First photo session after coming back from the highly inspiring Traveling Light. I was really eager to shoot and good that Nakriko from Moscow was “in town”. I dusted off my Contax 645, which was still packed away after it had some weird issue with the lens. I sort of managed to fix it by myself, however, I think the camera could use a good service! Stephanie recharged the batteries of her Sony A7 and filmed the shoot (see the film and friends video at the end of this post!) I tried to introduce a little aspect of time and place, show some surroundings, where its happening. Will work on that more in the future – to add another dimension.
Black and whites are Tri-x or Tmax shot mainly on Contax 645 (some on Mamiya RZ67 and some on Hasselblad 501cm)
Colour is Portra 400 and my friends at Carmencita Film Lab really nailed these scans – the light was often risky, very high contrast and I was struggling at times scanning the black and white, but what they sent me in terms of colour really impressed me! (Thanks guys!!)
