New Model: Zinn

Whew! I finished editing Zinn Star's shots - it ended up being one of these highly productive shoots, so there's a ton of pictures. This includes both digital and film mixed together - I only split them out when I keep the square crop on a square film camera. This was with a 6x7cm negative, which turns out to be just about the same aspect ratio as 8x10 so I just crop to 8x10. (These shots are both from film as it happens)

I'm going to try to keep to this every-Friday schedule for a while, and I have taken enough shots to cover the next two Fridays with one more shoot scheduled. It's a good thing I have some extra shoots ready to be edited - I need to focus on things like platinum prints for a bit and I'll probably cut down on actual shooting for a bit other than portrait shoots and if a model too great to pass up appears.

I dono, I've found that I approach the shot differently with a natively 8x10 aspect ratio camera than I do with a wider camera.

Kinda like how square format works, but different.

With the digital I know I'm going to crop everything to 8x10 so I just allow for that. I've been doing it for years so I basically don't even see the extra space.

Similarly when I shoot a square crop I have in mind if I'm going to leave it square or if I'm going to crop to 8x10 while I'm shooting. The nice thing about square is you don't have to turn the camera on its side, you just crop it differently...
