A photograph is worth a hell of a lot more than a thousand words…

My “first model”

img035loresThis is Donna…well, this is Donna’s back.

Donna is the very first person to model for me. She & I were dating when I first got into photography. She is a photographer as well. In the summer of ’06, I suggested that we take a photography class together. She was a hobbyist photographer, but had not taken any formal classes.

I didn’t give a rat’s ass about the class, I merely suggested it as something for us to do together. The rest is history.

Donna and I are no longer together, but I still photograph her from time to time. this one, is actually from the At Sem project from last semester…

  1. Good call on the sepia. Definitely brings out the skin textures.

    • Actually, that isn’t sepia. This isn’t a print, but rather a scan of the negative. I usually scan my black and white negs as a color negative. The result, depending on the type of film, is a pleasing warm tone.
      This film, by the way, is Illford HP5.

      • Large format? Very nice work. Good to see other serious film shooters.

  2. Thank you. Yes, this is 4×5. Most of the large format stuff is 8×10, but budget constraints had me shooting the 4×5 last semester.
