This was a very quick test shoot with a new model, who ended up being fantastic to work with (her page is here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Erin-Elliott/173813232794164?fref=ts ).
The concept was simple, since this was a test shoot… bring out some film and some digital equipment, shoot it, develop film in the kitchen sink, add paprika for some grain and voila!
The story line (that this is a snippet from) is that she has been fighting her way to get home. She’s taken the bike from a soldier, using whatever clothes she could find to sneak around in (hence why the gloves, jacket, etc are all a little “oversized”). She’s stopped here for the time being, but hears a few noises in the distance and has her firearm drawn looking around.
Other shots were just for testing with the model, but since these photos seem to have had good responses with those who have Urals, I thought I’d post here as well (after all, a founder of Tumblr has one too!).
