I met ilenia, of chaperdonna hand-made clothes, a couple of months ago, and she asked me if I would be interested to shoot her upcoming fashion show. I told her, yes, as long as I do anything I like. she said, yes, do anything you like. I told her, okay, but have no expectations, I’m gonna shoot film, maybe nothing will come out of it. she said, okay, I get it, okay.
a week before the fashion show we also did a portrait session for fashionism.gr.
the event took place at salon de bricolage on 19/11/2013. there was absolutely no light in the “backstage” area, while the “show” area was lit with a couple of big roof spotlights.
I shot three films with the leica m4 and the voigtlander 28mm/f2 – kodak tri-x rated at 3200 ISO, double-developed with diafine. as a reference, I was shooting at f2 with shutter speeds of 1/4sec-1/8sec in the backstage area, and f2.8 & 1/30-1/60sec in the show area.
