Back to Moab

Nude, Utah, 2018

I went away for a few days this past weekend to once again attend The Desert Adventure art nude photo outing in the vicinity of Moab, Utah.   I had gone last year and I enjoyed it, so I thought I’d go back again.
The event is planned by model Monique (with her outfitter/outdoor specialist partner, John), and for this session, her modeling partner was Eva Luna, who I had not worked with previously – though now I am happy to say that I have.
Unfortunately, my primary camera – the Pentax 67 that I have carried around the world with me for over 20 years – broke down about halfway through the weekend, with the mirror getting stuck in the up position.   Fortunately, I have a good Fuji 6×7 rangefinder camera as my backup, and though it’s not as versatile as my Pentax system, having only a fixed, non-changeable lens, I do believe that I got some good photos with it, as well.  (Now let’s hope that I can get the Pentax fixed before I need to use it again.)
While I have begun to have my film from this weekend developed, the truth is that I still have a lot of last year’s film to scan, as I underwent knee surgery shortly after last year’s event and got sidetracked because of that.  Hopefully I’ll have time to scan photos from both this year and last, but for now, here’s a photo that I recently scanned from last year, featuring Monique and that event’s other model, Celina.
