About the Book
The images were shot on a vintage Pentax K1000 camera using Kodak Infrared EIR film. The distinctive colours and grain are characteristic of the film. The motion blur was captured in-camera by using slow shutter speeds (ranging between 1/15th and 1/2 second) and camera panning. A 28mm wide angle lens further adds to the distortion. Digital manipulation was limited to minor levels correction, removing dust and image sharpening post scanning.
I should probably disclose that I'm a life-long cyclist.
