personal work ~ film photography

My friend Kelly was having a model stop by her place so that she could shoot some personal work and (generous soul that she is) invited me to tag along and shoot if I wanted to.  Did I want to?  Um…yes.

Thanks, Kel!  xoxo

Having never worked with a real model before this was such a unique experience.  The model, Echo, has a very moody and high-fashion look which is very different from what I usually shoot and it was a challenge working with her look yet creating images that still reflect my personal style and aesthetic.  I shot a roll of film and walked away with these…

image details: shot on a Contax 645 camera with Portra 400 film. Scanned by the friendly folk at Indie Film Lab.
