Welp, I meant to have this post up a week and a half ago. If only “real life” never got in the way…

Continuing on from previous posts of photos from the Peterborough folk festival, here we’ve got Nick Ferrio and His Feelings, Fish and Bird, and Tanika Charles and the Wonderfuls.

One more post of Folk Festival photos to come, with Tin Vespers and Donné Roberts.

Also photographed a show at the Spill last Monday, with Watershed Hour, Stuck on Planet Earth, and KAYO and The Blackeyes, which will find its way here eventually.

Nick Ferrio and His Feelings: Arista Premium at EI 800. Fish and Bird: Kentmere 400 at EI 800. Tanika Charles and the Wonderfuls: Kentmere 400 at EI 1600. Developed in ID-11. Minolta Maxxum 7000i, Maxxum 35-105mm f/3.5 and 50mm f/1.7.

Continuing my post from yesterday, here are some more photos from the Peterborough Folk Festival. I’ll be working through the main-stage line-up in order, so first off are the photos of Melissa Payne and Jos. Fortin.

Melissa and Jos. are the recipients of the Peterborough Folk Festival’s 2011 and 2012 Emerging Artist Award, respectively, so needless to say the main-stage event got started with some serious home-grown talent.

Sadly, as a newbie photographer I’m bound to make all sorts of mistakes when I’m processing film, and I managed to scratch up the roll that had these shots something awful. You live and learn, this is what survived.

Hosting the main stage, like last year, was the always amazing old-timey Sheesham and Lotus and Son. Like Sheesham says, “That old time music is better than it sounds.” Two snaps of them, from right after Jos. Fortin’s set:

Still working through processing and scanning the rest of the photos. Tomorrow I’ll have Nick Ferrio and His Feelings and Fish and Bird, and possibly Tanika Charles and the Wonderfuls, depending on how ambitious I am.

After waiting patiently as I could, finally all my orders have come in and I’m able to get some sort of 35mm photography workflow set up in my apartment. I’ve got a 2-reel spiral tank, some ID-11, a few different types of film and an Epson V500 scanner.

Of course the first thing I did when the film came in was fire off a test roll and develop it as quickly as I could. The film got a little mangled in my ham-fisted attempt to load the reel, which did a number of a bunch of the exposures, and I didn’t really put any thought into what I was taking.

Also my first time shooting on Arista Premium 400. I really like the look of it, and am looking forward to giving it a whirl when I’m shooting a bit more seriously.
