Had a look at this a couple of times. First with @slayaaaa and then with @DubbedNavigator. Good meeting you both guys!

It’s barely worth reporting, but I was practicing with phone photos in dark places and I like the results. These are all taken on a phone camera - Huawei P10. ISO 50, f2.2 and exposure ranging from 1/15 second to 15 second. Just a rotate and crop, with no PP.


History

According to Kelly’s directory at the record office this this is listed as Frederick Donisthorpe, dyer and trimmer (Pingle Works) from 1870 until 1963, (It became Donsithorpe Hamilton and Co somewhere in the middle). In 1966 it was listed as JW Loweth and sons, Worsted spinner. By 1972 it seems it was L E Sansom Ltd, Cash and Carry, selling food and assorted goods. Their bank foreclosed on LE Sansom in 2012 due to a massive drop in profits, with the company finally dissolving in 2014.

This one of the scales - the only light was coming down the stairs, we could barely see the scales. This is a 15 second exposure with no light painting.

To say they’re just phones shots, they’ve come out nicely. Much post editing?
Cheers mate! The dials shot and the doors shot have a bit of fill-light (and look odd), but otherwise just straightened and cropped.

Interesting to see what you’ve managed with a phone camera, these look great. Times when I’ve only had my phone on me the pics have been as grainy as anything.

Thanks mate. I don’t think you’re going to get these with your I-phone etc. The Huawei has a twin lens Leica camera with full manual control. I think I’ve barely scratched the surface of what this is capable of. Watch this space!

Was a good wander, nice to get out!

I’ll see if I have anything worth putting up. Don’t think my phone pics will be as good!
