Kristina Paulk Photoshoots
Selected photos of model Kristina Paulk (Model Mayhem #1786240) from an urban walkabout shoot (April 2011) and a film noir shoot (October 2010) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

On the walkabout shoot, Kristina worked with me in a variety of Philadelphia locations over the span of an afternoon. Her grace and library of poses, plus her willingness to experiment, made this shoot fun and worthwhile. The goal was to pick up a series of vintage-style shots to leverage her clothing choices--evocative of the 1940s and, later, the 1960s. Most of the shots were made with my 1953 f/3.5 5cm Elmar, a classic Leica lens. Black and white work was processed as Panatomic-X, a vintage film stock, with TrueGrain. The main challenges of this shoot were dealing with non-directional light and also leveraging strong colors in the backgrounds--while not revealing the time period.

At the film noir shoot, Kristina modeled splendidly (and demonstrated great patience) as I worked through multiple noir lighting setups. Elegant, graceful work throughout.

Thanks, Kristina!

BTW, I'm Will Stotler, the photographer, Model Mayhem #1338163.
