At the weekend, I attended the wedding of one of the choir, Sue, and her husband Tony. Naturally, I took one of my cameras although with a professional photographer and his assistant getting pictures of the wedding party it seems that I took more photos of friends outside the church than of the happy couple themselves. The pictures with me in them were taken by Ed.
These photos were all taken with my Mamiya C220 TLR using an 80mm f/2.8 lens. This type of camera was a classic wedding photographer’s camera of the 1960s, until 35mm SLRs came into vogue in the 1970s. These pictures were all shot on FP4+ and developed in ID-11. Ed visited my darkroom yesterday to make some prints, which we toned in selenium to give the warm brown/purple hue. The pictures on this website are scanned from the negatives, not the prints, and the selenium effect was faked. Sorry! 🙁
While we’re on the subject of Sue & Tony’s wedding, this seems a good opportunity to plug the video that the choir made to commemorate the occasion!
