A friend from Film school and a photographer as well, Eoin asked me to take some photos of him for him one day. We took about three rolls of film, one black and white and two colour. I think both of us were quite happy with the results and as many of them were nudes Eoin took charge of the negatives. Okay he paid for the film as well if I remember rightly. Still I’d like to get my hands on the negs again after I purchase a scanner.
This was the only close up (I have cropped it as the focal length was a bit wide for this type of shot) and I love the pore clear focus, something I have loved in many portraits by the greats such as Avedon, Jean Loup Sieff, Snowden, Helmut Newton, Annie Leibovitz or Herb Ritts. Along way to go to those dizzy heights but at least we have some pores.
