Face lift photos for Hearst Magazines

I shot these phots on a Linhof 5×4 plate camera for Hearst Magazines – it was a story about the different aspects of plastic surgery. These are two of the images from the selection I shot. It was a complex shot as the girl had to stay very still as we reloaded the plates into the camera. After about 6 shots, without a polaroid and with my head underneath the black cloth at the back of the camera I new I had the shot. At the time I was sweating like a farm animal with nervous stress as I hadn’t used a plate camera very often. I was desperately hoping everything would turn out okay!
