These Portraits were made on 7-4-09 and 11-26-09. I put them in this book as a present for relatives.
All images were made with a Canon D60
and Canon FD 85mm Lens.
I've been practicing Photography for a while but only got my first DSLR in 2009. Much like the highly acclaimed Landscape Photographer HELEN DIXON, I'm entirely self taught. And I keep learning new things. In April 2010 I started experimenting with a Holga . Which is a Medium Format toy camera well known for it's effects and often used by Fine Art and creative photographers, photography teachers / students, and even a few creative press photographers such as David Burnett. I used a Holga to document some of the aftermath of an EF4 tornado that hit Cullman, AL. And later when I went through Tuscumbia and Florence, AL. I decided to use the Holga instead of my Digital SLR. To some extent, Digital had been a drawback to my creativity. I still use digital for portaits, seascapes, etc. Both of these formats have advantages and also limits. Currently I'm planning a PhotoBook to document some of the scenic & historic churches of AL. More detail will be posted on my facebook page
