LomoChrome Color '92 Studio Portraiture with Christine Turek

Since its launch last year, LomoChrome Color '92 has proved to work well in any situation, whether it be a rainy day on the city streets or shooting portraits indoors. Following up on her last feature, we were excited to see Christine Turek put Color '92 to use in her studio work, and the results did not disappoint!

Without further ado, let's hear from Christine and check out her latest photos!

Hi Christine, welcome back to Lomography Magazine! Can you please re-introduce yourself to our community?

Hi! My name is Christine Turek, I'm a photographer based in Montreal, Canada. I've been doing photography for about 25 years, and loving every minute of it!

What were your first impressions of LomoChrome Color '92 ?

I've used many other Lomography films and this was my first time trying the Color '92. I thought it was very sharp, the detail is really nice, and the colour is more muted compared to the Lomo 400 or 800. I really enjoyed trying something new!

How do you think LomoChrome Color '92 performed in a studio setting?

I liked trying it out in the studio, it really brought out the tones I wanted in Honey, my model. In the future I will definitely try it in an outdoor setting.

Why do you love medium format?

I just love the quality and detail of medium format. It's large enough to give amazing detail, but small enough for ease of use and even to travel with. When I shoot outdoors I like to be able to change locations and with medium format I can, while still retaining the quality I love.

You mainly shoot portraits. What are some of the techniques you use to get the best out of your models?

I think I just make the models really comfortable, I put them at ease. I shoot with a lot of new-face models, models that are just starting out, so sometimes they are a little nervous. Making them feel comfortable is really how I get the best out of them.

Do you have advice for anyone who may be interested in portrait photography?

I think learning about lighting, whether natural light or studio light, is very important. Paying attention to lighting and putting your subject at ease.

Do you have any upcoming projects that you'd like to share with our community?

I started a magazine, Iconic Artist Magazine, a few years ago with a friend and fellow photographer, Jonathan Lorilla, who is based in Milan, Italy. We have a photography exhibit in May in Paris, along with Image Nation, and then another one at the end of September in Milan, which I'm planning on attending, so I'm very much looking forward to that!

Thanks Christine for sharing! If you'd like to keep in touch with her work, you can find her on Instagram.
