[NSFW] Art nudes on Plus-X

by Callan

Back in 2010, we booked a shoot with Anita De Bauch, which resulted in some photos that I thought was some of the best work, artistically, that I’ve produced. Like this photograph, which now resides in our studio in a glorious 36″x24″ print.

When Anita told us she was dropping in at the tail-end of 2011, we couldn’t say no; in fact we booked her for two separate sessions. You might have seen some of the images from our Facebook page, from our outdoor session, but we have yet to release any from our first studio session. So here are the few shots I picked out from my 17 exposures, all made on the discontinued Kodak Plus-X film stored in an old Canon EOS-3 and rendered so very nicely by the Zeiss Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE. And in the post title hasn’t quite clued you in yet, this post is NSFW unless you have a really cool boss.

Having never used Plus-X until Kodak decided to stop producing it, I am pretty convinced about how well it works in a controlled setting, such as in a studio with traditional strobes. This is probably the film I’m looking for to produce that classical portrait look I so love; not that I’m not happy with Tri-X, but Plus-X seems to have the edge here. Maybe it’s time to stock up on Arista EDU 100 bulk rolls. It appears I’ve stumbled upon this combination by happy circumstance.

Technical stuff aside, I don’t think I can speak well enough about Anita. A wonderful person and a great model, whose enthusiasm and love for what she does shows through every minute, and is one of the most professional models we can hope to meet.  Thank you for making our lives easier :)

We are slowly catching up on our personal projects, and we’ll have more photos to show you soon. Happy humpday, everyone.

    Thanks Callan! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and the Cake team and I think we topped 2010 with 2011! I don’t usually like myself shot on film but I love these :D
