Photo shoot: Tamsin

Written by Nasir Hamid on June 16th, 2013

These images are all from my first photo shoot with Tamsin which went extremely well and was very enjoyable. I’ve wanted to shoot with Tamsin for a while but timings and weather never seemed to work out so I was pleased that we were able to arrange this shoot before the end of the academic year and the summer break. For this shoot I took along three different cameras, these shots are from two of them (medium format Rolleiflex 6×6 and 35mm Nikon), the other was a Mamiya Universal that I used to shoot some Fuji instant pack film, those shots can be found here.

This shoot went so well that I managed to finish a few different rolls of film – I don’t usually have enough time to finish more than one or two. The others haven’t been developed yet so those shots will follow at a later time.

[Tech info:] Rolleiflex SL66, 80mm/2.8 Zeiss lens,  loaded with Kodak Tri-X 400, processed in Kodak HC110 1+31 for 7:30. And a Nikon FM2, 50mm/1.4D lens, loaded with Kodak TMAX 400, processed in Kodak HC110 1+31 for 5:30.

      Thank you very much, Shelly. I’ve been inspired by so many other photographers that it’s nice to pay it forward somehow 🙂 I really like those shots you mentioned and I wish I could have made them on medium format but I only had a waist level finder with me on that shoot.

    I’m with agreement with Shelly – my favourites are those looking down. Of those, my absolute favourite is the one in the bottom right of the first set of four. I like how both the lines and the light lead to the face…
