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.

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:
Technical
Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID
Leaf Aptus 65
Capture One Software
Profoto D1 Monoblocs 1000ws
Thunder Gray Paper Backdrop
Canvas Backdrop

Thanks for hanging in there with us!!

What does an Americas Next top model contestant, Mahagony Magazine and Audrey Hepburn have in common?

These past 5-7 days here at the studio have been extremely hectic. Last Friday we were commissioned to shoot one of Americas Next Top Model Contestants to be featured in the next issue of Mahogany Magazine. Although we can’t share any of those pics until the magazine issue is released. Just look for it on the shelves. We don’t watch the show so we can’t say anything about Victoria’s personality on the show, but what we can say is she is a real gem and possesses a personality that is sweet, polite, professional and confident. She is well rounded and can work in front of a camera quicker than one can press a shutter release. So – we look forward to sharing her shoot in the future when we are able to be free of media constraints.

Now for Audrey Hepburn – The following day we had the pleasure of photographing Kyrian. She is a stunningly attractive beauty as you will see in the photographs below. This was part of a campaign for a jewelry shoot. Several months ago Evelyn, Amy and Tyson (They make up our artistic team) came up with the desire to do an Audrey Hepburn photo session and they wanted to incorporate Kyrian into the shoot due to her classic look. Well – we were presented with the Jewelry to promote for the season and it just all came together. ¬†Some of these were shot digitally and others with film — The difference is obvious as film inherits an entirely different feel than Digital.

So what do Americas Next top model contestant, Mahagony Magazine and Audrey Hepburn have in common?     They were all part of a busy and productive week silly!!!

A Couple of New Additions

These past two months at KLinh Evelyn Grace Photography are not going to dwindle into the back of our minds without stamping its footprint on our business first. We’ve made some choices that have caused serious transitions within us personally as well as the way we operate. First of all, we have integrated several new tools into our workflow. One of them being a Mamiya medium format camera system which is capable of shooting film as well as digital. Our experience with the Mamiya camera is plain and simple: We feel that it’s a better fit for our portrait sessions and yes – it does take a much better precise photograph than our 35mm Canon system. It would be unfair to compare the two – they both have there +’s and -‘s, so we are using both.

Another addition that we our proud of is in our staff.

Meet Brittney:

Brittney will be running our In Studio Portrait Sessions.

Brittney will be starting here at the studio on Friday August 10th. She will be running our In House Portrait Sessions starting on Fridays and then adding additional portrait days after her Friday’s book up. We are now taking appointments for Brittney. The Sessions have no sitting fee thus enabling you more freedom in purchasing only the prints and print sizes that you want. There are no high pressure sales, no membership or subscription requirements and there are absolutely zero catches ¬†– just great photographs. ¬†This is perfect for New borns, Seniors, Headshots, Holiday Cards, etc. For more information click here: In House Portrait Sessions¬†read on…….

With the addition of Brittney comes the bonus of new technology to make her and your experience all around wonderful. We are introducing wireless tethered shooting into our workflow. What…huh? This simply means that while Brittney is photographing, ¬†you (the customer) will be able to sit back on our couch with an iPad or iPhone and view the pictures live the moment that they are shot. You will be able to rate each picture with a one to five star rating. While you rate each picture – the photo finisher (Evelyn or myself) are notified of your favorites. Magic

We have noticed that within the Lexington SC area there really is no portrait studio besides the Olan Mills studio in Kmart. No offense to Kmart or Olan Mills but, this is our “Professional” solution for the people of Lexington. Go to our site by clicking here: Website¬† ¬†— We think you’ll be very pleased with our high level of skill as professional photographers.

MAKE YOUR APPOINTMENT WITH BRITTNEY!!!!

Thanks Everyone for your current and continued support.

You may have noticed nothing?

If you have visited our site you may have noticed something. Actually, we are hoping more on the lines of not noticing anything. Confused? Yeah well that’s because most of the work has been under the hood and out of site. This past week we’ve been busy with redirecting the way you view our site via certain devices such as an iPad or an iPhone. The entry page of our website now picks up what type of device you are using ¬†and then proceeds to automatically direct you to the best way to view our website. You don’t have to do a thing. What does this mean? Simple – if you are using a flash compatible device then you will be flown off to the flash version of our site. If you are using a non flash device then you will be taken to our alternative paradise on the web to view our html-5 site. On top of that invisible change are the way slide shows are viewed. Now we are showing a lot more slides within a slide show (more photos). Although, we believe that less is more, we are going to toy with the numbers game for about a week or two. Well, thanks for reading and we look forward to hearing from you.

Oh and PS. The site we are talking about is our website, not Facebook — since when did Facebook mean ones legitimacy, ok – now I know what the next blog entry might be……..

Thanks Everyone
