I'm back again with more pictures. When I did this shoot I rented a Contax 645 and bought some medium format film. Now, I have never shot medium format and it's been 14 years since I shot 35mm film. It was a lot of fun and I was really excited to see what the results were. It's a look that is hard to reproduce digitally and I think it's special. Expensive.............but special.
Here is a picture of the Contax 645 followed by pictures I took with it.

The day has finally come and my pictures have made it to Style Me Pretty. I am so excited to get these on my blog and let the cat out of the bag. I worked a bunch of other wedding professionals from the Dallas area to put this shoot together for a feature on Style Me Pretty and we had to wait till they posted first before we could show any of the pictures.

I really enjoy black and white portraiture. Especially really simple portraits like this using natural light. So, I had an idea to contact pastors in the area that would like their portrait taken for free. I wrote a bunch of pastors/christian leaders and the only one to respond was Andy McQuitty, lead pastor at Irving Bible Church. Lucky for him because he got himself a really cool self-portrait. Didn't cost him a cent. Nothing wrong with free.
I'm glad I got to do this for Andy because he is such a great pastor, speaker, leader, and representative of the Christian faith for our community.

TV on the Radio is one of my favorite bands and since they are not too famous it's cool to get to see them in a small venue like the Lakewood Theatre in Dallas. I got to see them not too long ago there and they were opened by the Dirtbombs. Who are the Dirtbombs right? They are a Detroit punk rock band that have been around for quite some time. I was really impressed by their performance. It's always cool when the opening act is really good.
TV on the Radio has a very unique sound that I found about 4 years ago. I can't really remember how I found them, but I'm always looking to see when they are going to come back to Dallas for a performance. Check out their website to hear some of their music.
