Roll 43

I'm sure every photographer has a method to their shoots. For me, it's very simple and an intimate experience. I like to stay focused without distractions of others, so I primarily shoot alone with models. I'll usually enter a space and take in the environment while I'm loading my film. The goal is to connect with the person in front of me. I want them to feel as comfortable as possible and I really try to engage in conversation before I even bring the viewfinder to my eye. When the moment is right I meter the model, entering my shutter speed and aperture on my camera manually. I leave these settings the same until I notice a change in light. At this point my goal is to capture emotions and tell a story through the images I make.

Shooting with film I never rely on looking at a screen and I love the simplicity of the Leica M rangefinders. I think Richard Avedon put it well, "I hate cameras. They interfere, they're always in the way. I wish: if I could work with my eyes alone." Ok, maybe I don't hate my cameras partially because I work with cameras that that really suit my work flow. When I click the shutter I'm done with that frame. It's been exposed and I'm confident that I captured exactly what my eye saw in the viewfinder.
