On 13th April 2013, we took part in the 5th Annual Tweed Run in London.
#PhotoDay is about creating a connected body of work, linking local people, their environment, shared passions and the rest of the online world.
Tweed Run is a group bicycle ride through the centre of London, in which the cyclists are expected to dress in traditional British cycling attire. Any bicycle is acceptable on the Tweed Run, but classic vintage bicycles are encouraged. Some effort to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is always appreciated. (source: Wikipedia april 2013)
We shot two sets on the day:
1. Digital portraits - images were shot with a DLSR camera onto an 'Eye-Fi' card and were instantly processed on the go using the Afteglow iPhone app and uploaded to the blog Anton's Dairy blog. Plus all images appeard on @PhotoAnton Instagram stream live on the day of shooting. You can use #PhotoDayTweed to see all the images
2. Analogue portraits - A second set was shot on Polaroid using the Mamiya RZ67 to create and later scanned to create a set of 'one of a kind' portraits. Using a polaroid camera creates a 'one of a kind' image.
