Editorial Fashion – Kodak Portra + Leica M3 …(Gina – Session 2)
Editorial Fashion – Kodak Portra Film + Leica M3
Model – Gina Underhill
Photographer – Matthew Osborne Photography (“Mr Leica”)
Editorial fashion photography spread using a 1950s Leica M3 camera, 35mm colour film and minimal post processing. Below are photos from a recent shoot with Coventry model Gina who joined me in London as part of a portrait photography workshop. I was demonstrating how easy it can be to get a nice photo with minimal equipment and just daylight. One camera, one lens. We had an amazing day with a great location, a beautiful model and even some brief winter sunshine!
Here are photos taken when Gina arrived to London ahead of the orange dress shoot (first post). Hair still pinned up from transit but I said leave it like that as a bit different. I chose the hat. Gina was less keen! I was also using my Rolleiflex SL66E 6×6 medium format film camera loaded with 120 Fuji Pro 400H so will share those soon.
