As the title suggests, this photo was taken on student grade black and white film. Produced by the same company that is famous for Ilford products, Harmon Technology created this film as an affordable option. And at $2.50 a roll, I can’t complain. With good light, the film looks great. Here’s one of my dog Tucker.

As part of my ongoing Free Portrait Project, I took a photo of a local musician. This is Sean. He specializes in mashups & digital sampling.

The other day I had to shoot 6 photographs to finish a roll of film that I had loaded months earlier. Unfortunately this happens all to often when I start using a new camera. So I called up a friend of mine and walked around her neighborhood. It was a cloudy day, so the Kodak Portra 160 produced a pretty flat image, but the grain is so smooth. I need to use this camera more. The quality always impresses me. Here’s a fun picture from the 6.
Shot on a Mamiya 645E.

A few days ago I read a blog post about the Brenizer Method. It’s a strange portrait technique where you take multiple pictures of your subject and stich them together. The camera settings and focus remain the same. Then simply do a photomerge in Photoshop, as if you were going to make a panorama. The results generally turn out as a wide-angle shot with extremely shallow depth of field.
This is my first attempt, and it doesn’t really do the effect justice. I’ll keep trying and get one up soon.

Here is my favorite portrait of Jeffree Newman from the shoot for Koyote. I shot this on a Mamiya 645E medium format camera loaded with film that expired 12 years ago. I had the film cross processed and then scanned the negatives. No editing has been done.
Just look at those eyes…
