I have a model in mind for the last shoot for the Afternoons in Fine Hotels series. After that, I have no idea what I’ll be doing with models going forward, if anything. I’m spending more time out and about shooting on a project that’s growing. It started out as a zine, but it may end up a book. Not sure yet. But thinking and shooting critically is something that I needed to do regardless. I’ll be posting a link to the end result this winter, no matter what that result turns out to be.
Far too often, we don’t give enough thought to what we shoot. I’ve been reconsidering everything. Film stock. Developer. Agitation. Lens choices. The benefits of a rangefinder versus a single lens reflex. And through careful consideration, I’m becoming a better shooter.
