It was a lovely day filled with good company, delicious food, and photos!
Basically all I need in life.
We explored with a purpose in mind and came across some fantastic places to shoot.
I only shot film.
That was the way in which I chose to challenge myself.
I used an unfamiliar camera, the Contax 645 and my trusty, super basic, no frills light meter.
I shot all of these with Fugi 400H and Kodak Tri-X then had them scanned and processed at the FIND lab.
I also added some photograph techniques that I dont usually use and that was especially fun.
This portion of our shoot features some slow shutters.
I really LOVE a slow shutter.
Kate came up with a whole different idea for her challenge and I think you will melt into a puddle on the floor when you see her images because I saw a couple on the back of her camera and they were seriously blowing my mind.
I will let her tell you about her vision on her blog. Be sure to visit.
By the way, this collaboration is a 3 part series for me. It begins in the Locker Room…
I was thrilled when Nicole expressed a desire to explore the concept of bulimia.
A taboo topic in our society but one that is fueled by the social expectation to be thin and beautiful.
So many have fallen victim to the darkness that surrounds the act.
Very few will ever talk about it publicly.
We wanted to shed a little light on the subject.
Conceptually of course.
