Making of “Decadence” using a 50 year old 8x10 camera by Tyler Shields
This series “Decadence” is the latest series by Tyler Shields. Set in the court of Marie Antoinette, the series was shot in the summer of 2015 and was shot using a 50 year old 8 by 10 camera as well as various Hasselblad cameras. After their marriage, Louis XVI entrusted Marie with the task of entertaining the court.
Let them Dance from my new series Decadence which is set in the court of Marie Antoinette, This is an era I have been interested in my whole life so to be able to create my version of it was a truly incredible experience, I shot most of this series on a 50 year old 8 by 10 camera which was something I had never done but always wanted to try, and that was the goal with this series to push my self to try something new which is very important for anyone who wants to create never settle never rest on what you have done never give up and never forget that your imagination can only run wild if you let it! Thank you to all the amazing people who helped me make this series happen!

Decadence is set in Tuileries Palace in 1667 and The Palace of Versailles 1672. I wanted to give my version of an inside look into what I imagine it would be like if you were able to take a photograph of The Court of The Palace of Versailles and Tuileries Palace an intimate look inside one of the most fascinating times in history.
