First Nudes-1971

While doing some studio cleaning I found a binder of
unmounted chrome and among them a roll of Ektachrome
from 1971. I took these while a freshman and the shoot was
in my dorm room, the models name is lost to the ages, if you
know her from 1971, let me know!
The images themselves are not very interesting in themselves
but more a marker, I would like to think I've
come a long way since then.

I've been scanning some older work from the 70's and came across
this self portrait with a model from like 1974. I'm in the reflection of
a mirror and I'm pretty sure thats my Nikon F2 and my first 20mm

Holga nudes

This summer I shot some studio nudes with the Holga. In some ways
they look too resolved and too sharp.

printed this one.

Rethinking RAW conversions

Reworking the conversions of the files I
shot this last weekend, the prints in looking
at them are too monochromatic and too warm.
