Over the last 3 months, my life has changed drastically. I went from strictly shooting photos, to small business consulting, to a brief stint working at Starbucks, and back to creative work. Currently I’m working part time with a company called Ioda Media doing art direction. The other half of the time, I’m doing some marketing gigs.
Anyway, here are some pictures from the last 3 months taken randomly on my Voigtländer Bessamatic.
And a few random portraits from the same roll…

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.
