End of the day...


Sunset on Darien Creek























While on this last FIELD TRIP! expedition we stayed in Darien on the waterfront. The weather had been threatening to rain but we drove on down to the coast anyway and of course we had incredibly beautiful days for filming.

And late afternoons... Here's a shot taken in Darien on the wharf.

Five Reasons



Five reasons why we love being photographers are in this photograph.
1: Light
2: Shadow
3: Subject
4: Frame
5: The way it makes us feel.

There are so many reasons really; it's hard to distill it down to just three or five or seven. We could also have said the spontaneous energy, the models, the backstory, the location, the propping and wardrobe, the photo editor is a dream to work with, the client relationship goes way back but...

This photograph just makes us smile.
Sometimes it's just a snap and it's just that simple.

It's Chinatown Jake...





















Los Angeles, CA
Film stock: Kodak Portra 400 NC - 35mm



In 2000 when we were just setting out as photographers we captured this image (on film!) in Los Angeles' Chinatown.

It took us two hours.

We were working on a story about Los Angeles in a day.  For the evening shot we chose The Old Chinatown Central Plaza because it was still intact and had a nostalgic feel to it, the rest of the area having fallen victim to the Asian globalization of Chinatowns everywhere.  
We wanted to convey the magic glow of neon lights and colorful lanterns at that moment just past twilight  when the sky is still blue, but dark enough to let the lights pop. 

We arrived early to scout and then secure our spot on a bench so that we could sit while we waited and waited and waited.  The sun took forever to set, the lights were not going on and it started to get chilly.  But still we waited.  Finally the moment arrived and since we were shooting film we didn't have the million chances that digital affords, we had the one moment to get it right.

Even though we shoot mostly digital now it was our years of shooting film that have most informed and influenced how we shoot.  To this day whenever we find ourselves waiting for the perfect moment we still turn to each other and say "It's Chinatown Jake."   A reference to the last lines in Roman Polanski's 1974 film, Chinatown.

Sweet Peach





















Sweet piece on SWEET PEACH Blog today featuring stylist/interior decorator Anna Forkum of Nashville (with photos by yours truly). We've worked with Anna on many (many) magazine assignments. Her eye is unique and, with her keen sense of original style, balance, and color, mixed with her sly sense of humor, it's a pleasure to shoot with her. Knowing Pam, (we we're profiled on SweetPeachBlog) we sent some photos of Anna's home and a link to her design site knowing she would get "Anna's vision" immediately.
