Linda Keaton, 1992
A survivor from my old fashion and beauty portfolio. The model is Linda Keaton, hair and make-up by Jackie Hicks and I wore the art director hat. We made the shot for our portfolios, and it was successful in opening some doors for us, I'm happy to say.
I decided to make digital copies of some old prints. The exercise demonstrated that I really need a proper copy board and calibrate my camera.
Technial: Hasselblad 500 CM, Zeiss Sonnar 150mm f/4, Agfa 25 film, north window light + Broncolor studio strobe, f/5.6 @ 1/8s, handheld to get slight flash blur, printed on Agfa Portriga Rapid Grade 3, Kodak Selenium Toner 1:32. Copied with a Nikon D700, Nikkor 50mm f14 G, ISO 200, f/5.6 @ 1/40s, lit with twin Flashpoint 5500K 85w fluorescent banks.
