This post has been long overdue. Last year has been one of the craziest, eventful, sorrowful, joyful year in our lives. I am finally forcing myself to put up a short post of my baby girl, Maya. Below is a small glimpse of her time into our lives from Sept 20, 2014 until today. Suma, Isaac and myself are extremely happy to have her be part of our lives. Even putting a short post can be challenging when you have a little daredevil in our home. Well I am happy and proud to present our newest addition: Maya!
I have been wanting to do a photoshoot for quite sometime partly to improve my shooting style as well as to explore the Kodak and Fuji medium format film. I have also been wanting to do a film vs. digital shoot for quite sometime and finally everything came into place. So to do this shoot, I needed a model and that’s where Alex came into play. I work with Alex and she was happy to be my wonderful model.
So the first three frames are digital and rest of them are all film. I got a chance to use my Mamiya medium format camera for this fun shoot. Its not all the time I bust the 15 lb camera out so I was really excited to use it on this shoot. From this gear its becoming very obvious that film hasn’t lost its edge.
Location scouting is always a great challenge when you are new to the area but I think this setting worked out well. These pictures were on par with my digital pics and I enjoyed the fact that I was able to keep all my film shots. When you shoot film it forces you think hard because each click costs $$$ and you can’t review your LCD. Props to Indiefilmlab for processing/scanning the roll.
I hope to do more of these shoots to broaden my skill set as well to use all the gear that I have at my disposal. I love shooting medium format and it has a certain character than 35mm cameras just don’t match. Thank you Alex for being such a great model. Hope you all enjoyed the set.
