I went for a quick a walk around the Central Market precinct this morning after breakfast. It was overcast, muggy and the light was soft. I had a coffee at The Marquis amongst the lawyers, and glanced through the AFR for possible material to bounce off for my public opinion blog.
I put some medium format film into Photoco to be developed, and then started exploring the central market area itself.
Would this picture work as a large format shoot I wondered? I was unsure. I’ll keep coming back to it to have a look.
The market is very dark without the artificial lights, and the neon lights in the various stalls makes the light that falls on the produce contrasty and really ugly. I was looking for an area with vegetables and natural light. I had in mind some sort of still life.
