Frances + Sky, Mentor Headlands, Ohio, September 19, 2014


Every once in a while film is exposed on this side of the pond, and such was the case this past weekend with my dear friend Frances. Over the past few weeks we threw some ideas around, from themes to wardrobe, and settled on a few of each for this session. We met at my home and drove out to Mentor Headlands on a beautiful, sunny afternoon.
When we arrived we were surprised to find so many people on the beach, and even a few photographers. Quickly we set up and started with the ideas. First we played with the lighter pieces, and made use of sunglasses with the harsh light. As the sun set her eyes took center stage, as she was able to look into the lens without hesitation.
The five images below are but a handful from over 120 film images, each with its own combination of composition and expression. I am grateful to have had this chance, and look forward to this weekend's repeat session!


Note: These images were exposed onto Fuji Neopan Acros 100 ISO film with a Hasselblad 555 ELD/180mm combination.
