History with a difference: instead of Kodachrome, one of those exercises where the client insisted that bigger was inevitable better. The client was a maker of ethnic Scottish jewellery, as you can tell from the brooch, I suppose. This was part of a studio calendar I did for him. It wasn't all sand 'n' surf.
Ektachrome 64, Hasselblad 500CM and 4/150mm Sonnar with the added interference of a Softar, which was fashionable at the time, but which in a digital age is not necessary... but those pale outlines did carry a sort of snobby street cred in some places at the time. Other people thought there was something wrong with the film. Oh, photography.
I tried to post this yesterday, but for some odd reason it went as pink as a flamingo the moment it landed within LuLa. I've made another jpeg, checked it was the right space (it was) and so I hope for the best.
Model: Nina Carter, aka Mrs Rick Wakeman.
According to the Sun newspaper, then a better casting medium than most agencies, she was blessed with the finest pair in the land. And to think I have none of them left... trannies, I mean.
P.S. It's gone pink again, but not as badly. I suppose if one thinks strawberry blonde...
P.P.S. The original tranny was copied on a Kodak lightbox using the D700 and a second-hand manual 2.8/105 Micro Nikkor. Good buy.
