Camera-Phone, Steampunk Style

From my steampunk shoot with talented author Rebecca Diem who has just published The Stowaway Debutante, a fun steampunk read. I had the idea for the prop (the world’s oldest camera-phone? :-) ) some time ago, and this shoot was the perfect time to use it!

I had the pleasure of working with Sabrina, (the daughter of a theatre friend of mine) on Thursday. As someone with both dance and theatre experience, Sabrina was a natural when it came to posing and expression, and needed next to no instruction.

On Saturday I was again down at the Toronto Beaches, and among the films I was shooting with my Rolleiflex was Rollei IR 400, a film that is sensitive to light in the infrared portion of the spectrum. With a nearly opaque IR 720 filter, one gets an almost otherworldly view of an otherwise normal sunny day.
