I was going back through my archives looking at old film and decided to scan these medical images I took way back in 1998. At that time I had only been into photography for a scant 2 years but had already moved from a 35mm Minolta to a Nikon film camera to an RZ-67 medium format camera. I had also started using flash and had an old Norman flash system that I put to work.
I did a lot of IT work at this hospital and helped them with their medical imaging systems. They agreed to let me photograph their CT and MRI and even stood in for the photos. The RZ-67 was a beast of a camera. I had to figure out how to fire the flash in the room. I didn’t have a polaroid camera at the time so was unable to see how the flash would turn out before the shot. I simply had to meter the flash with my hand-held light meter, guess at my exposures, and hope for the best. I had to wait to get my film back from the lab to see how my images turned out.
