Grace reached out to me on Instagram to see if I was open to collaborating on a project together…how could I say no? We organised a sunrise shoot, and unfortunately it was really overcast and a little rainy, but we pushed on.

Shot a Leica M6, shooting HP5 and Kodak Portra, both at 800.

Still not a huge fan of the HP5 for 35mm portrait/fashion shoots, and this will probably be the last time I use it…I find myself cutting shots because I don’t like how the grain appears in the image, especially on tanned skin. Might switch over to Tmax400 for portraits.

Love the look of Portra 800, pity its so expensive, but hey, gotta spend money on something.

This was the first shoot I used my Voigtlander 50mm Nokton 1.5, and I’m a big fan. Any softness in the shots was due to me having to slow the shutter speed right down.
