Moving from the studio to the second location, Irvine regional park, rich in green thanks to all the rain we have been getting here is Southern California, I brought along my Hasselblad film camera, 150 mm lens, and shot some ilford film.
Mika and Ken are having an american style wedding, and wanted to incorporate their Korean Heritage in the studio engagement session. Perfect opportunity to shoot some 8 x 10 color polaroid film. Thank you to my couples who appreciate the art of film.
Been watching the Rockford Files lately, and Love the opening credits, gritty film stills. This inspired me to shoot Adox Film Implosion, With the off color tones and large grain, prints from this film have a vintage 70’s look and feel. “Did your parents drop off a roll of film in the 70ies in a one dollar shop for cheap development and you just found it on your attic? In this case your images might look like if they were […]

The film has an exciting iso, 12 for shade and 25 for bright sunlight! Quite the […]
Matt and Sarah owners of Voltage New Media vacationed in Laguna Beach, and Matt arranged to have the proposal caught on camera. He proposed at Crystal Cove Beach, and had a bouquet of Sarah’s favorite flowers from the enchanted Florist in Old Town Orange waiting for her.
Here’s some stills from the darkroom process. Stand developed in Acufine. This is why I LOVE shooting in the studio for engagements, and highly recommend it to all my clients. we can experiment with film and digital and make cinemagraphs! And also have a Paul Oakenfold soundtrack- thanks for the recommendation , Josh.”
When you hear “studio”, you think “stuffy,” but NOT true. Studio is elegant, classy and will remain timeless. No need to complicate things by adding extra props like balloons, your initials, etc, which will seem dated in a few years.. Where should we go? Beach? Park? ugh, decision fatigue. Yes, the beach is beautiful, but the engagement session is about the two of YOU, not the landscape. 3. We can control the environment. The studio is air conditioned. . No […]
