The week in pics…in b&w

Since my one year blog-iversary I have been beyond busy with shoots, meetings, and moving my studio to a new East Village location (stay tuned for the announcement in March!) I have also made two trips to Chicago since Dec, shooting food for Kraft!

Most do not know this, but there was a time (about 13 years ago) when I said I would never shoot a wedding. Yes, I I eat, sleep and breathe all things weddings! There was also a time not so long ago that I said I didn’t think I could shoot food — nope, that’s not for me. There is so much that goes into it; it’s not just a pick up your camera and shoot kind of deal. It’s a challenge, to be sure.  But these shoots have been so rewarding for me on levels I never anticipated, I feel incredibly fortunate to have experience everything about this entire shoot experience. Better yet, the shoots will continue throughout the year.

As for today’s post, it shows you some of what I’ve been working on recently, aside from Kraft. Feeling nostalgic, I decided to change things up a bit with all black and white images. When I picked up my first camera, film camera (yes, film) it had a roll of b&w. I loved the way b&w film looked, there was something so special about it. I have this lens that I am in love with, it’s my least expensive and one that most photographers don’t even have anymore. This lens (a 50mm) was a standard portrait lens back in the days of film. There are a few images below that remind me of the magic a film camera could capture.
