It’s always great to start the week off shooting with someone you’ve known for ages. Love working with Candace!
Mostly shot with my trusty Rollei and Ilford Pan F 50. I love the Ilford 50/Rollei matchup. The textures and shadows I get with this film make my mouth water just a little. It’s a very luxurious film that lends itself quite well to my love of dark bits. Very rich.
We started working a bit earlier than I like. I usually love working around noon so that I can really push the limits of the contrast. I can see all you photographers shaking your head at me, but that’s how I like it! I don’t care for soft shades with my work… I want them harsh and dramatic. I can appreciate the early morning light and the late afternoon light even better. I just find, for me, that there’s still an abundance of goodness with harsh noon light. I picked that up when working with toy cameras, holgas and dianas. You need a lot of light with these cameras. I guess I never got used to getting up early either. Not my cup of coffee. And I need at least 3 of those before I begin. Better than smoking pot I guess. ha.
We finished earlier and dropped down into the little shop area of Todos Santos. We ate lunch at Los Adobes then Candace sampled some tequila, and I managed to get a few snap shots. All in time to be back for the model group shoot which I already posted. 🙂
