The way this portrait reflects who Nicole Gesmondi is goes beyond the camera, film, and processing (although all do reflect her very well).

This is a typical day that Nicole and I don't have a professional assignment. We are roaming around abandoned buildings with our toy cameras, searching for that perfect image. One of my perfect images of the day was just of her, looking ahead to the next scene that she wants to capture.

Thanks for the spotlight, Christopher!

Created using a 1960's original Diana toy camera with Свема Фото 65 (63 ГОСТ - 19 DIN - 63 ASA) Film that expired in 1989. Negative scanned using an Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipultion.

    You are an authentic maniac and radical of the plastic cameras and the expired films.
    Nice portrait!

    I love the effect of this cheap little Chinese camera :) I am using a Lensbaby to get something similar. It's wonderful to just get loose with images!

    Outstanding. Like a still from a late 50's noir movie.
