Jenna (One-Roll Shoot #2)

This is the second in a series of “one roll shoots” I’ve been doing. Rather than putting together a big fashion-shoot production, with hair, makeup, wardrobe personnel etc, I wanted to do something simple. One model (who does her own hair/makeup/wardrobe), and one roll of black and white film. In this case I decided to shoot medium format, which has fewer shots per roll, so I shot two rolls (hey it’s my project, I can cheat if I want to). So just 32 exposures total to make something amazing. And with Jenna’s help, that’s what happened!

I used my Mamiya 645AF with 80mm f/2.8 lens, one roll of Kodak Tri-X and one roll of Ilford HP5.

  1. I like the idea of a one roll shoot. Did you alternate films throughout the whole shoot or switch to the second roll after the first ran out? I’m trying to work out which films were used in these shots. The bottom left image (sitting on the fence) is especially nice.

  2. Thanks Nasir! I didn’t alternate, I just used up the one roll and then moved to the other. The HP5 was for the beach scenes and the Tri-X was on land. I think. 🙂
