I’m a bit behind on this blogging thing, so I’m going to try to catch up over the next few weeks.

SO many great kids this year.  But, it’s that way every year.

Beautiful, right!? And the background isn’t bad either 😉

I rarely post the yearbook formals, but this is just too good.

After I did her formals, we did the ones below.  I hope to do more like those below in the future.  If you’re interested, but sure to mention it.

 

We made the most of the almost 2 feet of snow we had a couple of weeks ago.

The Myers are neighbors….if I cross a creek, and climb several fences, I could walk to their house, but I didn’t do that.  I took the lazy way, the roads had been scraped reasonably well, so driving was a bit easier.

Beautiful location, right at their house.

I’m a little slow posting sometimes…..well, most of the time…..

Chelsea came by for updated head shots a few weeks ago.  Chelsea is Miss Madison 2013, in case you didn’t know 🙂

Here are a few…

And, not unusual for me these days, we shot a bit of black and white film, just for fun…..

If you follow on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been shooting a bit of film, mostly black and white, at portrait sessions for a while now, but I’ve never done a session completely on film, particularly black and white.  Film has such a different “look” than digital, and I get a little bored with the look of digital from time to time.  I really like the look and feel of these.  And I thank the Brockmans for putting up with me for a half hour or so last week so I can work out some of my crazy ideas.

For anyone interested, these were shot with a medium format Hasselblad on Tri-X 120 film, developed in HC-110b, and scanned on an Epson V600.  I do all the processing and scanning of black and white film at home, color film I have to send off to a lab.

If you’ve made it this far, and are interested in black and white film only session, click here and fill out this form to get in touch.  I’ll only have time to do a few before I get busy with high school seniors this fall, but we’ll see what we can work out.  And, I’m up for anything, family, couples, individuals, high school seniors, whatever.

The plan was to shoot outdoors, but the weather had other ideas.  Since it had been raining off and on in the afternoon, I assumed we’d be indoors….don’t want to ruin the dresses in wet grass, so I was prepared.  JUST as the girls got inside, the skies opened up.  Whew!  Good timing!  And I’m actually glad we shot indoors.  I think we ended up with more posing options.  All of these were taken with off-camera flash bounced into the wall/ceiling behind me.

Start them out smiling because that’s what they’re more comfortable with…..



….and then you get this when you ask them to not smile….  🙂















The “deer head” room was not in the plan…..but somehow we ended up there 🙂
