The aim of this task was to gain further understanding of how Medium format cameras work and to test out potential lighting techniques within my proposal work.
This was a successful task. I managed to test 3 different lighting techniques which could be potential lighting solutions within my proposal work. I explored the position of the lights and the models in order to test my proposal idea fully so that i can evaluate and compare the work precisely.
I now feel much more confident with using a Medium Format Cameras and feel that i want to explore the use of them within my proposal.
I am waiting for the processed film in order to compare the results to the digital images.

I use front facing light source and two modelling lights in order to highlight the hair and face as i aim aiming to capture hair and make-up trends within a editorial beauty portrait style, I kept the apertures the same in order to compare precisely.

Update – 05/02/15
After just taking my film to be processed i have realsied i’ve made a huge mistake…
– i placed the film within the camera the wrong way round
– the film has unravelled and exposed within the box i was containing it in
However i now know to double check the film and which way you place it within the camera and also that when you take the film out there is a sticky label to wrap around the film allowing it to be tightly sealed so that it cannot be exposed.
Next time i use this film to re-shoot i will be double checking the way i insert the film and also double checking it is secure before placing it in the box to be processed.
The film is still be processed so that i can see the damage caused.
