I’ve not shown much stuff from my Leicester studio, so I thought I’d get in some friends for a photo shoot. I asked Danni Spooner & Carise ZM for some 20’s/30’s style, but with a modern twist. And that’s just what they did.
As well as shooting digitally, I thought I’d take the large format camera for a spin. This is Sinar F1 large format camera, where the film negatives are 5″ x 4″. It’s enormously difficult to focus, so you may notice a bit of arty soft focus with the film images. I’m going to make that focusing easier, soon. For the technical, the film was Ilford FP4+ developed in ID-11.
This was the set up for the above photo, with the Sinar in the foreground, appropriately out of focus. I used the same lighting for both the digital photos, and the film.
And the digital photos:
