Venue: The Mill, a Nottingham nightclub near the centre of town. As well as the latest 80s music they had light displays and smoke machines. This image was used in an article in the September 1983 edition of the British Journal of Photography about the final diploma show at Trent Polytechnic.

Saturday night

The Palais in Nottingham in 1982 or 83. Part of my nightlife project as a photography student at Trent Polytechnic. Hand held photography at night using film was not overly easy.

Kiev 4A camera, 50mm lens. Likely shot wide open (f2.8) 1/25th of a second,  HP5 film plus extended development
