So yesterday I had a shoot with lovely Marie from Flag Models. I haven’t been doing much portraits this year and I thought it was high time to change that. Marie was such an inspiring model, that I even took some polaroids! And with my ever shrinking stash of the stuff, that is saying something. Anyway, I took two polaroids and then bleached the negatives, the results of which you can see here. :)
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.
