Photo shoot: Grey Elephant

Written by Nasir Hamid on June 19th, 2013

This was a really fun photo shoot that came together yesterday. Josh contacted me to see if I would be interested in photographing this Elephant costume he had made for a party. I was instantly intrigued to see it so of course I said yes. This took him a week to make and it’s mostly made of foam, I was very impressed! Tamsin came to the photo shoot and we all had a lot of fun making pictures. At least I think Josh had fun because this was the hottest and most humid day of the year so far and I was concerned he might keel over from dehydration. (The last shot got a little ruined from the humidity). These are Fujiroids, I did also shoot some film so those shots will follow once I’ve developed them. I’ve built up quite a batch of colour rolls of film to develop from this year so it will be exciting to start developing them soon.

[Tech info:] Mamiya Universal, 100mm/3.5 lens, Fuji FP-100C instant pack film (expired).

    This set of photos would be more intriguing with no background story! Especially the last one with the humidity affected print …

      That’s interesting, I never considered that the background stories I write might actually take away from the images. I suppose viewers always have the option of just looking at the pictures and skipping the text. I use this blog as a notebook for myself so that I can look back on previous shoots (my memory isn’t what I used to be) so the background info and the tech info helps me 🙂
