Portraits // Carolyn
At the beginning of August, I had the pleasure of doing a fun shoot with a good friend of mine, Carolyn. We picked a location out in Saanich to shoot at; there is a gigantic tree in a field right by the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, so we trekked across and set up to shoot.
Though most of the images from this shoot are digital, I did bring my medium format Mamiya RB67 along as well, for the first time in a while! I tried out some new film I picked up from Camera Traders – the Lomography LomoChrome Purple film. I metered and shot it at 200 ASA to try and achieve a more saturated effect, as it can be rated between 100-400 ASA. Those images are included at the bottom of the post, as they are so vastly different I didn’t want to break up the digital images. It’s near impossible to colour balance this film, especially self-scanning. A before and after scan is included, and I did my best guesswork, basing my tones off some reference images online, to achieve a look I was happy with.
