We were privileged to have the opportunity to photograph the Murnahan’s this past Sunday a couple of hours before the Super Bowl started in their home. Many of you know Peggy as the owner of Mad Eliza’s Cakes and Mark her husband as Topeka’s Search Engine Optimization Guru (Geek ). They were my latest “victims” in my new families on film photography project. They were great subjects! The whole session took about 45 minutes total to do. Mark or Peggy will have to let you in on what we came up with to get the expressions that we did on the kids faces!
The images were captured on a film camera made ~1975 on Kodak Tri-X film that was originally introduced in 1954. I hand processed the film in our studio and scanned the film myself. I had almost forgotten how much fun film is to use. You use a light meter to set your aperture and shutter speed then you take the images. It is incredibly liberating as a photographer just to be able to concentrate on your clients and not to feel the need to look at each shot as you take it in the digital viewing screen. The result is that connection between the photographer and the subjects aren’t lost they only get stronger as the session progresses, it’s amazing!
