Cleveland, OH – Hasselblad 500c 80mm f/2.8
Hasselblad 500c 80mm f/2.8
Polaroid Land 350
As photographers and parents we LOVE capturing images of #babyderkin. George is our constant muse and source of joy, he makes it easy (along with an iPhone) So naturally, we discussed ideas of how we should create an image for each month of his first year (feeling somewhat compelled to do so by the current trend of parents and images FILLING the internet.) Prior to his birth many brilliant and creative ideas were discussed, then George was born and we found one ingredient lacking…time. As it happened Benjamin took several Polaroid images during our first month as a family and thus the tradition began.
Today we are sharing with you the behind the scenes glimpse at the making of a monthly Polaroid. Benjamin got creative and fancy with month number five, using his Graflex 4×5 Speed Graphic camera testing out his New 55 film. Happy Monday and happy five months George!
My friends are inexcusably AWESOME. I love them, I love the work that they pursue, and I love taking pictures of them. Happy Wednesday friends! -B

I’m just gonna come right out and say it. I have some awesome friends! Not just the guys that I hang out with on a weekly basis (though you know I love you guys too) but in the photographic and artistic world, I have AMAZING friends that encourage and challenge me to serve you better in every part of this awesome business. After going through a few rolls of film that I just got back I just thought I’d share a few of my friends with you. Be warned, they are very cool people and you might need to expand your blog roll.

May 2013 \\ West Virginia \\ Yellowood Design Studio‘s Ax Camp
This year marked the premere of Yellowood‘s Ax Camp. An invitation only camp out, where skills are put to the test and the soul’s inner adventurer can roam free. We didn’t just randomly “chop down a tree” (though that is awesome too), we went to a place where new friendships were formed from the shared experience of exhaustion, exploration, and basic living. We “tended the soil” and had a blast in the process! Everyone went home with a nickname, awards were given, and we were all filled with the joy and gratitude of being a part of the inspiring Yellowood legacy. -benj

( I like making people laugh with me for photos because it is an easily accessible way to get really close to someone.
The following laughs are real, but they were also slightly contrived. )
Hasselblad 500C \\ I got some film back today, more of a blog on that soon to come, but I wanted to post this photo today along with this thought that I have been encouraged to be mulling over; there is peace, kindness and beauty in each moment. I’m looking forward to spending some time this weekend doing nothing more than enjoying some moments. Happy weekend friends.
