I’ve wanted to post about this forever!
Many moons ago I worked with in Brooks Ayola in LA. He works commercially but also shoots beautiful portraits. We made a few, had a wonderful time shooting and all that jazz.
Brooks shoots some of his portraits using a view camera. He asked me a few months ago for a sentence or two on what it was like posing for a photographer using a view camera and, never one for brevity (except on Twitter!), I sent back an essay on the topic. It ran in View Camera Magazine a few months ago as part of an article featuring Brooks’ portraits.
