Carly is Urban Woman Facing Big World In Small Body...

You may remember THIS POST from about a week and a half ago. Well, I took some pictures of Carly as a graduation present and this was the very last frame. I just pulled the Polaroid and put it down on the table and shot it with a digital camera. I did do a little dodging and burning in Photoshop, but not much. Carly is playing God in a play on Friday, then leaving for Italy and England on Saturday. Be safe Carly and bring me back a cheesy souvenir.

God, I look so moody. But I guess that's the point. Thanks for the presents... we're having a hell of a time deciding which one to use. And, yeah, I'll bring you souvenir frorm somewhere fun.

It's cool to see the print side of yout type 55 work. You usually show the scanned negatives if I'm not mistaken. Good stuff.

I wanted you to be a woman.

I love the look of the focus & light on these portraits of yours. I have an aversion to film, but found the Zoerk Multi Focus System to play with:

What aperture do you usually use for these portraits?

Michael Czeiszperger said @ 06/26/2005 07:02 AM PST

I was in a hurry so I didn't put up tech info when I posted this, so here is what you're looking for Michael.

camera/film: Horseman LX 4x5, Schneider 360mm 6.8 Symmar-S. Polaroid Type 55 Pos/Neg. I always shoot these types of portraits wide open at 6.8 with a bit of forward tilt on the lens board. That's how I get the shallow depth of field.
