Post shoot notes: Elanora

That's right, Elanora. Regulars will know that back in the day I shot with her not once, not twice, but three times. But she hasn't been modeling much or at all recently... until the other day she sent me a note saying she's starting back up modeling some more. As always with these notes I just skimmed through the images to make sure they copied OK - this one is about midway through and this one is shot 9999 - just before I rolled the counter on the camera.

One thing I had to do was basically make a laundry list of every kind of lighting I've started doing since she was last here - nice way of measuring progress, I suppose. We got through a lot of it in about 2.5 hours which is about as long a shoot as makes sense with this stuff (usually by then we're both tired - it's harder work than you would guess).

I took two rolls with the Holga - those might actually go up on the site first since that's just 24 shots. I'm hoping to get them developed tomorrow and scanned later in the week (whenever my scanner arrives). If they're even vaguely recognizeable I'll post at least one or two. I suspect that it might be a couple of shoots before I get anything really good though - I'm not so sure I have exposures and things set up that well. And I'm just praying the flash sync is accurate. One funny thing is that I kept orienting the camera in the portrait position - on its side - but the camera uses square film so that's just silly. Old habits die hard. I also took a roll outdoors so even if the studio stuff was a failure I might have some shots of lemons. Hey, it's better than nothing.
