Writer's Portrait

These photos were taken on my Minolta X-300 with Fomapan 200 pushed to 800. (My standard choice for camera and film nowadays.) My friend has a great face for photographs and I've been asking her for ages to come over for a photoshoot and we finally got around to it last weekend. I shot them in our kitchen after it got dark using a ring light precariously balanced on a tripod and despite the makeshift nature of the shoot, I think they turned out pretty well.

First off, a working shot, tripod and light setup visible. I'm so hi-tech.

 My friend was very keen on having photographs taken with her cigarette visible. She had a certain look in mind and while I'm not sure I captured what she wanted, I'm very pleased with how they came out. 

There were some photographs that turned out to be generically pretty but they're more for her and less fine art. 

She's just written a children's book and we're desperate for her to use the image above as her author photo! 


 Thanks for reading guys. I know updates here are infrequent and mostly that's because I'm doing so many things at the moment. Despite recently becoming unemployed. I'm thinking about a slight change of direction for this blog to start to incorporate more of my interests into one central place but nothing is decided yet so this may come to nothing. I'll try to update accordingly! Have a nice weekend everyone.
