Brue Dropped by the Studio

I recently had Brue drop by for some portraits.  I wanted to try out a new backdrop I'd just painted so I tested the colors on digital as well as switching out to test some black and white film I'd never shot on. Here's what we turned out.

And of course, no roll of film comes back with out at least one treasure of an accident.

Jenny Dropped By The Studio

I've shot a handful of editorial assignments over the last few weeks but while they're all waiting to go to print, I thought I'd share some recent personal work. My #whenfriendsdropbythestudio project has been going strong and I wanted to share the latest installment. My friend Jenny dropped by last week and she was kind enough to sit through some different light set ups I wanted to try and wait patient as I went back and forth between cameras. 

I'm really glad I've been making the time for these personal shoots. I absolutely love working under the pressure and chaos that comes with doing commercial and editorial jobs, but it is so, so nice to relax and make portraits in a totally casual, intimate setting. 

Color images are digital while the black and white were shot with the Mamiya on a roll of HP5 400. Oh yeah, I've been having fun trying out different film lately, particularly black and white. It's been fun to experiment since I generally only shoot on Kodak Portra in the studio. 

Anyway, I'll have a lot of projects coming to share with you all so check back soon!
