Gisteren fotograferen. Morgen exposeren. Hoe oud nieuw kan worden.

Niñas de México

At last, I kicked off the project today! Spending the whole day in church, praying in Spanish (for me just pretending), making quick moves, kissing my thumb, watching people popping up and down… For sure, it’s not the same as in Belgium!

Below you can see the girl I photographed today in her special dress for her baptism. Mexicans love to be on the picture, especially when you tell a story about their culture. So I am lucky! I also took pictures of a “quinceañera”: the introduction of a girl, who turns 15 years, to the society. I love their princess’ look! 

I just hope my large format pictures go well… I am getting very stressed when I think about all the things that can go wrong (loading in my portable dark room, scanning in the airport, the lab, etc). So I try to relax myself by taking a digital back-up of every shot… The frames look more or less the same as the large format pictures, which I will have developed in some weeks. Please give feedback, because I am so focused right now on getting all the technical stuff right on location!
