Popped my cherry!
I just had my first professional portrait!
Elections for city officials are coming so my father managed to get me a couple of politicians to sit for portraits.
The first one was easy. He didn't mind shooting either BW or color so I did both in similar poses. I also only used the studio where the second one wants mostly color and at his house, with his family and all so it will be a tiny bit more involved.
Of course the photographs themselves are not artistically importand in any way, but they must come out well.
I managed to find a bunch of Fuji Reala 100 in 120 which is a feat in this day and age.
The only problem I faced really was the heat which has been unbearable for the last couple of days and my studio lacks A/C at present.
I was thinking of squeezing out of them three hundred euros each.
Here in Greece that seems like a good amount of money, but I figured out, they are politians, they need the photos...
Here's a couple of polaroids of my first guy.
(ignore the technical matters such as the visible strobe...)
