Yesterday I got my Pentax 67II back (again). I’m sure that this time it will not freak out and I’ll be able to shoot more. I have tonnes of film which I’ve collected now, and I can’t wait to shoot through all of it. I’ve been wanting to try something new, and something about shooting models/fashion is really interesting to me. I guess I’m curious about how that type of shooting is different from what I’m used to and how that might affect my idea of photography. I’ll be throwing myself in the deep end - but that’s always a good place to be. So much to learn. It’s also going to be a great way for me to discover film and all of it’s facets/attributes. I want to be comfortable enough with film that I could conduct any session with complete confidence that the images will come out the way I want them to. Yesterday I just HAD to shoot something as soon as I got the camera back to check that it is working. Everything seems fine. I ended up crashing my friend Berkley's shoot. She's a really talented photographer in town. She was shooting around the corner, so I swung by and shot a few frames on film. My film wasn't quite fast enough for how dark it was outside, so most of the shots have a little too much shake. These are things I will get better at. So. You can expect more models and fashion-esque shooting from here on out. If you model and you’re following me, from Vancouver or Victoria, or anywhere that I might end up in the future, let’s get connected. This is Berkley, shooting Cassidy. — Portra 400, 1-stop push, rated at ISO 320. 105mm f/2.4 @ f/2.4.
