Drapes and a girl
One thing that I really like is to book a model I never met, decide a time and a place and just take the photos that comes in mind during the photo session, no other planning. Okej, some planning, I tell the model to bring som clothes she really like and some makeup.
What I like about this is that I never know what kind of pictures I will leave with.
This time I had a horrible day and when it was time to shoot I didn’t have any ideas. That’s when i found this drape in the studio and just began shooting whatever popped up in my mind. Some of the pictures i shot through the drapes and others she used it as clothing.
The camera for this shoot was a Pentax 67 II, a camera I hadn’t used for years so it felt lonely. I took three rolls of film, thought 15 images where quite good and ended up with these four because these went well together.
I wanted to try something new with the lighting so I took a Profoto head with the standrad reflector and pointed it towards two bookends to get a big light source. There is also a flash pointed at the background and that gives a litte fill to her.
The film I used was Fuji Astia and after scanning I almost haven’t done anything to them, I even kept the purple tint after.
