Deal with the Devil
Canon A2, Lensbaby, Ilford FP4+
Back in 2010 I bought a Lensbaby. I was in love with the selective focus and the creamy bokeh… and wasted so many shots because of it. I took me a long time to recognize and admit that selective focus is pointless in most scenes. But a few years ago, I was due to take some family portraits and decided to shoot film portraits with the Lensbaby… and loved the results. Last summer I took a lot of shots of various friends and family, four rolls of Ilford 4+ in all. We had a few accessories during one of those sessions, and Clément’s dark skin, with the top hat and the grin made for a positively devilish photo.
