Sirgi in Kadriorg

Sirgi was visiting Tallinn and we decided to use the sunny evening to do a little photoshoot in Kadriorg. I felt like going with film this time as it had been a long time since I shot on film. I chose Portra 400 (I had it at home – a lower ISO would have been better for the sunny weather) and used my trusty Olympus OM-1 with a 50 mm f1.8 lens. Eva came and helped with many of the poses and a reflector.

Working with analog photography is so much more difficult than digital. I feel like I am making a lot of progress taking pictures overall. Going back to film is a real slap in the face – you have still much to learn son. I was struggling with framing because of my glasses and more than once forgot to check the exposure meter. Even my focus was off on a few shots. I am so used to automatic exposure and a large LCD screen.

Regardless, Sirgi was a great model and we did still get some lovely shots. I especially love the final right one.
