Spotlight on Kevin Meredith aka Lomokev! -
Kevin is more than just a professional photographer, blogger, writer of books, flickr celebrity and Brompton cyclist. He is LOMOKEV for Christ sake!
It goes without saying that we asked him to beta test dubble and he was obviously one of the first on the scene with a (proper) review on…
Animated gifs? I hear they are all the rage these days. I did nothing to align these images. I took them at the same time, they are a couple. I first noticed they aligned really when I was flicking through files on my computer.
Check out the original images on my Fragmented Portraits Tumblr of Emma and David.
Reflection in Brighton Beach Tunnel by Kevin Meredith
Reflection in a really stinky puddle in a tunnel that connects Brighton beach with Queen Street. I lied down for this and the ground really smelt of wee. This was taken with the new Samsung Galaxy NX, usually all my digital pictures are processed with Lightroom and VSCO film. I was really happy with this image out of the camera so I left it how it was. I hardly ever leave images as they are from digital.
This was taken while I was teaching on of my photography workshops. One of the tasks on the workshop is to shot a list of 66 things on 2 rolls of film over 4 hours. I always take part as well so people taking part can see what I can do with 72 exposures. This one was for “reflection” although I could’ve used “silhouette” to, some of the things on the list are literal and others are open to interpretation. The next workshop is in February 2014 in Brighton. Although the first days exercise is taken on film I sneaked in this cheeky digital shot as I am testing out a new camera.
Taken and posted with the Samsung galaxy NX provided samsung.
Great men are forged in fire. It is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame, whatever the cost. — I had a bit of a nerdgasm when I heard this line in the 50th anniversary episode of Dr Who last night. As far as I am concerned this is up there with the great SiFi lines like Rutger Hauer’s “Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion” speech from Blade Runner.
