"Eventually Even the Stars will Fade."
As you can tell my first real experience of photography was in those slightly cheesy but absorbing books that used to appear in WHSmiths, packed full of starburst filters and soft lens.Its when photography kinda felt illicit and mysterious to me. Emma and I wanted to do something very different from what we normally do on this shoot- you will be able to see the rest in GangUp magazine when it surfaces in the summer.
Ambient light and a bounce/gelled strobe. Focussing through tights is a fucker- especially when you have gaffer taped the lens. Shot on a the might James Kendalls 6x6 Bronica, on some 2yr expired fuji400H 120 film, this is handheld at 1/15s with some white tights over the lens to give that distinctive feel.
Oh and flickr has done something hideous to the colours on this... its not really jaundiced.
