I am writing up this post for a couple of reasons. One, to share a few shots from a recent photo shoot that I had the opportunity to have recently with musician Sean Roux. He wanted a classic, casual look to the photos so we shot nearly entirely on my Hasselblad which I love shooting with and we got some really great images from the session. We used nothing but natural lighting in a few casual scenarios around in his daily life and I am really happy with the way they came out. Thanks for the opportunity and permission to share them here with everyone Sean!
The second reason to post this is to raise awareness that the films I used on the session apparently are in the process of being discontinued!!! Ugh! I just had the opportunity to try the fuji negative Pro color films and they are beautiful! I prefer them greatly to the Kodak Portra stuff that I had been shooting with before. And even worse, they are also going to stop making Neopan400 black and white film in 120 size! WTH is all that about? I just cant believe that, neopan400 is the only black and white film I shoot with in my Hasselblad and for good reason, its beautiful and versatile. All this news has me pretty depressed tonight really. Such is life. Well see how the situation develops. I sure am tempted to get a small credit card of some kind to buy up a bunch of these films to last me for a couple of years of shooting at least. Sigh, damn technology.
Anyways, hope you enjoy the photos. You can see more of them after the read more break below :)
