My First Production – Chicago

The week before last I was in Chicago:  the city where I put together my first complete photo production as an amateur.  It was about a decade ago I guess.  And the shoot wasn’t really for anything, but it sure was a lot of work.  I had to secure this old historical society home.  A friend of my aunt let me use completely vintage outfits.  I found a model, makeup and hair.  It was a busy day and a tight schedule.

I shot these with a Hasselbad 500c with slide film (maybe Fuji Astia).  The first shot is natural light coming through a tree with a medium size reflector.   The second shot I believe is an white umbrella on  a Calumet Travelite to appear like window light.
