We really felt like featuring client Katja Scherle today. We’ve been working with her for quite some time and we’ve seen her shape her style and improve a whole lot.
She’s never been shy about getting the look she wanted out of her film. She’s asked us all kind of questions and really worked with us to get a personal look.
We thought this particular session was specially worth showing since she shot another incredibly talented client of ours, Jeanie Micheel.
In Katja’s own words:
Funny how life is sometimes. Two years ago I discovered Jeanie Micheel’s Facebook page and admired her beautiful images. Now I’m sharing beautiful images of her I shot myself. How did this happen? About six months ago we got to chatting about film on the internet. Four months ago we met for a mentoring session that still resonates with me. And before that Jeanie had asked me to take her picture. She wanted to do a session that represented her love for nature, her independent spirit, her boho chic style – and of course her love for film. And somehow I came into the equation. I was honoured but of course there was some pressure. Pressure only by myself on myself – Jeanie herself was incredibly relaxed and trusting. So her, our awesome make up Artist Angélique, my Contax and I met. And it was a beautiful afternoon we all enjoyed very much (yes, the Contax too, I asked her).
So yeah, for the geek out there Katja shot the Contax 645 and Fuji 400H (overexposed 2 to 3 stops) for color and Kodak Tmax 100 for black and white.
