Shooting A Magazine Editorial on Film – Image of the Week #429

Yes, it’s another film image picking up our Farmers Image Of The Week and I predict that it won’t be the last that we see this year. Film photography is enjoying a resurgence and we are seeing many more photographers embracing shooting on analogue cameras at weddings.

For some, it’s not just the latest trend but it’s always been a passion, like the wonderful Lisa Jane. As long as I’ve known her, she has shot with a variety of cameras including instant and Lomography. This sounds like a dream project for her and I suggest seeking out some more of the images to see how film can also be used in an editorial.

The styling is incredible and I love the model. These images absolutely lept out of my social media feed when I saw them and I’ll bet that they look stunning in print.

What Lisa-Jane said…

“Becky, from Most Curious & Pact Magazine, and I have been friends for years and she has always been a big supporter of my work. We have been talking about collaborating for a while but with The Most Curious taking up most of my time and the past few years of disruptions we just didn’t get a chance.

Thankfully last year, when Becky made the decision to create and publish Pact, she got in contact and asked if I was up for collaborating on the shoot that would launch and be a big feature in the Magazine. I of course jumped at the chance and we then started sending each other inspiration.

A lot of that inspiration was shot on film and so armed with three film cameras and a lonely old digital camera we worked to create some magic together, embracing the stillness of shooting medium format film alongside the beautifully imperfect polaroid.

Having learned photography on film, it has always been a big part of my life, whether it’s shooting film within my personal life or incorporating it into my professional work, so this was a dream come true.

The Tech Talk

“Having had my Mamiya 645 for years, I know the camera inside out, all its little quirks and so it makes shooting film in a professional setting a little easier. It also forces me to slow down and really pay attention to the scene.

Even with a knowledge of the film used and the camera, the light leaks on the side of the frame are just magic and a little reminder that the imperfect can make for a beautiful image.”
