Selfie on the Rollei. Again

JohnCoates010

The Rollei’s been getting some action again recently (about time!) and this was the final image on the end of a roll. Well, no sense in not using up a film, is there?

Shot on some very out of date Kodak Portra. Lavazza in the mug. And yes, the office does need a tidy up.

Test shooting in the office

We’re always trying out new spaces to shoot in. A few weeks ago, the brilliant Bernadette Lemon came round to help us try out a few locations in the office, which has these lovely skylight windows in the ceiling.

We’d love to tell you the results were amazing and it’s revolutionised the way photography will now be done in the studio, but sadly that’s not the case. Dull days mean 1/15 sec and difficult focusing and the room really isn’t big enough to work easily without knocking over your tripod (three times). And people come traipsing through every now and again… moan, moan, moan!

Anyway, it wasn’t all a completely disaster: Hasselblad managed to get a few nice, clean simple portraits of Bernadette, this one being our favourite.
