I recently had the opportunity to do a program for the Professional Photographers of California’s Pro Photo Expo, which is their state convention, on how I’m still using film in my day to day portrait work. Kodak Alaris was one of the sponsors of the convention and they were kind enough to send me 10 sheets of Tri-X 4×5 sheet film so that I could produce some portraits on the material for my presentation.
It’s been quite sometime since I’ve taken time to write on my blog and quite a lot has happened since last post in November 2015! First I hope this finds everyone well and that life is good for them. I know it’s pretty darn great for me.
I’m not sure when the studio portrait ran into having a bad rap, but I’m here to tell you they are alive and kicking with Pete Rezac Photography. The temperature is always perfect, it never rains, the winds are calm unless we turn on a fan. Essentially, environmentally speaking it’s the best possible situation!
I was commissioned by Catherine and James earlier this month to create a series of family portraits of them and their two beautiful daughters. A few days before our session Catherine contacted me to let me know that their family had grown since our consultation with the addition of a new golden doodle puppy, and would it be possible to include him on a few frames as well. How was I suppose to say no to photographing a puppy? Especially when he gave me expressions like this?
