“It isn't always your choice of camera, but the photographers eye, that counts” so the Guardian Camera Club state in an effort to make those of us who don't much fancy splashing out an arm and two legs on multiple lenses feel better about themselves. Good job too because all Ian Rands had to capture a season of snapshots at the home of his beloved Sheffield United was his trusty old mobile phone. Could that work? Well, yes, with bells on.
"You won't see much match action, more the reaction and everything else that goes off around Going to the Match" says Rands, prompting nods of approval all round in this parish. There's a filmic quality to his work as he lets rip with his photographic imagination aided, of course, with the odd filter for a dash of drama.
