This is a highlight and favorite from a senior portrait shoot with Brooke, with whom I have worked before.
It isn’t usual that I take requests for post-processing, but she had in mind a specific lomography effect. With this in mind, the shoot was done outdoors in afternoon light with lots of browns, light greens and yellows for scenery and background.
Although I don’t see myself doing this processing every time, I do think that the effect — just like pretty much everything — can have its appropriate place when used in moderation and in the right place.

I do aÂ substantialÂ amount of event photography, often all of it digital. But I was recently able to shoot at frame of Portra 160 with the RZ67 in the midst of a wedding, and I was really pleased with the work.
It isn’t the most exciting wedding portrait. It was done somewhat spur of the moment and quickly, considering the normal speed at which I shoot film. But for me and my process, it was a moment where everything slowed down. Instead of capturing everyone and everything that was going on, I was able to focus on the camera, the viewfinder and the light meter and just relax. Like one of those movies where everything is sped-up, then the scene slows to a normal-speed, then the reel speeds up again.
My favorites from a concert at Jack of the Wood. It is a challenging place to shoot — dark, no great angles, low stage — but it can also afford a little intimacy with an unobtrusive camera. It was a great opportunity to test the new Fuji X100 — very good low-light capabilities and can be basically made as invisible as a film rangefinder. It was a great experience both with the shooting and the results!
