Week 12 is the second week of trying out the new Portra 400, which also coincided with a photo-shoot I did for Sheridan Make Up Artist, Bethany Gilbert. The medium format version of Portra 400 is just as good, if not better than the 35mm version, same bright colours and finer grain than I’d expect from a 400 speed film, but then again Portra has always touted it’s fine grain, and it just got better.
The model was done up in a Cirque Du Solie inspired SFX makeup, and we used Gage Park in Hamilton, both outside and in the greenhouses as the backdrop for the shoot. We attracted a lot of attention.
