Exceptional Photo!!

Behind The Lens

Location
The picture is taken in my hometown Leeuwarden, in the very north of the Netherlands. It was not a real studio set up but we made some pre-arrangements with light etc in an empty school building.
Time
Just in the afternoon with some diffuse incoming light as it was cloudy (as often in Holland ;-) )
Lighting
I placed some spread lamps around the set-up but no flash or anything else. The picture was made in the pre-digital era so the experience told me with such light I had to use such diafragma etc. I like incandescent light so I aimed at that.
Equipment
This picture was made with a Bronica 4.5/6 camera and a 100 m lens. Quite heavy gear so it was placed on a sturdy tripod. The man was a professional actor of a local theatre group and renowed in this area.
Inspiration
I made some portraits for publicity of some of the members of the company but this man was the most easy in front of a camera. He knew you always have to exaggerate just a bit to get what one wants.
Editing
It was made with a 400asa film of Ilford- 4,5 x 6 and developed in Kodah Hc110- I always liked that combination for its contrast and touch of grain. Although I am very much more pleased with the modern digital gear.
In my camera bag
Nowadays I like the Nikon D850 with a wide angle (16-35 or 20 mm) or small tele 105/1.4.
Feedback
As it was on film- just do what you think you have to do-
