Sorry for the tardy post. It’s been a busy month. I’ve shot track meets, baseball, softball, traipsed around the woods for hours taking photos of hikers for the the paper. I get pulled around to several different kinds of shoots at any given time. I have to be ready for whatever comes my way. I admit, sometimes I’m not as prepared as I’d like to be.
Here are a few photos from the past month.
I couldn’t help myself I had to get out my film cameras and shoot some analog. So here are a couple photos shot with my Mamiya RB67 and FP-100c instant film. I also took photos on 120mm and 35mm with my Minolta SRT 202. Those will be developed later, so stay tuned. I’m thinking I’ll have those ready sometime next week.
I got to work with a young aspiring model. I’m expanding my studio portrait portfolio and she needed some shots for her portfolio. DJ was pretty cool and overall I’m pleased with the results.
What I am really excited about are the the shots I haven’t developed yet. Aside from the normal digital photos I took, I also shot a few 120mm and 35mm photos which includes some double exposures.
I’m always on the lookout for more freelance work. Every penny counts. Therefore I’ve joined this website called Thumbtack.
I have fallen in love with portraits, so I’m hoping this brings me more portraiture assignments. It’s a pretty great site, not just for photographers, but also for carpenters, plumbers, writers, etc. If you need something done, check it out.
The idea behind the project is exploring the idea of attempting to follow your dreams. Many people were told that they could be anything they wanted to be and some take it to heart. They try to be rockers, wrestlers, cowboys etc. Some make it, many don’t. I’m getting with mostly younger folks just starting out and some older people who have either made it, exist in the middle somewhere or failed.
Here are some photos of some young punk rockers I’m working with.
Recently, I was asked to shoot a project by a group of students at my Alma Mater, the University of North Texas. It was a lot of fun and I don’t mind helping out. While I was there, I decided to shoot a few portraits. All of these were pretty quickly set up, but I think the results are pretty decent.
