The studio where we were filming was an old empty hangar which was only heated in a couple of areas. While the crew were wearing huge Sorel boots and massive down filled parkas, the performers were sporting costumes of winter wear from the depression era.
I was very excited to find out that I would have an opportunity to have my own photo shoot with Isabella for the poster art. I can't say I have ever met an actress that was so involved with the creative process during the shoot. We collaborated about ideas and after we had shot those ideas, she had come up with many more! It was such a delight!
I used one of the (heated) sets as my studio and surrounded Isabella with soft light to flatter her classic features. I was shooting with good old fashioned film stock back in 2003. A large negative is necessary for printing large posters so I shot with a medium format Hasselblad camera and my film of choice; black and white Kodak TMax 100.
