Thank you for stopping by to visit our personal photographs - several times a year we get together for family photos or other family events and going forward this is the space I will use to present the work. Feel free to comment - I look forward to hearing from you.
Don't forget to "Like" Emotional Renderings Face Book page, too. Thank you, everyone!
A few words on how I like to capture portraits: some are posed others are candid: in the case of an actual photo shoot I will ask the subject to slowly move, dance, walk or look off and meditate for a minute or more. Another important photographic dynamic is lens choice and I use both 100mm and 50mm lenses, and occasionally pull out the 16-35mm for family portraits. Another trademark of mine, using extreme shallow depth of field (creating blur or Bokeh) for single portraits - creating a very soft image and dare I say, film-like in its appearance. Please click on the "Digital Darkroom" tab for additional information on my workflow process. Thank you.
Eastman Double-X / 522 Black & White Film: Test Study examples
To compliment a Street Photography project I am working on, I decided I wanted some shots on film. But I wanted a very emotional look or feel: After some research I decided on Eastman Double-X / 5222 Motion Picture Film. By chance, they also make this emulsion for 35mm film cameras. The following images are test samples as I prepare to head to NYC in mid-December to continue on my project, "The Steps of 42nd Street". Your comments and/or questions are welcomed. Thank you.
