Yelena: Holga Style

Posted in 120mm, Film, Holga, Photography, Portraiture by daybf on February 27, 2013

I took photos of my friend Yelena quite awhile ago, but I recently uncovered these Holga photos from the same shoot. We went to Arana Gulch in Santa Cruz for a nice open field to take portraits in. I like how long it takes me to finish and develop rolls of film, because every roll ends up being a surprise! Check out the original photoshoot here.

Yelena is a super talented designer, so check out her graphic design and illustration work.

The “you don’t say…” look:

Yelena’s newest look: ravishing redhead

Posted in Photography, Portraiture by daybf on February 15, 2011

My good friend Yelena, who you saw in my post Holga: roll 3, part 1, came to town and I took pictures of her in Arana Gulch. She recently died her hair red and cut it shorter, so it was time for new photos! The weather was sunny with clouds, so the sun kept disappearing and reappearing, but we made it work. It was a fun and simple shoot. There were tons of people out walking their dogs, and a few particularly liked Yelena and–oddly enough–completely ignored me.

Yelena is an extremely talented designer and all-around artist. Definitely check out her design portfolio and blog.

Enjoy!

I always find the need to get some silly pictures:
Yelena has these awesome Nike high-tops that deserved some attention:
