Shot on Film: Random....

Many photographers have a section in their blog where they will pull a random picture and post it.  I think that is a great idea.  Since we have a catalog of well over 100,000 images this might be fun.

Today I pulled a random (not really… I actually looked for it) photo of a young boy that I have always liked.  The little guy was part of a wedding that we were photographing and he kept following me around as I was photographing the groomsmen. 

I turned around and he was sitting on my camera flight case.  I just kneeled down to take his photo.  Makes me wonder if he ever became a photographer?

For those who are curious, this was shot with a minolta XE-7 (little ‘m’), using a Rokkor 50mm 1.4 lens on Fuji G-100 film.  Full scan with no retouch or adjustments needed.

I also used a Vivitar 285 on a Vivitar flash bracket, which added just the needed ‘pop’ for the image.

This was kind of fun; might do more than one a week, if time allows.  

Creative Spotlight: KEY INTERIORS, INC - Dana Tatge - Senior Designer

Back in June, we got a look of some of the awesome projects headed up by Key Interiors’ Director of Design, Debby Hill.  Key Interiors has managed to assemble a very talented team and today we are going to highlight Dana Tatge, Senior Designer.

I have had the opportunity to work with Dana on a few projects and, as you will see from the images below, her work is stellar! 

In commercial settings, specifically involving healthcare, one can quickly understand how a warm, soothing environment would be practical and comforting to those receiving treatment.  Here is where Dana’s talents really stand out.  Her designs offer relaxing, calming spaces that make a trip to the healthcare office a little less stressful and a lot more inviting. 

Dana of course works closely with the entire Key Interiors design team, and the results - like all of their projects - demonstrate why they are among the top commercial interior design firms here in the Chicago area.

Here a some of my favorite photographs that highlight Dana’s amazing work.
