Large format portrait: Anna & James

Written by Nasir Hamid on January 29th, 2012

Yesterday I took my 10×8 large format camera out to make this portrait. James and I used to work together around 10 years ago but now he lives and works in London. I had a feeling that James and Anna would get a kick out of seeing my 10×8 camera and I wasn’t wrong. We even caught the attention of passers by and it felt like the cars were slowing down to have a look as they drove past. As I was setting up the beast of a camera James snapped some behind the scenes shots with his iPhone 4S. Honestly, you couldn’t have chosen two cameras more different in size if you tried. One of James’ pics of my 10×8 monorail camera is below.

[Tech info:] Toyo 810G 10×8 monorail camera, Nikon 300mm lens, Adox CHS 100 film processed in Rodinal 1:50 for 10mins (20C).
