The Ties That Bind.

I fancy myself a bit of a thinker and when presented with images that people want, I like to think I can come up with neat alternatives to the “ordinary.” This family portrait was one such example.

The client is an art teacher and I knew she’d get a little symbolism if I threw it her way in the photo. As such, this was the first idea I tried and the one, of the entire shoot, that turned out the absolute best. I’d found those headphones on eBay several years ago and, I have to say, I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of them. I think they’ve appeared in something like a half dozen of my favorite images in the time since I bought them.

Unfortunately, in my brilliance, I processed these negs in chemistry that was 5 degrees warmer than it should have been. To the digitally inclined, or the vastly uninitiated, that sounds like nothing. The truth is the small miscalculation in temperature makes these really hard to print. Mercifully, they’re still pretty easy to scan.
