As my new flash (a vivitar 285) had been sat in my bag unused for weeks i finally managed to get my wife to pose for some portriats for me. This was my first venture with proper flash photography and it was highly enjoyable. Mistakes were made though, i need to use my reflector better as most of the shots had a great big shadow off to one side. But we learn through mistakes so it didnt bother me too much. I like some of the shots that came out though:
Portra is such a good film. I hadn't used it for portraits before but the skin tones have come out great, ill be using it a lot more in future. I had a fiddle in photoshop with one of the images, turning it into a cyanotype. I can't decide whether i rpefer this or the original, what do you think?
