The week before last I was in Chicago: the city where I put together my first complete photo production as an amateur. It was about a decade ago I guess. And the shoot wasn't really for anything, but it sure was a lot of work. I had to secure this old historical society home. A friend of my aunt let me use completely vintage outfits. I found a model, makeup and hair. It was a busy day and a tight schedule.
I shot these with a Hasselbad 500c with slide film (maybe Fuji Astia). The first shot is natural light coming through a tree with a medium size reflector. The second shot I believe is an white umbrella on a Calumet Travelite to appear like window light.
