It's Mosh from my upcoming book EXTEMPORE. When I set up a shot, it's basically me arranging lines and shapes within a fixed boundary. These lines then have to intersect with a human form who is placed within this complex geometry. In this case with Mosh, I was composing the image and noticed her doing some last minute adjustments to her outfit. It was in that split second that I decided to hit the shutter because I recognized it as both a compositionally interesting image and a candid look of what models have to do before getting ready to do some formal posing. This photo was taken with my Mamiya 645 at Erica McClean's ranch in 2014.

I AM still shooting with the same Mamiya. I just shot two rolls with it last week with a new model. Unfortunately the film quality isn't as good as it used to be - harder to get the tones I used to get. Less silver content. Big bummer.
Oh I know what you mean. Ilford is still making great stuff, but nowadays I've been shooting my "film" stuff on a 4x5 using glass plate negs - much better silver content, but ISO 2 is hard to deal with
