Jessie + Scott: Anniversary

Scott & Jessie emanate an artistic aura & display enthusiasm over any new opportunity they can experience together.  I felt at ease working with this eclectic young couple whose style & openness encouraged my own creativity.  With a curiosity to explore their hearts, I produced this story of images.

These photographs were captured using the digital Canon Mark III, the Mamiya M645, and the 35 mm Asahi Pentax K1000.  We used  a technique of slightly over exposing the film to produce a soft and beautiful focus with creamy skin tones.  The film used was Fuji Film Color Pro 400, and Kodak Pro Portra 400.

Lizzie: shot with medium format film

These photos were taken about a year ago of my good friends' daughter Lizzie.  I was searching through my car's glovebox today when I rediscovered them, and realized how special they are.  These images were captured using a vintage medium format camera called a Kiev, a Russian reproduction of the famous Hasselblad.  The Kiev is jokingly referred to as the "Hasselbladsky", because some features of this camera are unreliable.  Such as the way in which the film advances.  However, I believe this malfunction produced quite stunning images in which one frame blends into the next revealing the fun and adorable spirit of this child.
