Vintage Sara Mac [black/white film] (8.8.10)

Posted in 2010, black and white, Film, model shoot, Photo Post, Vintage Shoots by William Patrick Butler on August 25, 2010

welcome back to the Vintage Sara Mac series, this time in black and white film! 🙂

i shot all of these using a Mamiya RB67 that my boy Joey Miller has been kind enough to let me use (so be sure to click that link to check out his work!) 🙂

i developed the two black and white rolls last weekend and just got done scanning them all in.  i’ll be dropping off the two color rolls later this week but, odds are, it’s gonna take Deville Camera about two weeks to get those negs back to me.

let’s get to it!

(the two dresses you saw in last week’s post from SHESABETTIE! will make a return in the color rolls)

((all of these were shot on 120 Ilford black/white film. first roll was 50 ISO and the second roll was 400 ISO))



Vintage Sara Mac [digital] (8.8.10)

Posted in 2010, Color, Digital, model shoot, Photo Post, Vintage Shoots by William Patrick Butler on August 18, 2010

well, the last two weeks have been really busy and hectic, which included a lot of traveling back and forth between Southaven/Olive Branch/Starkville to make sure my friends where all right.

but!  things seem to be working out and i’m back home in the Jacktown and that means it’s time for a Scenes Around Jackson post! 🙂

if you happened to read the previous [interlude] post, you’d know i was working on pulling together two shoots.  one with Sara Mac and the other with Storage 24.

well, time just ran out and i just couldn’t shoot Storage 24 in the short time i had before hopping back on the road to Southaven/Olive Branch.  (but i still plan on doing so at a later date)

which brings us back to sara mac.

it’s almost become a tradition now.  sara comes home for the summer from South Korea, and i grab her for a day and we have a shoot.  we’ve done it for the past 3 years and this year was no different 🙂

this year, i wanted to continue my vintage theme and i knew sara would be perfect for it.  but, just like with the first vintage shoot, a lot of things had to fall into place for it to happen.

so, many thanks to Meredith Norwood, for introducing me to Jennifer S. Graves.

Jennifer owns SHESABETTIE! Fine Vintage Clothing and Accessories and is the one that provided the first two outfits for the shoot.

many thanks ladies, couldn’t have done it without you.

(these are all the digital images.  the black/white and color film images i shot with a Mamiya RB67 will be up in the coming weeks.  i can’t wait.)


[interlude 07]

alrighty guys, i’m gonna go ahead and already call it for this week.

between traveling to memphis tomorrow, being up there for a few days, and then having to get ready for the Storage 24 shoot on Sunday, i just don’t have time to work on a full post this week.

so, an interlude!

my friend Sara Mac is back in town from South Korea and, you guessed it, i’m already working on getting a shoot pulled together for us.

till then, enjoy a few shots from our very first shoot 🙂

i shot all these with my Rolleiflex 2.8d.

this was the moment that sara took one of my all time favorite pictures of me
