Slam Poets

Well.. I finished up the alta job and there has been a lot of powder skiing since then. I have been a total slacker on the blog front, but today I have a little something to post about. I shot a "slam poet" for city weekly last week and I was so impressed with the emotions in his face I had to make a portrait series of several other slam poets. I shot in total 9 poets and after the first edit I have 105 portraits.. more editing to come sadly. i shot with 5d mk II f/1.7 1/60 with a 1000W continuous light against a black photog cloth.

I threw up 4 images for you. these are gonna look different in the portfolio later on..

alta portrait series

well the shoot up at alta went very well. We got 11 portraits all in about 2 hours tops.

I put up a few of the portraits I had time to scan in.. these were super low res still in plastic scans.

I always love and image like this. 3 opened and loaded boxes of tri-x. Im shooting 15 portraits on my deardorff 8x10 tuesday and wednesday of this week for alta ski resorts 70th anniversary season. The folks at alta have been very awesome to me and were so kind as to commission me to do some work for them.. I am excited about it. Excited that people still love film photography. the allure and the beauty of connecting with a subject and the finished product.

today I had 10 models over for TFCD work for my book.. I shot some on digital and some with my RB series D graflex camera. I think i am in love with it.. (since i have no girlfriend I might as well name my camera bertha and love it!!) i shot 20 sheets of tech pan and VPS and I am really excited to see the results. I have a very specific retouching idea in mind for these images and I am really excited to see the results. all in all it was a fun day and I met some cool local salt lake people!
