Grey Street

"Black & white is the new black & white. Film."

Keeping it simple, a vintage camera, lenses to suit, 2 rolls of film. Cinestill bwXX 200 and Kodak Tri-x 400. Styled and inspired by Ruby Reginato and Amber Rose Stewart, set amongst slightly disused warehouses in Virginia Brisbane.  With a sort of cinematic approach, an emphasis on light and lines. So mood. Much mono tone.

Going for a relaxed / casual approach, working with both of the girls in different parts of the yard in the mid afternoon until sunset. A number of fashion items, mixed and matched in a thoughtful way. The sun being the only source of light, working with different shadows and tones, High and low key photographs.

Ruby, on Cinestill bwXX. At 200.

Amber on Kodak Tri-x 400. With the afternoon setting sun, making some beautiful silhouettes and some softer grey tones. 

It's all about the light, considering it's position and how I can sculpt each portrait in a different way. Using a 70-210mm lens for most of the shooting, allowing for nice background dropout. When the light started to dim, the 50mm f/1.4 was perfect.

High key ~ very little grey tones.
Low key ~ with lots of grey variation.
