B&W Photography




I
love B&W photography and enjoy shooting film along with digital. Film was my first love in photography. This medium has the power to transform a portrait into an expressive and timeless work of art. Nothing compares to the effect of film grain on a B&W photograph; it captures a richness and subtlety of shading that cannot be achieved digitally.

I'm not knocking digital ... I shoot a lot of digital, but I love film and love having the opportunity to shoot film during a portrait session or at an event that lends itself to B&W film.

For those photographers to just happen to be reading my blog and want to know about my film cameras, I use a Mamiya 645, a Rolleiflex, and a Nikon F 100. I just bought a vintage 4x5 camera I can't wait to give a try!

Greensboro Wedding Photography - Amber and Tim




W
hat a great time Lindsey and I had at Tim and Amber’s wedding. I left early Saturday morning and met Tim and the groomsmen at the golf course. They wanted a few photos and it was nice to get on the course and watch them play. After about an hour I left to meet Lindsey and we both went to the salon to photograph the girls. Think about it... from 100% testosterone to 100% estrogen all in a matter of minutes. Hey, it’s what we do! The wedding was very nice, spiritual with a very personal touch, a real reflection on the lives of Tim and Amber. In spite of our marathon training schedule Lindsey and I may have gained an extra pound from one to many “meetings” at the most awesome desert bar ever!

Greensboro Newborn Photography ~ Grantham




A
few years ago I was at Revolution Mill in Greensboro photographing a wedding. A young lady was playing the harp so beautifully I had to stop and listen. We spoke briefly and exchanged business cards. Last week I received a call, she had just given birth to a beautiful little boy and wanted me to photograph him. Grantham was relaxed and calm, a perfect little angel. I thought ... how nice it would be to have a mom that could send you off to sleep each night with the soothing sound of a harp.

NC Children's Photography ~ The Persiani Family




O
ne of the best things about living in a small town your entire life is that you get to know and make friends with lots of people. You make connections and establish relationships with people and they become dear to you. I've known Monica for a long time, she's a beautiful young lady that loves kids. I photographed her senior pics a few years ago and now she's a wonderful wife to Adam and a super mom to Cal.

Of all the things I just mentioned, there's one other thing that's even more special ... Monica's granddad and my my dad were very close friends. They carpooled to work together for many years. I would have loved to of heard some of their conversations as they traveled to and fro. I lost my dad about nine years ago and it still hurts to know he's gone, but every time I see Mr. Mills somehow I see a little bit of dad in him and it always brightens my day. Mr. Mills is having some surgery soon... keep him and his family in your prayers. Do you see how good it is, living in a little town.

Greensboro Wedding Photography - Becca and Jeff




J
ust as the wedding preparations began, a gentle rain began to fall from the sky. Sometimes rain on a wedding day can cause a little stress but not for Becca and Jeff ... their eyes were on each other and not the sky. Weddings are filled with superstitions ... the groom isn't supposed to see the bride on the wedding day, the garter, the veil, something borrowed something blue, and throwing rice just to name a few. It's interesting to look at superstitions to see why they are what they are. Let's take rain for example; did you know that rain on your wedding day is supposed to bring good luck? It's origin can be tracked back to several different cultures. Marriage is often referred to as "tying the knot". The belief is that a wet knot is much harder to untie than a dry knot. Rain is also associated with fertility since it restores and maintains crops. So... if you happen to be a little superstitious then a little rain on your wedding day isn't all that bad. Thank you Jeff and Becca for a wonderful day and I pray that your knot will be tightly tied and, if you want a house full of children that you will be fruitful and multiply.
