Le Retour de Landru
Canon EOS 7D, 35mm, f/8, 1s, ISO 1000
Models: Aurélie & Guillaume
This week I’ll be posting photos from a couple of series I did recently with 1930s models. This first one is suitably creepy, the title refers to the infamous Landru, our French equivalent to Jack the Ripper (except he was caught and executed). The photo was shot with street lighting (hence the long exposure) with two great (and immobile) models. It was edited in Snapseed to accentuate the yellow night glare.

We had a few accessories for the Seedy Chicago ball shoot, including a period Voigtlander brought by Thomas. It gave us a number of good shots, of which this one is my favourite. This was processed in Lightroom with XeL 2.0 using my favourite preset by far, the Agfa Scala 200 emulation.
Three Monkeys in Top Hats
Canon 7D, 32mm, f/8, 1.3s, ISO 1000
Model: Guillaume Levillain
The session which I finished by shooting series of 3 monkeys with the models (see Three Monkeys in the Thirties) was really one of the best photo shoots I ever did, both in terms of having fun shooting and in terms of the results that came out of it. This photo of Guillaume was tricky because the three shots superimposed each other quite a bit. It forced me to do some very careful work in Photoshop, but I got there in the end. The photo was processed in Snapseed.
