Last week I collaborated with a fellow photographer, Melissa Scheuerman, on a shoot for designer Cat Reinheimer. I wanted to try my hand at shooting fashion and portraits with film, since most of my film work that I have done has been street photography or landscape photography. So I basically just creeped on the shoot with my Canon AE-1
Results were better than expected! As usual I used Kodak Portra 400 film. Models featured are Alice Goodman and Amelia Iachi.
I really liked shooting fashion and concept in film and I think I’m ready to do it when I do my own shoots now. The reason I have held off for so long on shooting fashion with film is because there is so much that goes into a creative concept shoot that to not have the photos turn out would be a disservice to everyone involved. I never really care so much if my street photos don’t turn out because I only disappoint myself. I’ll probably do both a mix of film and digital for quite a bit though, just in case!
It helps that Ritz Camera is still open in Towson. They did a great job processing and they charged $30 for three rolls. I love Tech Lab, but Ritz got the job done just as well in so much shorter of a time span.
