Fleeting Seasons

One minute you are standing in a river shooting and enjoying the warm weather and late days and the next it is getting dark at 4:30 and all the leaves are rapidly falling off the trees.  Its times like this when I really need to force myself to carve out some time and get outside and shoot some images.

Now, with the recent (stupid) time change also comes earlier sunrises so, it was early up yesterday and out to some local woods with a model and assistant in tow with the promise of hot coffee once the shooting was done.

Even though the sun wasn’t as cooperative as I would have liked, I was still able to make some nice images.  Im waiting on the color film to come back but I have a few Type 55 exposures to show for it…

Now, I said the colors were changing and things were looking good out in the woods so, I am obligated to show this image of me looking like a homeless man with some beautiful light in the back.  Thanks goes to Brett for capturing me in such stunning detail looking like an idiot.  Thanks Brett.



So, get outside and go shoot something.  Do it.


Hot Summer day? Schedule a shoot in a river.

Its been quite toasty here in town lately – the perfect storm of hot and humid and downright  unpleasant to be working outside.  So, the answer to that is to schedule a shoot in a river for late afternoon and cool off while working.  Perfect.

Ive had images like these in my head for sometime now and Im glad that I had a small gap in my schedule to go out and shoot some personal work.  Im going to be waiting on the rest of the 4×5 to come back from the lab but for the mean time, here is a type 55 scan and a quick digital image (had to have something to play with).

As always, more to come…
