Photo shoot: Charlie

Written by Nasir Hamid on April 27th, 2013

Here’s a set of images from my first shoot I had with Charlie. This was a very quick shoot using only natural daylight coming in through a large window in the late afternoon. I decided to take the opportunity to test out a lens that I’ve had sitting around for quite a while but have never used, a 110mm f2.8. One of my favourite lenses for my Mamiya 645 is the 80/f1.9 and I use it so often that you’d think it was welded on but the depth of field at f1.9 is so shallow that I tend to use that lens mostly at f2.8. When I decided to test out my 110/f2.8 lens I used it wide open at f2.8 for these shots. I really like how these shots turned out but I need to do further testing outside with more distance to the background so that I can see what the bokeh is like with this lens.

[Tech info:] Mamiya 645 Pro TL, 110/f2.8 lens, loaded with Kodak Tri-X 400 film, processed in Kodak HC110 1+31 (dilution b).

    Very good use of natural light. I liked 80mm f/1.9 N when I had my 645 AFD III but it was a pain to nail the focus specially with a digital back!

    I really like the portrait on the top right. The side light gives a beautiful texture to the hair and a mystery to the face.
