journal

A simple journal of my thoughts on photography and the process of making work.

I want to take a moment to introduce you to James Ward Byrkit. He is a very good friend. A buddy. A regular Joe (Jim)…We took this portrait in January as he prepped for the Premiere of his feature animated film, RANGO, starring Johnny Depp. The film officially opens March 4 -  EVERYWHERE. I’m sure you have seen the billboards all over LA. GO SEE IT! It is for us - THE ADULTS…

I shot this using a Mamiya 67, 140 Macro Lens, and Pan F Black and White film. It was processed in Rodinal 1:50 for 11 minutes. Scanned and cleaned up in Photoshop.

To me the shot is honest, a tad concerned, and forward. I love it. I keep it by my desk and I keep looking at it out of the corner of my eye…trying to find something to bitch about. I can’t. He just looks back at me with honesty. Waiting for me to answer him. I’m trying to think of what I asked him…

Good luck with the film my friend. There will be many more…
