Oxford: Pandora’s Box

Written by Nasir Hamid on June 21st, 2012

You may recognise some of these students from my Keble College Ball images but then again you might not because of the cool outfits and make-up they’re wearing. I really enjoyed photographing this creative group as they prepared to go to a party where the theme was Pandora’s Box but it was a shame we didn’t have much time for photography before they had to leave for the party. Hopefully we can collaborate on other future photo shoots.

These are all Fuji instant pack film prints (similar to Polaroids). I did also shoot a little bit of film but the rolls aren’t finished yet.

[Tech info:] Mamiya RB67, 90mm lens and sliding Polaroid back.

The evening light was fantastic by our local lake.

Lit by the setting sun.

In the garden of the house where everyone was getting ready.

The wings ended up getting coloured in a little later.

Another shot in the back garden.
