything I don't already know yet, apart from learning to use the D-word. They're still covering the basics to get us all up to a similar level. I've learned alot from the historical and contextual side of it though and have a much greater knowlege and appreciation of photographers that have shaped the course of the medium now. I've also learned a fair bit in the studio as far as basic lighting set ups are concerned. We haven't got into the full swing of things yet.
