Sneaky Scan

Processed one of the 120 films I shot a few weeks ago, I was having problems with the film back and it turns out that the back is faulty, but apparently parts for the Bronica are not made anymore. The spacing was all over the place and there are some interesting double exposures. Could not resist doing a couple quick scans, but these negatives where taken for hand printing in a few weeks.

Can't wait to pick up the rest next week and I will share some more if any of the images come out.

My favourite double exposure, to me it looks like an opposite American Flag with the stars fallen off. I like the way the flowers flow with her arm and on to the table.

Portrait Appeal

Summer is such a busy time and I would love to post more, as at the moment, it looks like I'm not doing much. Last week was a fantastic week for portraits and I was shooting with a Bronica, not got the results back yet, but I will share with you a couple of my favorite digital pictures. 

First this picture is two sisters by the fire. Max the sister on the right is one of my regular people to photograph and can be seen in many of my projects. My best friends mother, who is a friend in her own right has been a great artistic mentor. When going through an artists block with my work, she gave me a copy of 'The Artists Way' and although I'm still on chapter two has been a great tool and I recommend it to anyone.

The next picture is my friend Neil who was visiting from Eugene.

Thought it was nice to put a snap of the view he was looking at.

The next stop off was to meet another Jen, whom I met in Mexico. She has rediscovered her love of painting and creative expression after being in the corporate world for many years. Jen commissioned me to take a portrait of a young girl on holiday with her Grandad as she felt inspired to paint her picture. Taralynn's portrait is very beautiful and Jen would like some for photos for inspiration, so I will be creating some very special images over the next few months and hopefully this weekend at the solstice, so hope to share the results with you.
