A night of friends and attempts at hadouken photography...

A week and a half ago I got a few friends together for a combination light painting/hadouken photoshoot. Lovely idea, but much harder to execute that I'd anticipated. Sadly things didn't go so well, but as it's said, failure is the best teacher!
Next time I'll nail the concept...but until then, here's a few images from a very odd evening.
 

Unfortunately, a good portion of the people who came had to leave, early, so I decided to focus on making portraits of those who stayed around......

To Begin Anew...

Over the past few months, the idea of some sort of creative renewal came into my mind. In the end, I decided to go "back to the basics" and shoot a good portion of my work on medium format film, as I feel it provides an aesthetic very well suited to my style of shooting, particularly with portraits. So from now on, I'll be shooting a portion of every portrait shoot I do on my recently acquired Bronica ETRS. 
I'm incredibly excited for this slight shift in approach, and think it will help me further my quest for making impact-filled images.
