expecting to fly
I am changing sequence of events a bit… normally another shoot should be coming now, but I still have some colour film at Richard’s Photo Lab to be developed and scanned (first time for me – I am very curious about the results!). It was very scary sending the film off with the uncertainty if it would arrive. I received the email from RPL last Friday night (afternoon in LA) that my film has arrived – I was dancing 🙂
…because of that I will post them together with the other shots from the session whenever I have the scans back… this is one shoot thereafter with my favorite black model …. she is so beautiful and so nice, it is a real pleasure shooting with her… these are as well the first pics with my new favorite camera, a Plaubel Makina 67… 6×7 was the last “main” format I was not using ….and after seeing a good offer, I decided to change that. I love this camera – it looks a bit awkward, but works like a dream, it folds to a relative small size, is easy to operate and is safely handhold-able down to 1/15th… even 1/8th if you concentrate… the amazing 2.8/80 lens and the large negative format do the rest. I was amazed by the tones. I developed the negatives in a rotary processor for 5 minutes in HC110 (B) and they looked perfect right from the scanner… film was Kodak Tri-x. I used as well the Nikon FM3A with Tri-X and Polaroid 180 camera with Fuji FP100c and Polaroid Sepia Film…. the polaroids are at the end as you will notice.
