"Butchers" Ilford XP2 400 35mm and a new promotional offer

"Butchers" Canon FTb Scanned Print

Shot in the doorway of a local Butcher shop in Ovar, Portugal. I would have liked a better composition but It was shot in a hurry, The image could be improved with better composition and it could also do with being a half an F stop wider to let just a little more light in. Shot using a Canon FTb with a 50mm 1.4 lens.

The online store has some new work for sale, as well as 'The Heart of the Matter' and 'Snout' are now for sale in both 7x5 and 12x8.

The new website is currently on hold due to some browser display issues we are trying our best to fix, while you wait here's a new promotional code:

For one week only from the 30th of July (today) until the 6th of August a massive 40% off of all final orders! Simply type in the provided code at the checkout and the 40% will be deducted from your total.

Code: 68GBND 


Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds LP has been on none stop, a great album with some amazing songs that should be played more often on the radio. That's it for now, If you don't already then you can follow the studio on Twitter: @gfrogstudio and on Facebook.

Taken with a Canon 500D using a Canon 50mm 1.4 lens. All settings were sorted in the camera before the shot, no post processing was done afterwards except to resize the image from 49.49 x 33 inches to 24.745 x 16.5 inches for the initial blog post.
