A handsome young man, Joey had a little portrait session a few weeks back and these were some of my favorite from the shoot. He looks good as a little businessman!
A longtime friend of the family, Harry was in need of a new headshot and this was one of those candid captures that you get in between posing. This shot reminds me of the image of Winston Churchill by Yousuf Karsh when he just yanked the cigar from his mouth and captured that astonishing portrait. That story always makes me laugh, and reminds me how much I have to learn. I don’t understand how the masters got sooo good at what they did, the lighting techniques and knowledge of photographic processes. We have unlimited resources with global connections and I still can’t take in all the information I want. I’m overwhelmed with all that I don’t know. Makes my head spin and my imagination race. Someone should feel my heartbeat.
One of my favorite stops along my drive from California to Texas. It’s in Junction when i change highways and I always stop to check out this old barn. I am borrowing two old cameras from Christina’s mum and shot this with a folding Kodak Jiffy and a modified roll of 120 film. Apparently there are some very serious light leaks…
We just got back from a trip to Tamarac Ski Resort in Idaho. My camera was in the shop so all I had with me was my trusty Holga. It was a beautiful resort with a lot of hidden treasures. The resort went bankrupt and is currently being run by the Home Owner’s Association, and is pleasantly populated by about 150 residents. The lines are non existent and the skiing is fantastic.
