The ‘Old Leather Chair’ project has been busy this week, I’ve shot another 14 people, which now brings the total to 22. My idea of stopping at 50 now appears unlikely, the whole thing has grown legs, if you’ll excuse the pun…is that a pun? Probably not, but some chairs do have legs. I don’t think mine does though.
I’ve learned a few things this week, things that after shooting film for years now, I should know – ALWAYS use a tripod, the picture quality improves vastly when using your 3-legged friend. ALWAYS use a handheld light meter and trust it. ALWAYS get your friends to come out and play when you’re shooting with heavy props, they can carry stuff while you prance around being arty.
I’m shooting the whole project using a Mamiya 7II camera, 80mm lens and Fuji Pro 400H film. I’m now also using my Sekonic light meter properly…
If you do feel the urge to use any of the images on my site, for ANY purpose, without my permission, please think again. It’s stealing.
