Spring has finally arrived! One of my favourite indications of this is being woken up by the sun and feeling the warm air floating in when you open the window. This week I was blessed with that every single morning! Such a great motivation to get out of bed. This week was supposed to be devoted to writing a midterm paper, but I must admit that anything concering university has been heavily neglected. I have spent every day outside in the sunshine, giving all my attention to photography. It’s been an incredible week, and I’m comptelly exhausted!
On Tuesday, I asked Mathias to tag along when I was shooting a few places for the Copenhagen Cityguide Silver.Spoon is doing for a parisian blog, and we ended up spending the whole afternoon outside, soaking up every little bit of sunshine. We found these beauties in Kongens Have and Mathias shot this wonderful picture.
Wednesday was spent assisting Preben on a photo shoot for an exhibition he is doing at The Boiler Room in April, and I got to have a little look at his Hasselblad camera. I gave myself quite a challenge when I asked him if I could borrow it for my shoot as I have never properly used it before, so being introduced to how everything works calmed my nerves a little (or maybe it was the asti we drank). Beautiful light, wonderful sunshine, great day!
I’m so taken with Preben’s photographs, and how it’s all done with film. Being in charge of the polaroids is quite a wonderful process, and it was my main function on the outdoor part of the shoot. The Hasselblad uses the kind of film where the chemicals are to be ripped off the actual picture when it’s done developing. Counting the developing time of five pictures at the same time is always more demanding than I remember it to be.
Then Thursday came and after my longest morning run in as long as I can remember (had to get that nervous tension out of my system), a big cup of coffee and cuddles, I met Rikke, my gorgeous model, and Preben at Frederiksberg Have. We had a little bubbly and something sweet before getting to work. I was way too excited and all over the place to remember to take some actual shots from the shoot, but I did remember to get all the pictures I had planned (all thanks to my control freak list of different shots).
Friday morning I delivered all the film rolls to get developed and spent the rest of the day editing the Paris blog pictures. I love the polaroids from the shoot on Thursday, and I wish that there way I way I could speed up the process of developing the film! Way too exited and nervous to see how everything turned out. Sundays are always great, but this one has been extra special. The past week has really been a glimpse of something I would like my life to look more like in the future. I feel so lucky to be able to work with what I love and have an opportunity to grow and get better at it. I hope you’re all having a great weekend and that you got a bit of sunshine the past week!
