Katie G

Okay, I changed my mind and found this set and decided I liked it a little better. Shot at the old abandoned Castle in Chapel Hill that is totally haunted. The film at the bottom are the original negatives. The first negative, the lighter one, is overexposed at 250th of a second. The bottom one, the under exposed one, is at 1/60th of a second. There's reciprocity in action

Final Image shot on my Mamiya medium format 645AF with an 80mm lens
1/125th of a second at f16
tmax 100 120 film, 100 ISO obviously

Katie G

Katie Grossman modeled for me in Chapel Hill recently and this one of the locations we stopped at. The bottom three are the actual film strip negatives. Notice the tonality difference in her face...? Yeah, maybe one day I'll get the film scanners to cooperate with me. Until then...

the old abandoned cotton mill square on spring garden street in greensboro

nikon d200
50mm lens
f22 @ 1/30th of a second on the side of the sky with the storm
f22 @ 1/500th of a second on the side with the sun

spent a few hours shooting this trying to get the sky to show the approaching storm. stitched together from 78 nikon raw images. i spent over 20 hours cloning, masking, et cetera, to get everything to line up right, because on each image you shoot you overlap 25% of the last frame. went across on the sky, then went across on the buildings and grass, and stitched it together up and down as well. i'm pretty psyched about it, this is definitely the hardest i have ever worked on one project

i just like the soft light

matt, jenn, and i were out exploring asheboro the other day to scout for some good locations for shooting. we came across this kid skateboarding and i followed him around for a while. (eric mchenry, 18, of asheboro nc, practices his skating skills at sunset last sunday evening)

we were to shoot our model against a white background, then photoshop them into two other scenic backgrounds we also shot. jenn was nice enough to pose for mine
