This picture was taken recently for the degree course in Photography that I have not long started.


It was taken on a Pentax MZ5, using available light in a local theatres restaurant, out of hours at a writers meeting that I go to. It was taken using Ilford XP2 chromogenic film, with a 28 - 70 zoom, with the aperture wide open. The film was processed and printed as enprints at a local Jessops store and then printed by me in the darkroom on Ilford RC MG paper, Pearl surface, using Ilford chemicals at 20 degrees C.


A small bit of spotting had to be done, but I just CANíT seem to get the ink to be the right colour!?! I have tried all the good brands and the BLACK ink always seems to come out as blue when I use it for spotting?!?!?


I printed a 10 x8 copy of it for the lady in the picture but I liked it so much, I also printed her a 16 x 12 copy as well. She was extremely chuffed with them and said that it was one of the best photos ever taken of her. So in the end I was very chuffed as well! :-)

When I looked at this, I felt that this represented how she saw herself. She seems to be a person who is comfortable with how she looks and who she is and you captured this for her


Well done


Mike

Thanks for the comments Mike and I think that you are spot on.


As I've said in the intro, '[the lady in the picture] was extremely chuffed with [the photos that I gave to her] and said that [they were some] of the best photos ever taken of her.'


I too feel she's very comfortable in her skin and this I think comes across.
