Fun Family Portrait Sitting

I’ve photographed this group of fine people for more than a decade.  A couple ‘charactors’ have joined the group.  Saturday sitting in the studio and about town.0119Brans0123Brans

Relationships

My work is always about the play of light, but light maters not if the spirit of the relationship is lost.  This brother and sister have been visiting the studio around New Year’s Day for a couple years now.

Fine Portraits on Film in the year 2015?

I do plenty of fine work with my digital equipment.  That said, I hang many prints in my south facing windows.  I have some silver halide (black and white) prints that are some 50 years old, along with some of my own that are past a decade.  They do not degrade, which is something that can’t be said for color and especially color “giclee” (inkjet) prints.  I will continue to make color prints, but always tell the client that UV glass is needed, and display near the sun, should in all cases be avoided.

If you have the inclination, I can, and still do make traditional (silver halide) Black and White Selenium toned prints. I do more than “take pictures,” I make “portraits for the ages,” in more ways than one. These prints also just have a resonance and depth that is very hard if not impossible to beat with more modern digital capture and printing.
