Mae in the lounge - 1998. 

This image is of my oldest daughter Mae when she was 9 months old in 1998. It was taken at my brother in-law's house in Suffolk which was being refurbished.

I used my trusty roll-film camera (a Bronica ETRS with 40mm lens), Fuji Velvia transparency film and natural window light. I remember setting up the shot as a kind of still-life, then at some point Mae walked in and climbed on the sofa.

22 years later I am very pleased with how the image has scanned, it looks so clean and sharp. In some ways better than the original Cibachrome print which was on pearl-finish paper that Ilford did for a while.
