Belinda #2

So, moving on from our last shoot below, a few months later Belinda made the decision to go short. Given that her flaming red hair was so much a part of her identity, it was a big move and she waited sometime before she decided to let images of her new do appear in public.

For this shoot we wanted to reference the Twiggy look with cropped hair and big eyes. This time we decided to take more of a fashion angle and just have a bit of fun. So one Saturday afternoon in beautiful April we got together at the Brisbane State Library and Kurilpa Bridge, two of my favourite locations to photograph as I love working within the architecture. We also had the help of the wonderful Bea Blackmore who looked after the makeup and styling.

We had a lot of fun and I have to say, I love Belinda's hair.

These images were taken on Tri X 120mm using  a Mamiya 645, along with Ilford Delta 400 and Portra 800 on the Nikon F6. Processing and scanning was done by Richard Photo Lab who make film look divine.
