Posted on Mar 21, 2014 in education, film, portraits

With the new studio, my ongoing series “Girls on Film” continues. This time we shot a brief series of studio headshots both in digital capture, plus a set with the 4×5 large format camera on b&w negative, printed on 16×20 silver gelatin in the darkroom (the film prints are featured here). The large format photographs were shot ...

Breaking in the new studio

Posted on Mar 3, 2014 in gallery, portraits

It’s been a hectic few weeks as we moved the studio into the new space, and although it’s directly across the street, it’s definitely not a lateral move.
