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.
Thanks to Derby Theatre for the chair & David Parkin for the lamp. And thank you to Woodrow Studios for the backdrop, which was actually hand painted in the studio.
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:
