This is one of my very favorite photographers. Brian from Baltimore aka @briansphotographs. I very often look at his photos and ask myself, how does he do it? But no need to get an answer. I am coming back to check his profile instead.
As many other talented photographers, also Brian doubts himself which only confirms he is a real artist.

Strong ✖ Soft. Beautiful #filmportrait by @loragradyphotography. "My inspiration behind this shoot was to photograph beautiful portraits replicating the emotion + anticipation of a bride getting married on her wedding day. I often times feel like portraits can easily become stiff, so I wanted to stretch myself creatively on this whole shoot. I love how striking and confident, yet calm, Katie is so I wanted to capture the strong + soft beauty with total eye contact. My best photography advice is to never stop observing, never stop creating. There are so many ways to tell a story and I love challenging myself to tell stories in different ways not only with my clients, but with my personal work as well. My favorite thing about this image is the eye contact of this beautiful human! It's like she's just looking right into my soul haha!" — Lora Grady⠀

I often get questions about handling the weight of my Mamiya RZ67 Pro II. It’s almost a running joke and sometimes one of the only specs folks know about the camera. Of course, compared to nearly any body, it’s weighty. I understood before buying my own that this would be the case. Every review I read seemed to emphasize never shooting it without a tripod. I can certainly see the benefit of using a tripod, but realistically I’m either shooting my boys who never stop moving or I’m out on location moving quickly from one setup to another. Even when I shot solely digital, I never used a tripod for portrait work. I figured I could go without in my use of the RZ. Fortunately, thanks to years of playing guitar during the developmental years of my life, my hands are large enough that the RZ body is comfortable to hand hold. I’ve yet to use a tripod. In this image, I’m actually hovering above my son who was playing on the bed. Hovering with the RZ firmly in hand. It works for me, and if anything the weight helps steady my hand and prevent camera shake. Do you shoot a weighty camera? What has been your experience?
