Vintage Sara Mac [color film] (8.8.10)

Posted in 2010, Color, Film, model shoot, Photo Post, Vintage Shoots by William Patrick Butler on October 25, 2010

welcome back to the concluding photos of the Vintage Sara Mac series, this time in color medium-format film!

sorry for the long long looooong wait between posts, but, as you probably gathered from the previous [interlude], i’ve been pretty busy these days.  but after i got paid for one of those things i’ve been busy with and i picked up the last two color film rolls i’d dropped off to Deville Camera to get developed, i knew i couldn’t go any longer without posting them and finally having a real update. 🙂

once again, i shot these with the Mamiya RB67 that my friend Joey Miller let me borrow.

i haven’t shot color film in, well, a long long time.  in fact, before i got my DSLR, i only tended to shoot with black/white film.  so i’m actually still getting used to shooting with color film.

anyway, let’s do this!

(dresses were provided by SHESABETTIE! Fine Vintage Clothing and Accessories)

((these were all shot with 120 Fuji pro color film. 400 ISO))

VINTAGE SARA MAC: COLOR FILM

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: BLACK AND WHITE

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.)

VINTAGE SARA MAC

[Model Shoot] Thuy Tran – Vintage Shoot @ The Commons (5.13.10)

Posted in 2010, black and white, Color, Digital, model shoot, Photo Post, Vintage Shoots by William Patrick Butler on May 17, 2010

this is a shoot i’ve been wanting to do for a while.

i’ve had the idea of doing a vintage 1930s/1940s/1950s style shoot, but having the idea is just the first part of the process.

a lot of things had to fall into place for me to turn that idea into photos.

so i’d like to thank: Jonathan Sims (for providing the location), Katie Drummonds (for providing the clothes), Tom Beck (for letting me use his lights), Lizzie Wright (for letting me use her strobist gear yet again), Christina Cannon (for letting me borrow some last minute hats which we didn’t end up using but didn’t know that we wouldn’t at the time), Michel Herrington (for introducing me to the model), and to Thuy Tran (my model)

Melissa Rodwell, a fashion photographer i really admire (and whose photo blog i’m addicted to), is always saying, in that same blog, how important it is to have a good team.  and how that helps produce great photos.  she’s completely right.

it also helps to have good friends too. 😉

let’s get started 🙂
