When I was getting ready to do a photo shoot with Nova, I was excited to find that she had been featured in one of my favorite publications, “Victor” by Hasselblad. A beautiful publication that began as a very large format magazine and progressed to a book format. It is partially responsible for my having selected Hasselblad as my camera system.
So I was excited to have Nova sign her photograph in my copy of Hasselblad Victor Photography Book One during our photo shoot. And I am in great admiration of the original photograph and the series “Personal Visitation” by photographer Damon Loble. Applause!
By the way, it was the first time she had seen the publication and only had heard it was published.
“To Ian Thank you for a wonderful shoot!!”
Thinking I got this face mask thing wrong. OK, sheltering in place.
Had I known, I would have photographed the other side of the sign. Sheltering in place.
I have had so much high end camera equipment and lighting on photo shoots that the same amount of money could have bought a Ferrari. And then right in middle of it I bring out an instant camera of one kind or another. Various model Polaroids or Fujifilm Instax. I have shot entire features on Instant Film as well as photos that became art pieces, mounted, matted and framed. I love the look.
Here is one from a series with model Aristodeme. Shot with a Polaroid “Land” camera and peel apart film from Fujifilm. Thanks!
