Mt. Hood Organic Farms – O’Dessa + Patrick

O’Dessa and Patrick were married near the base of Mt. Hood in front of a gathering of friends and family. I can’t imagine a better backdrop to an Oregon wedding.  The light and airy details were the perfect compliment to a bright summer day.

VSCO Film 06 Review

VSCO released their latest film emulation plugins for Lightroom and ACR today, The Alternative Process Collection. These are very interesting for us as many of our favorite film images are from Portra 160 pushed a stop. These plugins should be very versatile for photographers shooting weddings, editorial, or personal work. This is definitely a popular aesthetic and VSCO seems to have more refined presets with each release.

Roll-over the images to see the before & after.

Pentax 645z Review

The last week was spent shooting a few thousand frames through the Pentax 645z. This is Pentax’s new somewhat-affordable medium format system. We wanted to take a real world approach to how we would shoot the camera, so this review will be less technical and more about how it performed on the job.  We took it to a full wedding, a weeks worth of portrait sessions and a night shoot.

Medium format digital cameras have been on our mind lately and this did not let us down. This is one of the many current medium format offerings to use the 51mp CMOS sensor produced by Sony. This new CMOS sensor is a huge deal for the way we shoot, mainly because it allows useable high-iso and live view, this wasn’t possible with the previous generation of medium format digitals.
