Using a 1950s Rolleiflex T medium format camera to shoot stills for a film about the Blasket Islands in South West Ireland.

Shooting medium format in Ireland

17:06 26 November in Filmmaking, Museums & Exhibitions, Photography

Very excited to be shooting film for the first time in a decade, and on a spectacularly beautiful day in South West Ireland. We’re shooting stills and re-enactment scenes for a film about the Blasket Islands for Ireland’s Office of Public Works. In order to produce images that have a strong period feel we’re using 6 x 6 medium format film and a vintage Rolleiflex camera. You can see the results here.

Two planes heading West, which is the direction chosen by the inhabitants when they abandoned the islands in 1953.
