Harbour Island Locals

So as I mentioned in a previous post I was on a gig in Harbor Island and was lucky enough to have about a 1/2 hour to and an hour most afternoons to go and make some pictures. It was a lot of fun and is something that I probably would have not done a few years ago due to the fact that I used to not be comfortable shooting strangers. I've gotten over that now and it has expanded a whole world of possibilities of picture making. Here's 12 proofs from the trip.

I've learned that kids can be tough. They almost always want to pose and smile but I think this one works.

My favorite landscape I've take in a long time. Notice the dead chicken to the lower left of the frame.

A little mixup for myself, a tight portrait. I've been getting tighter lately, something I plan on doing more of.

So I am now caught up on proof scanning all my latest processed film. I've shot some 4x5 portraits lately, so new negs are piling up for processing and now that the weather has been nicer I plan on shooting a lot more. I also have a new webpage in the works that I'm pretty excited about. I don't want to talk to much about it but I'll say right now that its not another portfolio site. Stay tuned.
