Dancing In The Dark

This shoot is from a few months back.  The fun and lovely Olia was my model for the day.  We always have a great time working together and the results are... well, look for yourself.  I shot with my current favorite Pentax 67II.  This time loaded with Kodak Ektar 100.  My second P67 failed, so I pulled out the Hasselblad 501cm (which I rarely use in studio) for the black and white images. The Hassy was loaded with Delta 100, I believe.  One light... a bit harsh I think.  Next time I'll remember to diffuse a bit.  Enjoy.

I met blogger Ché F.M. while making a shoe purchase; a classic long-wing bloucher in a not so common shade of cognac.  She praised my sense of style and a kinship was born.  Weeks later I invited her to be my subject and talk about the #menswear explosion that is happening.  Everywhere you look on the internet you see a new blog that tries to capture the essence of it all.  Ché likes pieces that embody the classic American heritage look.  She believes that tailoring to fit is more important than a brand name.  Ché's vision is to take that old grandpa style and then remixe it for mass appeal.
