Portrait Sessions

Reflections of West Midtown - A Film Rendition

I’ve recently started to shoot more and more film with my shoots. I’ve been sneaking in a few rolls at each shoot, trying to perfect my approach to a film portrait. As I grew a little more confident, I reached out to Jessica Manning, a local actress and model, about taking part in a 100% film shoot. Much to my surprise, she agreed! Once we locked in the date, I decided on a focus for the shoot -- my part of Atlanta! I call this series “Reflections of West Midtown.” The few blocks that surround me are full of beauty, and I wanted to incorporate them into the shoot and hoped the grit of film would help capture its raw beauty.  

The images presented in this series are a select few of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them and urge you to grab a camera and capture the character of your neighborhood!   

*All images were shot with Kodak Portra 160 and 400 film on a 35mm Nikon f100
