magneticart From last week photo shoot with wonderful Elektra. This was the very first shot of the portraiture sitting, on instant film, something I usually do to double check lighting setup and exposure. There are several other images I am happy with from my shoot with Elektra but the visual tension in this one probably makes it a big favorite. #aeroektar #1944lens #f2.5lens 3w

magneticart From the series: people who inspire me. Who are they ? I hear you ask. Usually they are invisible people, humble artisans doing something in their own way and doing it very well. Usually they are not well known, they are not publicly celebrated, they don't get "likes" on their FB stream ( in fact they don't even have an internet connection), their "BS factor" is below zero.They are, as Musil used to say, "the heroes of the everyday"... Your watch stopped working ? Let me take a look at it..... There- it's working again- That'll be five dollars. Unfortunately this kind of people are a rapidly dying breed. 4mon

magneticart Straight out of my coffee- flavored darkroom,one of the first developed images, a lovely shot, in my opinion, from the latest portraiture sitting with model and actress extraordinaire @miszjez !! A real pleasure working with her ! Shot on 4x5 paper negative (3ASA), Tachihara camera, Fuji 250mm Soft Focus lens, developed in coffee. No Photoshop or retouching whatsoever was applied. Instead I achieved the soft look by using a portraiture lens (soft focus), an extremely low ASA rating (3), and a very careful illumination with roughly 2400 Watts per second strobe heads. The harsher is the light on the subject, the softer the glow on the highlights, with this type of lens. 4mon

magneticart @house.of.windows One of those rare occasions when a portraiture sitting becomes a true meeting of minds and souls. 3 ASA paper negative, 8x10 Deardorff camera, Gundlach Manhattan Triple Convertible Lens. I am definitely looking forward to working together again !!! 5mon
