Portraits with the Pentax | Family Portrait Maryland

Sessions with Mary :: Clipper Mill Studio

I had a session in the studio recently and thought I’d snap a few with my Pentax 645 film camera for fun.  It’s a whole different ball of wax with a manual focus lens.  I have to slowwww down and be much more thoughtful.  I have to think and devise and intuit a little bit more.  Even then I may miss the moment, which is gut wrenching.  But, a former photo editor used to use football analogies when I was kicking myself about missing a moment.  Sighting that even the greatest players in the league missed key plays at important moments – they learn from it and move on.

It’s back to Photo 101 with the 645.  But, I like that. It keeps me real.
