Latex – Without Jools Holland (not safe for work!)

Speaking of square images taken with a Holga – which we were, in my last post (See? I don’t just throw this stuff together) – I thought I’d show you a couple of images taken on my Holga during a studio session with the stunning Eliza Beth a couple of weeks ago.

Eliza came along to fotofilia for a shoot with myself and Christophe Dillinger, during which, Christophe and I experimented with some different cameras combined with lighting that they’re not necessarily associated with. I also shot some digital images as a kind of fall-back plan (I’d have hated to waste a shoot like this one). What I didn’t predict is that I’d much prefer the images taken with the Holga to those taken with my DSLR.

Christophe kindly developed and scanned my film and here’s the result, with only a smidgen of adjustment to contrast in Photoshop. In this case, I’ve chosen to display these two frames as a diptych…

Who’d have thought you could have so much fun with a beautiful woman, partially dressed in latex (Eliza Beth, not me – thankfully), in a darkened studio with a plastic camera? You would? Oh, yeah, okay.
