New Pictures: Yuli

I just uploaded the pictures of Yuli from spring, 2004. The light was coming and going in a crazy way. Sometimes she was in shade and the entire background was in sun or vice versa. This is the last outdoor shoot I did before deciding that I wanted to learn to do studio stuff so I could have more control. I spent the summer of 2004 in the studio, and then of course about the time it started raining wanted to go outdoors again. (Sigh). Anyway, there are some fun shots in there despite everything.

In other news, I have the stuff to develop black and white film coming Monday, and a new camera coming Tuesday hopefully. It's a Mamiya TLR - if you were a wedding photographer or a journalist in the 60s or 70s there's a decent chance you had one of these. It actually shoots the same format as the Holga but it actually has nice optics and so forth. I don't expect it to be a major focus of my work, but they're fun and it's a change and they're actually pretty cheap on the used market.

In terms of shooting news, I have some interesting but somewhat tentative things scheduled for the next week, and of course the usual portrait work which is always fun. But nothing of general interest to report quite yet.

Oh, and some old blog items might have shown up in your feed, or you might have noticed a model or two get renamed on the main pages. It happens - if you can't find who you're looking for hopefully you can figure it out from the thumbnails.
