Collective / Ben Hodges / Event Promo Shoot // “Vintage Summer”
I shot this series of images for a young adults conference - the idea was to create a photo narrative based on the themes of; community, fun and contemporary fashion trends - set in the context of a summer hangout.

Stunning. What was the camera/lens?

How did you create the ‘hazy’ summer feel?!

Thanks Chris, the camera was a Canon 50D and the lens combo’s were; 24-70mm f2.8, 16-35mm f2.8, 50mm f1.8 I think.
The look was created by shooting through a plastic cd case - the refractions in the light and the thickness of the plastic give a glow that accentuates areas of intense light.

That’s genius. I’ve got some similar effects by breathing on the lens. But this seems much more logical. good work!
