Fixe pour des tas d’années

I have a love/ hate kind of relationship with my 35mm, but  lately I’ve been leaning more towards the ‘love’ part. 35mm is raw, it’s honest. It always takes me forever to finish a roll though. For example I started this particular roll last year, there are photos of a shoot in November on it, and I finished it well, last week. A little reminder for me to shoot more of it (and maybe a little less 120 might be good for the wallet too!).

This day was so much fun, and so exhausting at the same time. I had a shoot planned with the lovely Renée but I didn’t quite know what the concept could be. I was thinking about it for two weeks, going back and forth and about two days before the shoot was due, I decided I was going to do a shoot inspired by the color white. This was one of those things I had been thinking about for quite a long time, but didn’t quite know how to pull it together. I got so excited about the idea though that I forgot my ‘impeccable’ timing and decided to just go for it. So the day before I went to the store, bought some cheap white fabric (one for a tutu, another for a dress), and folded hundreds of white origami flowers. And even though it was a lot of work in very little time, I really enjoyed it. I would quite like to get more into ‘set making’ and things like that. Well, enough talk, here are some polaroids!
