taking the field camera indoors

last year i wanted to create a portrait of my incredibly inspiring friend leigh tynan.   in my mind, the perfect backdrop for her was Klaus.  leigh is a powerhouse with the most exceptional style and refined taste... and design is her passion.  to honour the magnitude of her beauty and talent i chose to capture her with a 4x5 view camera.  a camera similar to what ansel adams used to photograph the vast landscapes of the american west.  the actual negative is about the size of your hand (well, my hand anyway).  

i am offering 4x5 portraits this year... if you are interested please enquire.
