As earlier noted on the blog, I dusted off my F4s, and decided to take it for a spin. Loaded up some Ilford HP5 Plus (400ISO) and off we went. Used the 50mm F/1.4 (version 1).

The end result – cool! Can now completely remember why journalists took to this camera in droves … and very nice bokeh.

In recent meetings and photo shoots with friends, I have been attempting to self-appraise my photography – when do I shoot my best work, when do I not? Perhaps a little presumptuously, what is my signature style, when am I doing a good job? And therefore what should I focus on in 2015?

Having been a “serious” photographer my entire post-teenage life, it has probably been too easy to slip into travel snaps, family record keeping and simple reportage. In the past eighteen months, I have been getting into “street” photography quite seriously (and even published on the subject). Yet, it does seem that a little more thought is required, before pressing that shutter release.

So, how should we think of our “photographic voice“?

Bath is such a great city for photographers – architecturally and street-wise. I have been taking street portraits of the vibrant performers in Bath for some time.
