Hey everybody,

I'm back in Florida from home in Tennessee for Christmas, and I managed to get a shoot in on New Year's Eve while I was there. Since I haven't posted in a long time, I figured I'd put these up. Got to try out one of the new lenses from Christmas -- woo-hoo! A 210mm for my Contax 645 (and just fyi, shot on Kodak Portra 400VC, rated at 100, then pulled two stops in processing). Model (and MUA) is Amy from Memphis:





Originally she was just gonna be the MUA, and another girl was gonna model, but that girl didn't show up, didn't contact me, nothin', and since Amy models too, she was cool enough to pull double duty on this one. Any Memphis area photogs, she comes HIGHLY recommended!

I was trying to put a commercial spin on these and put more emphasis on the hair... So anyways, good or bad, lemme know what you think!

Sam

P.S.: I realize the slightly different coloring between the two images -- either way you prefer over the other?

Let me get this straight - you overexposed and then shortened the processing? This is supposed to give a better toe in the gamma profile, right? Could be the digitalization, or my monitor, but I'm not getting more shadow detail, FWIW. As for coloring, I prefer the warmer one.

OTOH, the styling and composition reminds me of Kade Lam, which, IMO, is quite a compliment.

Thanks for sharing.

John -- You are correct sir, I wanted more detail in the negative (even though you can't tell it here) to give me more latitude to just experiment with and try some different things. But yep, by the time I was done processing it you can't see any detail in the shadow side of her face here, even though in the negatives you can see her camera left eye, part of her ear, and even a tiny bit of detail in her hair on that side, too.

And thank you very much -- any reference to me with Kade Lam in the same sentence I take as a BIG compliment!

Yassy -- Thanks a bunch!

Here's another one from the same session that shows more detail in the shadow side, given a low-contrast treatment this time. Film was Tri-X 320, rated at 160, then pulled 1&2/3 in processing:
