What happens when a group of photographers show up to photograph a model and one of them realizes that their battery in their camera is dead? I will tell you what happens, they all turn to look at the guy who has two cameras with him! haha. Thats right! if you know me I usually shoot on both Film and Digital on photoshoots. That said, being the nice guy that I am, I handed my digital camera over and decided to shoot our model all on film. =)  Ok thats not all true, I did fire a few on digital but that was only when I received my camera back towards the end =)

One thing I loved about this shoot was the fact that I was forced to return to my photography roots in that I was limited to the 12 shots that a 6x6 camera can give you per roll of film. For me, this limitation was priceless for the main reason that I had to be patient, creative and actually put thought into each photograph that I created. In the end, I was greatful for the dead battery as it reminded me why I love shooting film! Ok folks thats it for now! As always check back in... more photography goodies to come!
