Warrior Shoot

This Last Weekend I was Invited to another shoot! This time the theme was xena Warrior princess or something =) . The whole shoot was tons of fun! I mean come on, who could ask for more then to hang out with an awesome group of models and photographers on a saturday morning! The only thing I would have changed was the HEAT! Let me tell you, it was hot, muggy and humid, making it a miserable day to take photos =( Other than the heat and trying to keep the models from melting, the shoot was a success!

For the shoot I had 3 cameras with me, but to be honest I think I need to cut back on the gear that I take to photoshoots =). The 3 cameras were a Mamiya 645 pro, and the wonderful Leica M3, and an orbit 4x5.  I also shot on 3 films, Fuji 400H, HP5+, and Arcos 100, one roll each. Personally I think Portra does better then Fuji 400H but I've been saving those for special occasions. As far as the other two film I think they did well, HP5+ in the M3 and Arcos in the Mamiya.

The only mishap I had was accidentally shooting the Arcos 100 at 400 for the first 3 photos. Realizing my mistake I decided to shoot the rest of the roll at 200 and pushed it in development.
