yegphoto I didn't get to developing my backlogged negatives this evening, so instead here's a behind the scenes (or rather under the jacket) view of the back of the camera that we've been using. @shippelt took it when he was preparing to make my portrait.

It takes a while to get used to seeing the world upside down and flipped left-to-right, but that helps with envisioning the photograph as a composition of lines and colour and texture, rather than faces and bricks and clothing. The surreal image and the sensory barrier of a leather jacket over my head help to distance myself from the subject and the bustle of a busy sidewalk only a couple feet away, and they create a space wherein I can concentrate on the task at hand - adjusting the camera to accommodate the subject's height, making minor tweaks to the fine-focus, and considering what kind of expression I might be able to draw out.
It only lasts a moment.

gabster_spoon #tbt to two weeks ago. I took this photo for my documentary photography class. My professor is absolutely adorable n the bestest. He said, "Some really awesome images here--the one of the kids just kills me. Where and how did you find that? If you don't know them then I congratulate you on getting the image and putting yourself out there to get it--it's brave to approach teenagers!" These kids were the sweetest, all freshman at Arcata High and laughing candidly. Couldn't help but relish in their innocence #notiphone #teenagers #nostalgic #makemoreportraits #strangerportrait 2d

jrurie Another cross-post from @yegphoto :

Continuing on with colour film and Jasper Ave, here's a more traditional portrait.
I talked to Ian and Richard for a bit about what I was up to on the street corner with a huge camera on a tripod, and they agreed to have a portrait taken. Those are some pretty serious faces, gentlemen!

Ian requested that I Photoshop in some cute girls; sorry mate, an accidental double exposure is the only way that would happen, and it looks like it wasn't your lucky day!

Thank you both for stopping to have your portrait made.

Keeping with the colour theme, let's move from Whyte Avenue to Jasper Ave.
Working with large format film requires constant attention to detail, and most mistakes will leave you with no photo - there are a few pictures that I've taken for this project which were unexposed or completely wiped out by technical errors.
This, however, was not one of those times. Every now and again Serendipity lends a helping hand and turns an error into something awesome. I'll be trying some intentional double exposures in the future.
Thank you Robbie and Eva for stopping to contribute to the @yegphoto project, and my apologies for smooshing your faces together.

Let's switch to colour for a little while, and step away from those wonderful bricks.
This is Erin and Craig. They were in town for the afternoon, looking for trouble. They found it when @shippelt convinced them to pose for us, and took a medium format black and white shot of them. They were so awesome that I had to pull out one of the few remaining Kodak E100SW sheets and take a second picture.
Thanks for stopping for a portrait :-)
