I meet with a group of photographers each month who are primarily interested in large format and alternative process photography.

Recently we had a chance to use some rather nice studio flash equipment so one of the women brought her daughter for us to use as a model. I decided to use my Certo Six camera (a medium format “folder” made in East Germany sometime after WWII), and not wanting to take a straightforward image, asked the model to move her head back and forth.

The exposure time was one second, and the shutter opened as her head was turned to my left, and closed just as the flash went off as her head had turned to my right. I did a series of these images, but liked this one because the left eye lined up with the right eye.
