Agam and Juan

if you have spent some time on my site you’ll know I am a big fan of film, medium and large format cameras and analog printing as well. You need a special care with the old stuff but wow is it ever delicious. I have a couple of different series here of juan and agam and its the second where I had a little epiphany. I brought the camera into focus with a very shallow depth of field then moved the camera about 3 inches closer to them bringing them totally out of focus. (I had to do this with each shot) I had never tried this before because I have always felt soft focus techniques to look artificial and unreal. But on this occasion with the location the light the wardrobe the couple and the right film I though it might work it really brings them into a look and feel from another era, so gorgeous.
