Eastern State Penitentiary - Holga Part 2, Bridal Session
As promised, now that I have triumphed over my scanner, I have more of my Holga images to share from my recent photo trip to Eastern State Penitentiary in Philly. These photos reflect what one can expect from my Holga Bridal sessions / Trash the Dress sessions... because this particular model was wearing a wedding dress! Regardless of what my photo subjects are wearing, I approach the shoot the same way - with the goal to make really cool, funky, otherworldly, and in general kick-butt images!
Lots of people ask me how I make these images. Lots and lots of practice pretty much sums it up! I do not use Photoshop - these are shot on film and printed and toned in the darkroom (with chemicals!), and are not manipulated in any way other than the occasional burn and dodge.
This is not all... believe it or not, I have even MORE images from this photo shoot to share. Be on the lookout for Eastern State Penitentiary - Holga Part 3!
