Images from my Shoot with Shanice last Sunday in Antwerp. We already wanted to shoot for a long time, but it has never worked out. A few days ago I was at her agency browsing through sedcards of models …and when presented with Shanice’ I recognized her, and we made an appointment for a shoot. I then wrote to her on facebook arranging the final details and saw our last conversation: where we agreed that we defintely have to shoot in 2011… so finally now, with a year delay, our shoot 🙂
I was actually hoping – and the forecast made me hopeful – that we will have sun; so I asked for dark clothes and chose a citylike environment for a high-contrast, urban look. Well, the sun was hiding behind clouds for the better part of the shoot, and so the desired contrast was not really available. We walked around the harbour area of Antwerp and found some interesting spots.
While shooting I was seeing so many nice expressions of Shanice that I wanted to dedicate one roll of film for portraits only. I chose an old textured door with nice light as our “backdrop”. We actually used two rolls of films for the portraits, and I am glad we did – these are my favorite images from the shoot.
I challenged myself by shooting Rolleiflex only, which is demanding in terms of composition for me… but rewarding as well. Film is Fuji Acros 100. I posted again more images than I think I should, some are weaker, some are stronger – but often that is a matter of taste as well, so I posted all that I found acceptable.
