A Stone’s Throw | Tintype styled landscape and still-life photography.

This photography project uses a coloured tintype visual style and explores local roads and fields. All of the images were shot within two miles of my former home in North Yorkshire.

Close to Home

Several of the images include locations that, though very close to home, I’d never visited before even though I’d lived in that area for over 35 years.

The phrase ‘a stone’s throw‘ refers to the short distances involved.

Tintype Process

The tintype photo process, also known as a melainotype or ferrotype, dates back to the Victorian era, being at its most popular during the 1860s and 1870s.

The original Victorian process used several highly toxic ingredients including potassium cyanide as a fixer. These images were, however, taken using an iPhone and the Hipstamatic photography app.

More details about the Tintype photo process can be found HERE

As usual with the start of a new year it means that the websites get some extra attention and have an early spring clean. I’ve already been through the main photography blog and tidied up various aspects of the site. Old links have been removed and a few design issues have been corrected. As i stated on the blog not long ago, this year i do intend to blog more after noting the rather low number of posts for 2012.

The portfolio section of this website is also in line for a few tweaks with the Speedway gallery to receive more work during the next few weeks. Last year i updated the Territorial Army gallery to include new images and produce a definitive final version of the project. It is my intention to do exactly the same for the Speedway project to complete that gallery on the website and bring the final tally of images to over forty. Other galleries will also see new work added included the recently added Scotland project that will continue this year. The gallery, which is very much a work-in-progress, will have new images added to it throughout 2013.

The final site to get updates will be the Photography Print Shop where a new sales format is to be introduced after parting with the FOTOMOTO e-commerce engine. All sales are now handled by me personally with an excellent series of professional print artwork options being made available. The winter will see me set up a simple pricing structure before adding a wider range of print finishes later in the year.

SlideShowPro Progress

Editing the photo galleries in SlideShowPro

January saw the completion of the SlideShowPro gallery conversion process. All of the galleries are now powered using the excellent application’s media player and offer full screen viewing. You can view my review of SlideShowPro Director here.

Several of the galleries remain on the website but are not listed in the portfolio area. These second layer galleries can be accessed typing the word ‘portfolio’ into the website search box. This seemed to be a better solution than totally deleting the work from the site.

The galleries in line for further development are the portrait, single images and Norfolk project sections. More work will be added to these slideshows over the coming weeks.

The website has been getting some great feedback with clients and visitors impressed by the design and ease of use. One web designer even commented that ‘this is the way all photographers should have their website’.

The work continues! Refinements to text, layout and navigation are just some of the improvements made over the last few weeks, with more changes to come this month.

Finally, don’t forget to check out the new Tumblr blog 50mm for daily photo posts. All sorts of images, news and photography miscellanea posted there.
