Film Wedding Portrait

November 8, 2011 at 9:30 am

I do a sub­stan­tial 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.

 

Jack9 at Jack of the Wood

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!
