It was beginning of May when Edith and I met. After some nice days, the weather had turned cold and unsettled again, so we decided to shoot in my studio.
Edith was great. Whenever I suggested a pose she did not simply strike it, but turned it into something much better. So I could fully entrust her with this part and focus myself more on perspective and light.
In total I used three light sources – mostly simultaneously. A big soft box and a spot on the one hand which were tungsten lights, and the little but still considerable natural light which was peeking through my small roof windows.
I was confident I could turn the two tungstens into great light, but when we started I wasn’t quite certain how. Especially due to the variable and therefore pretty unpredictable daylight. So I took quite a lot digital test shots with a Leica M before I started using film. Some of the digitals turned out really great. And because I don’t want to keep them from you, this post will show a mixture of digital and analog shots.
Used equipment: Leica M, Leica M7, M0.95/50, R2.0/180, Nikon F4, 1.8/105, Kodak Portra 400, SanDisk Extreme 😉
