I shoot these images with a 1973 Hasselblad 500 C/M and Kodak film, using the occasional roll of Fuji transparency film.
Since these photographs are scanned from the original negatives, they are mostly straight out of camera. Photoshop is only used to minimally apply basic darkroom adjustments: dodge, burn, exposure and contrast.
As much as I enjoy the advancement of technology, using an analog camera centers me and gives me a fresh perspective on the world.
“And if a day goes by without my doing something related to photography, it’s as though I’ve neglected something essential to my existence, as though I had forgotten to wake up.” - Richard Avedon, 1970
