A few weeks back myself, Cam Attree, Effie L’Amour and Miss Bunnypenny hit the road down to Byron Bay for an afternoon Art Nude roadtrip. This was actually Effie’s first shoot out in the landscape, and we were eager to show her a stunning location. We picked the beaches of Broken Head, which are completely different every single time we shoot there.
I also took the opportunity to try something a little different, which was shooting C41 colour film. In this case a pack of almost expired Portra 400. I also decided I would be developing this in my kitchen sink, as I’d had a C41 press kit handy for a while, and frankly I can’t bring myself to pay $25 a roll to have the film sent half way around the world, developed and scanned. The results? Really good.
A few images did not work as well as expected, which can be seen by the slightly off colour balance, or under exposure. But over all there are some great shots on this roll, and the unique look of the Hasselblad 500 CM combined with Portra 400 film gave these a really nice look!
