On a break between setups, I quickly stole my onscreen love interest away from the studio, sat her on the steps of her trailer, adjusted my focus, snapped this shot, and wrestled with the ejected photograph to try to keep it from the sunlight which had already killed nearly a whole pack of film. I resisted the impatient urge to check the image, opting instead to leave it face down in the greenroom while we broke for lunch. Upon returning an hour later, I was expecting to find another blown out over-exposed failure, so imagine my joy when I turned this over and saw it for the first time - I think this is one of the best pictures I've ever taken.

    I can't beleive you got this shot out of a pack of first flush. It's brilliant.

    @slumbrnghok, it was the only good shot out of four packs. And unfortunately the original image has now turned blue.

    That makes it even better then. Apparently the latest Impossible stock is REALLY good. Much better colouration and sharper final image. I really like this photograph.
