Print Store

Tonight I have launched my new print store, I have prints – photographs & illustrations available to buy. All the prints would make great gifts and I’ll be adding more in the coming few weeks. Welcome to my store!

My 11 Day Break.

I had 11 days off over Easter….bliss!  I managed to get a lot of eating, photographing, bouncing (on the trampoline) and sunbathing in. I shot exclusively on my Diana – 4 rolls of film. Unfortunately I found out it’s even harder  than ever now to get 120 film in camera shops. A couple of years ago most camera stores could usually find a couple of dusty rolls hidden in the back for you. (Once they’d looked up what you actually meant by ‘120 roll film’ of course) Now? nothing at all! After a long hunt, I managed to obtain some  film and here are some of my favourite results from the Easter holidays.

Book Shop Shoot

I stumbled across a book shop in Nottingham in my first year called Geoff Blore’s Bookshop, ran by father & son. Ever since I’ve wanted to go back and photograph it – at last I have! The shop is packed floor to ceiling with second hand books – some modern, some beautifully old with darkened pages and peeling covers. There is no real way I can describe this treasure trove of a shop, so I’ll stop trying and let the photo’s do the talking. Here is a small gallery of test shots taken on my D80. There is a real lack of light in the shop, apart from the orange glow of the tungsten bulbs, so these photos are by no means perfect or finished. I also shot two 120 films – on a Yashica and a Diana F+, I should get these films back in a few days. If I like the results I will be going back to perhaps re-shoot and make a real series from the shop.

Diana Poster By Clare Richards (aka – me)

Due to my lovely friend Rachel Sammon and I loving our little Diana F+ cameras so much I created this poster for her birthday. I made the orignal drawing by hand in biro, scanned it to my computer, duplicated it in Photoshop and filled it with colour – et voila!Photography by Clare

New Year – New Camera- New Blogging

Happy New Year! My photography plans for Christmas didn’t go too well, I ended up bed ridden with flu for the whole week. I did manage to shoot a film of 120 film on my gorgeous new camera that Santa gave me, the Diana F+. I have sent the film off to be processed with Fujifilm, I haven’t used them before, so hopefully they have a good service. 

So a new year, obviously means, new resolutions and amongst a countless list of others, I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog  once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.             Thanks, Clare 🙂
