Beekeeping with my father
Crunch-time is hitting the studio, and in order to clear my head a bit before diving in to a challenging and rewarding day of production I thought I'd spend a minute with a few favorite Polaroid images from this Summer. I came across these portraits of my father tending to his bees while putting together a guest post for one of my favorite blogs-Dog Art Today. This guest blog post is all about my secret affair with my iPhone's "poladroid" app. I love it, I hate it, I feel conflicted about it. But then I stumble across my one true love- a dusty Polaroid Land Camera- and all is right again. Nothing comes close to the magic, the depth, and wordless honesty that the analog instant system can create.
When you photograph the things you love, with the tools you love, the only outcome will be something beautiful. So, here are a few portraits of my father, proudly tending to his bees. I was supposed to be helping, but instead I just tucked my pants into my socks, put my hood over my head, and tried to focus the darn camera through a huge mesh cape/hat thing. It was perfect.
