Forgotten portrait from the studio

scanA009Poor Hasselblad. He gets the opportunity to shoot some portraits alongside his digital counterparts, and then the nasty old photographer completely forgets about it and leaves the roll of film in the bottom of his bag for two years. That’s gratitude for you.

Anyway, this is Ambyr, who came to the studio ages ago as part of a portrait project on people with freckles. The digital pictures in the series have more freckly-oomph (because they were shot in colour and post processed with a blue bias), but we like this one for being a bit more honest.

• Hasselblad 500 C/M with 80mm lens. Shot on Ilford HP5 Plus, developed in Kodak D76.
