Photo shoot: Kristina

Written by Nasir Hamid on December 1st, 2012

You might recognise Kristina from some of my Oxford Fashion Week images because that’s where I first met her. I made these shots during a short photo shoot in my lunch break. The light was very flat on a cold overcast day. Kristina’s outfit certainly wouldn’t have been my first choice as being particularly photogenic but sometimes as a photographer you have to work with what you’re given. The light bouncing off of the white jumper was so bright compared to everything else in the scene but the film and processing has kept it under control nicely. I semi-stand developed this film which tends to retain highlight and shadow detail incredibly well.

[Tech info:] Pentax 67, 105mm/f2.4 lens, Kodak Tri-X film processed in Rodinal 1:100 for 1 hour (semi-stand).

    Fantastic as always! The dark’s are a bit deeper than most of your other work too 🙂

      Thanks, Tomaz. For these I imported the scans into LR for adjusting and making the grid then out to Photoshop for final contrast, sizing and my border. Usually I just use Photoshop so that might be why these are a little different. The negs scanned really flat for some reason but that might be due to the overcast light that day.

    Beautiful tones! Did you just agitate gently 30s first time and then one time at 30min? That is what I do hehe
