In the photography studio with Kodak Tri-X 400 35mm film and a Model in 2013

Recently we were loaned a 35mm canon camera to test out some expired kodak film. Long story short on that one because the film was clearly expired and the scans were less than satisfactory to post. Well – our 35mm journey did not stop there ūüôā – One day last week I was out and about at the local Rite Aid and I stumbled across some of my favorite black and white film which is Kodak Tri-x 400 35mm film. It was a whopping $10 per roll, but I purchased 2 rolls of it anyway. When I got back home I asked Evelyn if she would put in a call to the modeling agency we have been shooting with this past year and asked them if they had any models that needed to update and possibly test with us. ¬†They were more than happy to send a model by the name of Spencer to us for a Saturday session to see what we could do with Kodak Tri-X 400 35mm film. We are more than extremely pleased with the results. Here are some of our favorites. We only used one roll of ¬†Tri-X for Spencer, the other roll we used on family.

Double Exposure “The Fall of Eve” with Victoria Henley

A double exposure (or multiple exposure) is when you expose the same frame of film more than once. Kind of like drawing two images on top of each other using one piece of paper. Hope that makes sense. The following editorial contains three double exposure photos from the shoot. They are pretty obvious and easy to spot……… Enjoy!!!

Model: Victoria Henley from “Americas Next Top Model Cycle 19”
Stylist: Tyson Keanum
Environment: Columbia Antique Mall
Camera: Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID and Mamiya AFD 645 II
Lighting: Ambient & Profoto D1’s
Film: Kodak Portra 160 & Kodak Portra 400 both shot at box speed

Theme of editorial: The Fall of Eve

The Temptation of Eve

“Sin” – The turning away


The Uprising

The Uprising 2


Self Loathing



Self Serving

It’s been quite some time since we blogged

We just did a check and the last time we posted a blog was March 18th. That is good in a way that we don’t oversaturate your time, but also bad because it makes it appear that we are inactive – which is exactly the opposite of why there was such a lapse of time since our last post. We are going to try to catch you up within the next week or two.
In short we’ve been busy doing several fashion editorials, test shots for a talent agency, and various other projects.
Here are a few test shots we did with a model for Tout Agency in Charleston.

For our photography friends:
Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID
Leaf Aptus 65
Capture One Software
Profoto D1 Monoblocs 1000ws

Thanks for hanging in there with us!!

This past weekend started out with a very fun shoot with “Mackenzie” – We actually began the shoot in-studio, but quickly decided that because of Mackenzie having such a vibrant personality that an environmental shoot would suit her much better. We can’t tell you enough how much we loved photographing Mackenzie. Below are few of our favorite Black and White shots from the shoot.

MUA & Hair: Tyson Keanum
Film: Ilford Delta 400
Hand Processed: Ifosol Developer
Camera Model: Mamiya RZ67 IID with 110m 2.8 lens

So Classic

Personality and a Fabulous Wardrobe.

Thanks for Viewing!!

Emily Pageant Portfolio (our way)

We have recently had a string of Pageant models in our studio.
We don’t advertise for pageants, but have received some calls to for some portfolio work. Each client expressed a desire to have something different than what was already available in the pageant world. We looked up a few images on google to follow suit, but¬†decided to do things our own way as we were unimpressed. So, We suggested using our Makeup and hair artists who are grounded in the fashion industry and not pageantry to our client and went from there. We got appropriate head shots and full body. Emily is 7 years old (almost 8) and has a charming personality. She reminded us of what Marilyn Monroe may have been like as a child. Here are just a few to show you.¬†This is how we shoot our pageant models.

Head shot. Notice we do not blur or paint the skin. Just a beautiful natural look.

We love this one so much that it made the front page of our website.

All the outdoor shots where done with Kodak Portra 160 film for a softer look. We hand develop all our film and scan them in. We love the wonderful skin tones it gives.

Thank you for viewing.

We did this shoot a few weeks ago and just got a chance to Blog and Post today:) Thalia is an aspiring teen model and well worth the attention she is getting. She is not only beautiful but fun loving and fresh. Here are some of the photos from that shoot.

She showed up basic and our makeup and hair artist did their magic. (Amy Shaming and Tyson Keanum) She has a natural beauty.

Wow! Love the pink shoes.

Interesting thing….she is wrapped in one of our backdrops.

What a Beauty.

Just Casual.

Beautiful in Black and White.

We would like to thank our team and Thalia. Keep in mind….we don’t just take photos of professional models. We also help develop a look for aspiring models as well.

Favorites from a recent “Sliver Session”

Before you view the “favorite photos” in this post I wanted to say that we incorporated a new film. Since Kodak will not be
producing there films anymore we have been on the look out for replacements. The film we used in this shoot is Ilford Delta 100.
As luck would have it, we think we might have found a suitable replacement for the KODAK TMAX line. We actually like this film
a little better. Not much better, but in our opinion, Delta surpasses TMax in several ways.  One being the way the highlights seem to glow.
Now, that could be the developer we used, so the next step for us is to try different developers.

Well, on to the photos:
Model: Madison ¬†— She actually came in for pageant head shots, but aside from the head shots – this is the style that we’ve become known for
and more importantly grown accustomed to. Enjoy!!
MUA & Hair: Tyson Keanum
For those interested further: Madison used our current promotion which incorporates MUA & Hair.  Check out our promotions page on our website.

Last look – Check out out her hair glows.

Well there you have it!!  As always, Thank you for following our blog.

In Studio Silver Session

If you follow us on a social media site such as “Facebook” or “Twitter” your going to know that we love incorporating film into our photography sessions.
In fact the fashion link on our website is 90% film work and our storefront / gallery has a section dedicated to film. We want to talk about one of our
in studio photography sessions. We call it the Silver Session. It lasts 90 minutes and is exclusively photographed on Black & White medium format film
and then hand processed and scanned in at a very high resolution enabling extremely large prints. We can’t express how timeless these images feel.
Everyone that has viewed the prints from these photo sessions have always associated the look with “Old Hollywood.” The great thing is
that it really is for everyone. Women as well as Men. This type of photo session gives that extra touch of style and grace to a woman and at the same time
can yield a harder edged, contrasty rugged look that Men prefer by simply switching the type of black and white film we shoot with. Well it’s not that simple,
but you can trust us with the technical side of photography. Check out the samples we’ve attached to this post, but keep one thing in mind. ¬†A digital pic viewed on
the internet lacks a tremendous¬†amount of resolution and quality as compared to the physical print — Either way we do feel that you deserve this and that you will be thoroughly impressed.
Maybe even enough to schedule a Silver Photography Session with us.

This was from a Location Silver Session for a fashion magazine editorial- We loved it so much that we now have a 30×40 print of this in our Gallery.

In Studio Silver Session Film: Kodak Tri-X 400 ¬†We have a 16×20 print of this in one of our window displays so you can view anytime your in the area. ¬†“Water Mark is for copyright use”

So there you have it!
