In an attempt to diversify the work I produce on an average studio shoot I’ve started to work film into the process. The image above was shot on my Gx680 with Kodak Portra 400. Developed + scanned by my lab (Luster Photo) in Alphabet City. I think the results are good but do they have the texture one desires from a analog image?
I have a big trip planned in a week and a half. The opportunity to make images in Paris and the south of France has presented its self. While I’m excited to make photos in new places, a part of me doesn’t want to leave the familiarity of NYC. NYC is my home, it makes sense in spite of the ever present chaotic energy. France is different, can I capture that in the images?
There are places in NYC that are seething with chaos and pressure. It swirls around you, pushes you and ultimately repels you from returning. Times Square is the epitome of it all.
We had some cool Chloé shoes in the studio today.
