This shot is still a favourite of mine. It was shot with a 4x5 film view camera. Large format is so slow, but so satisfying! What makes it even more cool to me is the texture of the tones due to the expired Polaroid film which was used here. I used a bit of tilt-shift - worked out just right in my mind. Sometimes I overdue it not knowing exactly how it will come out on film while looking at the ground glass. Also of note, this classic shot is window lit - no strobes at all. I prefer that if possible.
