What do people do on Sunday afternoons? Exactly. Make origami cranes and hang them up on the ceiling and then take pictures with them! Duh. ;)
I don’t know what it is with me and origami. I just get so fascinated by it. Back in the day when I was still young and innocent and working on my first 365 project, I already had a strange love affair with origami birds. I guess it is just one of those things you can’t explain.
Anyhow, after making some digital self portraits with the cranes, I also made a polaroid self portrait. And while doing that, I also made a behind the scenes video! It’s like I’m three people in one! ;) So here’s a little insight into what goes on in my living room when I get a creative rush.
And here is the scanned polaroid. :)
It is true: shooting digital is faster, easier, safer and gives you a whole lot of frames to choose from. There are times when I feel my film camera is just weighing me down, and as it is also heavy and slow, it has been getting left behind quite a bit lately. But honestly, when I think about it: I just can’t get over film. I just love the emotion of it. And while I love my 6×7 camera (Mamiya RZ67), maybe the square has had me from the start. So here is one from the archives, with model Renée Van Osta and makeup artist Kathleen Van Walle.
I had been thinking about creating some custom postcards for a while, so after quietly pondering it for several months, I decided to finally give it a go! What do you think? Would you be happy if you were to receive one of these? :)
