family at sunset

family above is a photograph from last weekend of some family friends at the coast. it was made with a large format wood and brass camera and expired/discontinued film. in a time when perfect pixels have such high value, i find myself even more drawn to the subtleties and imperfections of certain types of traditional photographic techniques. and for me its not a question of "either or" or "new versus old"... rather i take a "both and" approach and enjoy many different types of photography. to view the other photos click here - enjoy.
