These two were up for anything. My kind of people to shoot! Rutgers Gardens is a sprawling landscape of different species of trees and flowers. Even though it’s ten minutes from my house, I still have yet to see the entire grounds. We visited the Bamboo Forest, a small creek and the log cabin. It wasn’t the warmest day, but I work with troopers who know I will deliver the goods. Congratulations to Rachel and Robb!
Portraits with Kieran Tintle kicked off with a drop cloth background in my living room. As we waited for the rain to taper off, we ran off a few shots. I made use of the tan wall to bounce light back onto him. Artificial tan. Since we had a relaxed schedule, I shot both digital and film. The look of film still has a lot of appeal to me and I say that it keeps me sharp. You can’t run off 100 shots on a roll of 120 film. The particular camera I use produces 15 shots per roll and every shot must be carefully thought out.
Our locations included my living room, Old Queen’s College (Rutgers), Harris Steel and a playground. Kieran was a very good sport because the rain picked up at times and it wasn’t exactly warm out.
