120 film in natural light in the front yard “pool” with Courtney.
We made this and a handful of other water themed images for a recent submission to @shotsmagazine last week. Its been a long time since I’ve stepped out of the backdrop setting of my make shift studios and swapped out my 4x5 to take pictures of something other than my daughters. At first the lack of control was frustrating. The dappled lighting, the tree overhead, focusing while handholding my twin lens struggling to balance standing on a stool hunched over my model were all throwing me off. I kind of thought this roll would be a wash. But all those things I thought were hindering me were actually coming together to paint a lovely picture. And the freedom of handheld and roll film helped me to make looser images which sometimes I love!
