Washington DC Photographer
Here are some photos I shot while second shooting for Akins Lawal Photography earlier this summer. You can check out his awesome post of this wedding here. Akins shoots film with a variety of formats and I had the chance to shoot my Nikon F100 film camera. The photos below were shot on Kodak Portra 160 and developed by Richard Photo Lab. I had a great time shooting Erika and Dwight's wedding with Akins - nothing beats being around a positive and dope couple. Check them out below.
Personal work. Man, I've stayed away from this for a while. After a series of weddings and engagement shoots, I felt the need to bring it back to another thing I enjoy - street photography. In a sense street photography is like shooting a wedding - lighting scenarios change and anticipating moments. Street photography gives me a chance to interact with strangers too, some folks shy away from the camera and others jump right in wanting their photo to be taken. For me, I always ask permission to take someones photo. I know others who don't and thats fine too.
Here are some photos made with my Nikon D700 using a 50mm 1.4. I shot these photos on U Street along with Akins Lawal who was shooting film with his Contax 645 Medium Format camera. Let me know if you figure out the story I tried to tell here. Enjoy!
