Make-up and hair: Elisa
Location: Hof ter Saksen – between Antwerp and Gent
I left the house Sunday morning at 09:00 and returned just before 19:00. With about 50 minutes driving each direction, this leaves more than 8 hours actually shooting/working …on a weekend ….”just for fun”… quite absurd … or not? …best time of the week for me
At least half of the eight hours is make-up/hair/styling/waiting/walking between the different locations and our shooting-shed (see pictures)… but still, Shauna and myself were really “done” and exhausted at the end…the last couple of frames I really had to fight…. cameras can get very heavy!
After arriving at the location, it looked quite familiar – and somehow I’ve been there before…but was not sure where I knew it from… later I found some spots that I used already as location for a shoot roughly a year ago – either I am getting too old or Belgium too small…. anyhow, it was a great place with a mansion, lots of woods, a little river – weather was great, too. As I had some time while waiting for the make-up and styling, I made use of it and bothered the girls with taking quite a few making-of pictures (see below)…
I used the Contax 645 again filled with Fuji Acros, Kodak 160NC and Fuji Pro 400H for the shoot – only the making-of’s are shot with a Leica and Tri-X Film… colour film should be back from the lab during the week. I will add them once ready.
Many thanks to Shauna, Elisa and Sanne for the great day, great performance and support!!
P.S. I have been asked quite a few questions on my “workflow”, development, chemicals, scanning etc… as soon as I find some time, I will dedicated a post on that…Update: I added the colour pictures… I basically exposed everything at Iso 100 – the Fuji 400H as well as the 160NC.
