Personal Connection

My goal is always the same: to create a photograph that reminds others of the man or woman you have come to be.

The Medium

In most sessions I will take fifteen frames on color reversal film . This medium is unusual, but it has a tonal response that is lively and exactly matches my effort to create a personal connection through a photograph.

First Location ( frames 1-15 )

The first session should be about 45 minutes in length. If we are prepared, every shot will count and we can keep the energy high.

After development, I collect the best seven or eight candidates for scanning. Most compositions benefit from some cropping, so I will send a link to a page which displays the framing I think works best for each image.

Second Location ( frames 16-30 )

After reviewing the images we will have a conversation about the features that added or distracted from each composition. We will use a second session to incorporate these observations and try an alternate environment.

Review and Scan

In order to capture the absolute best detail and color, your favorite images will be sent out for a high-end scan by James Beck Digital. For printed work I will recommend Digital Silver Imaging and Metropolitan Picture Framing to obtain a beautiflly rendered print and masterfully constructed frames.
