Inducing first...in the female corner... Aoife Svelk! annnnnnd in the male corner... Aoife Svelk! Wait what?!?!?! Did I just introduce the same person for the different corners? As a matter of Fact.. YES I DID! As you can tell from this shoot, the concept was easy. Take a female model and dress her up as a female for half of the shoot, and a male for the other half!

As far as technicalities go, the two main formats for this shoot was my Mamiya ZD for digital and my Minolta 7 loaded with HP5+ for film.  What I found to be fun about this shoot what the awesome visual contrast that resulted in dressing the same person as both sexes. Although you can tell each shot is of the same person, the simplicity of just changing her outfit really puts the model in a different mindset!

Alright, that is it for now! I must say though before I go, that this was a fun shoot and totally opened my creativity for more contrast photo concepts!
