I recently photographed Jessica, with the goal being a simple model portfolio shoot. No hair and makeup artists like I normally do, just casual wardrobe on the beach. Simple and fun. And I really love the results!

The color images were shot on my Mamiya 645AF, with either my 80mm f/2.8 or my 150mm f/3.5 lens. The black and white images were shot using my Bronica SQ-Am, with Ilford HP5 film that was exposed and processed at ISO 1600 (i.e. pushed two stops). I did this strictly for the grain and contrast that comes from pushing the film, since I obviously had plenty of light at the beach!
