Well, it has gotten warmer and although my time is as limited as usual I am in a creative mood and very happy that I was finally able to do the long planned shoot with Tom Klein [klick HERE].
We had to postpone the shoot due to a rather funny injury of mine - I hit my forehead quite hard on my sewing table and had to walk around with a very visible bump and a blister for about two weeks. At least it was perfectly symmetrical...
Tom flew over from Trier and brought an old analogue camera with him, a Hasselblad 500c/m and several Kodak Portra 800 films. He specialises in analogue photography and even does wetplates!
We went full risk going analogue with only a few smartphone snaps for me to check the dress - I prefer to have an assistant to check my dress during the shoot, but it can be done alone. It turned out well, I had a hard time choosing the pictures.
There are many things I would do differently now, but that's how costuming works and I am always happy to learn. The collar is way to large for example and the sleeves - no, we won't talk about the sleeves, I loathe sleeves!
At the festival it was super-super-hot, this time it was rather chilly although we were very lucky with the weather. It was a very nice saturday in early spring, and with the right undergarments I wasn't cold. Okay, I have to admit I wore a modern XXL-cashmere-sweater beneath the blouse ;) It served both as a warm layer and as necessary padding, since I lost a bit of weight recently.
By the way - drop me a note if you are interested in doing a photoshoot with me!
