Before I am going to show you the rest of the pictures I took last week in the UK, there are a few pictures I took on the 2nd of April – the International Pillow Fight Day 2011 – that I wanted to put online first.
I really struggled with exposing, as the light changed all the time (sunny/cloudy), I knew I only had about 5 minutes to catch the whole thing, plus I also somehow messed up when developing the film afterwards – it came out okay, but then I noticed a slightly brown tint of the negatives and on one or two strange patterns that must have turned up during development (I guess). So if anyone has an idea where that came from, let me know!
Last preparations before the fight.
Lineup on both sides.
Let the fighting begin!
Clash of the oppsing sides.
The first pillow explodes.
Leaving the battle zone. This one makes me laugh every time I look at it!
Heavy fighting going on.
Another pillow gone.
I wasn’t the only photographer there, as you can imagine.
This one is my favourite.
See the stuff that looks like light streaks at the bottom of this one? I think it must have something to do with developing, but not sure… It’s on several other frames as well, but best visible in this one.
Celebrating the end of the fight.
Starting to clean up.
