Quite a few familiar faces were present - 80 photographers in total - and Jess Cumbie and I got to collab again in a roundabout, semi-unfortunate kinda way! As she was snapping her first test shots, the mirror mechanism inside the body of her 5D fell apart. Fortunately she's able to get it repaired for only $30, but she was cameraless the rest of the evening except shooting a little bit with her medium format camera. The rest of the night she pretty much helped me light, which was a huge help for a lot of my shots! :)
I spent all day developing new processes in LightRoom from these photos so some of them have a new look and feel.
Thank you to the models for being so patient with all of us. I'll give credit where credit is due just as soon as I find out all your names!
We even had a canine model present! I was very excited over the fact that this dog was so well-behaved because my mom's Boston terrier is the spawn of satan. ;)
I brought my Mamiya out for the shoot! At the time these shots were taken of Lauren holding the camera, I had a roll of black and white in it. :) Still have to finish off the roll, so it will be a little bit, but I can't wait to see what (if anything) comes out of it...
A new "tin-type" process I recently developed:
Yes, I'm super-indecisive:
Jess and I really got to play with lighting at the fire station:
I also made a deal with myself NOT to use any textures on anything this time. Not washing my hands clean of them forever, but cleaning up for a little (maybe temporary) change...
