Back in April at the FPP Walking Workshop I had the chance to work with some studio lights. One of the things to come out of the first round with the studio light was the Polaroid Portraits that I was very proud of. But on the Sunday before the Large Format workshop kicked off I again hooked up one of my cameras to the same light and with the help of Professor Jeff got all the settings landed and began to pull people who were in attendance into my studio for a quick shot. Loaded into my camera was a single roll of Kodak Portra 160NC (one of my last rolls!) so I had a total of twelve shots. Now usually when I get the negs back, I don’t post every frame, however in this case I loved every shot. Sure the colour balance is off, and they’re a bit over exposed, but this was the first time working in such an environment for me. I’m going to be doing more of this working with my own strobist gear and my now trusty workhorse studio camera the Bronica SQ-Ai, and sticking to B&W film (faster for me to develop).
