updated. Portraits of Classmates in 2010. As a premise, I asked them to hold something that would represent themselves and better show the world who they are. While most of them picked their architectural models, most revealed their personalities quite well through what they were holding. Also I shot this entire set using Kodachrome because Dwayne photo was going to stop doing slides. So no more development of the film…………….
So basically I sent out an email like this and they all showed up!!!!I was thankful
Hey Studio Gang,
Every Year, I do a side project in studio, for the sake of documentary. Last year, we had a very interesting 22 postcard creation. See Link :
I was wondering if you guys would be interested in participating this year as well. This year, I will do something similar. The theme will be Portrait and Model. The reason I brought it up is because of the last 2 rolls Kodachrome of film I have….. If you ask your parents they will answer they still make those?…. Sadly, they dont and haven’t been doing so for the last 10 years. there’s only 1 place left in the world that processes this type of film. They will stop processing them mechanically in December. I have 2 rolls left. One for a wedding im shooting in December, and the other one, well, I’m deciding to use it on our studio. Both rolls have been expired for about 3 yrs now, they may create interesting color effects. Unfortunately, they have to be sent to Kansas to be processed… so may take a while to get back. If I see you in studio (after our crazy pin up), I may ask to take a photo of you. Doesn’t have to be today, Tomorrow just anytime I see you when you’re less busy (2 minutes max, hehehe).
Just a heads up so I dont have to retell this story again to all 27 of us.
