Lighting the way
Lighting the way
And here's what people had to say about it. BEFORE gas lighting, Bristol was a gloomy place with only rush lights, candles and oil lamps to light your way. Here are some dates. 1792 - Engineer William Murdoch uses coal gas to light his house and office in Cornwall. 1811 - John Breillat, a Bristol silk dyer, lights up his shop and later the street outside, with coal gas. 1812 - London Gas Lighting company formed - the first in the world. 1815 - Meetings held in the Commercial Rooms, and later the White Hart Inn, to set up a gas lighting company. 1816 - Gas mains laid around all Bristol's main streets, such as Wine Street, Corn Street and High Street. The gas works were situated on Temple Back. 1817 - There are so many subscribers (142) that the lamps go out. 1819 - Public lighting contract in place. 1821 - New gas works opened in Avon Street, St Philip's. 1823 - A rival company, The Bristol and Clifton Oil Gas Company, set up to supply gas made from oil. Their works were in Canons' Marsh. 1824 - Clifton's streets are lit up for the first time. 1825 - Gas lighting reaches as far as Totterdown. 1836 - The Clifton company now start producing coal gas. Gas for cooking is looked into. 1850 - Bristol's street lighting considered inadequate. 1853 - Bristol United Gaslight Company comes into being. 1856 - John Breillat dies. 1863/4 - Public displays of electric lighting threaten gas. 1891 - The Bristol Gas Company comes into being. 1892 - More than 2,000 gas cookers installed throughout the city. 1930 - Gas cookery 'demonstrations' take place at the Colston Hall. 1935 - Art Deco offices and showrooms opened next to the Colston Hall. The building has recently been demolished. 1949 - Bristol's gas company is nationalised. 1973/4 - North Sea gas comes on stream. Coal gas phased out. 1986 - Gas companies privatised. 'I have from inflammable matter in Pitt Coal made a light fit to light houses ... it appears to make a much better, more steady and much cheaper light than the oil lights now used.' John Champion, Bristol copper smelter, 1790. 'Coals and candles saved! Profit! Information! Amusement! Philosophical lights! - or most brilliant illuminations produced without candles, spirits or oil!' Early exhibition advertisement. (The demonstration was in Taylor's Court, off Broad Street.) 'A new and valuable discovery adapted for the illumination of all theatres, public gardens, churches, public offices, streets, dwelling houses, shops etc, etc, and of the most importance in all manufactories where heat and light are required.' Bristol Mirror advertisement, 1805. 'It seems strange that (people) should have been so reluctant to abandon their flickering, malodorous candles. The upper classes treated the innovation with contemptuous indifference.' John Latimer, Bristol historian, 1887.

A bit of a departure to the standard landscapes, but I thought it was worth a shot. This was taken for the PC Assignments group, with the assignment being Still Life. There were a few provisos attached to the brief: No natural or available light, must be in colour, no people or animals, and no fancy-dancy photoshop work. What it took: Really enjoyed this one - playing geek for the night! Had to decamp to Kirsty's kitchen to get a quality worktop and a gas hob (that also had the advantage of being clean!). Compositionally I tried to set it up so that the line of the handle was complemented by the knife and the beans. I quite liked the geometry created by the tiles, the counter top and the supports on the hob - it all seemed to come together under the duck quite nicely. The camera was on a tripod, partly mounted on the worktop. Controlled it using the laptop, just to see what it was like working that way (quite good - really handy for checking focus). The final settings for the camera were f6.3 and 4 seconds: it was a dark room, so mostly just flash light but it needed 4 seconds to get the nice blue glow from the gas flame. All the lights in the room were out, and I used two flashes fired with cheap radio triggers. The first was a 430EX gaffer taped to the tiles above the frying pan (somewhere around 1/64th power). It was gridded so that it lit only the inside of the pan, with no light spill anywhere else. The second flash was a 580EX used as fill (1/128 or 1/64th power). I started with it bare, but the shadows were too crisp. Then I tried using a bounce umbrella, but it meant that there was no light fall-off as the worktop receeded into the distance, so I ended up with the flash with a stofen diffuser inside a partially collapsed umbrella. Tried a few other options too, but this seemed to work best. (added a set-up shot below) In post, I didn't really have to do that much. Standard ACR adjustments, and minimal sharpening. I slightly dropped the saturation in the green channel to take the punch out of the veg, as I wanted the only really strong colours to be the duck and the flame. I also used a very slight touch of the burn tool on the tiles in the top left just to take the edge off the tiles. No rubber ducks were harmed in the production of this image.
