The beauty of natural light


I just love natural light, this was part of bridal lingerie story for Elegant Bride Magazine. Just gorgeous north light and lots of big reflectors and a fan.

Alternative Process

I'm getting geared up to start experimenting with alternative processes this summer with the plan to offer this to my portrait clients in the fall. I primarily want to specialize in Platinum / Palladium printing. I have a 4x5 camera I'm borrowing, (thanks John) and hope to get another Deardorff soon. I'll keep you posted.

I Love my 1.9

I love my 80mm 1.9, it's definitely the best 100.00 I've spent in a long, long time, shot wide open the depth of field or the lack of it is amazing.

I've been asked several times "does film still retain the film qualities once it's been scanned"

absolutely yes.
