    Hey, John-

    I remember talking about this idea with you at your Greenbank Farm gallery opening a few months before executing it for the first time. The negative I made that day didn't work out, by the way. I think it was my first time using that studio shutter and I fouled it up, totally overexposing the negative. Come to the Jamboree and I'll get it right this time!

    Cheers,

    Here are a few more prints from the Jamboree that I've made in the past few weeks.

    This is the woman in the last portrait performing one of her songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8c6BTVMP64

    I took the group portrait with an 1899 5x7 ROC Pony Premo No. 6 and the others with a 1907 14" Voigtlander Heliar on a 1944 8x10 Ansco Studio No. 5. I was able to shoot portraits outside during the day on the final day of the festival because it was cloudy bright. The group portrait has the back of my portrait tent as its backdrop.

    Thanks for the song link.

    Nashville music comes to my new town often.

    I like the group shot best.

    Thanks, Randy.

    Here are a few of the other musicians who played there last summer:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lWXpKCQ6XGI

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvQfKHBuVbo

    It's mostly local or regional musicians, lots of youngish people, but truckloads of talent.

    Great work Cameron! This is wonderfully done - very impressive. Getting a classic soft overhead light through diffusion like that is exactly how all the old photography studios did it!

    In a related note... I recently visited Seoul, South Korea and was most spectacularly impressed by the work of a local photographic artist there who set made near-life-size prints in black and white of nearly all the shop owners on a pedestrian street in the historic (and very touristic) Bukchon Hanok Village.

    The artist or shop is called Mulnamoo (mulnamoo.com) - and they used the same technique of a large tent (at a larger scale) with diffusion cloth as the studio. I have only found the photos easily referenced via instagram (@mulnamoo):

    https://www.instagram.com/p/Bo5x7W8B5sN/ - triptych of prints, example results
    https://www.instagram.com/p/BpXDeAPBbgd/ - print example next to the shop owner subject

    The work was also compiled into a beautifully printed book, from the letterpress shop across the street.

    I love this! Thank you so much for passing this along.

    It made me think of a project that Neil Selkirk did in Times Square back in 98 (although I much prefer the project that you shared): https://www.neilselkirk.com/1000-on-...ykhw13heqtrasv

    I was living in NY at the time and I remember how captivating it was to walk down that street and confront these 1000 faces printed several feet tall right at street level.

    Re: Portable Studio Portraits

    Greetings! One week from tomorrow, I’ll once again have the north-light, portable portrait studio up and running at the Subdued Stringband Jamboree. If any of you on this forum by some coincidence are in the region around Mount Baker in Washington State and you happen to enjoy bluegrass & folk music, you ought to come to the festival and visit my tent. I’ll make your portrait and mail you a print. I’m not even charging for the prints anymore, with the caveats that I retain all of the rights to use the images and that I only print images that I choose (not every session will yield a print, but just mention this post and I’ll make sure we get a keeper).

    It’s going to be fun. I’ll post images here through the Winter as I print.

    Cheers,

    Maybe. If you see a guy with a folded Crown Graphic at his side on a shoulder strap plus a waist pouch stuffed with some sheet film, you'll know it's me.

    Re: Portable Studio Portraits

    It was the fourth year I’ve made portraits at this festival. It was three days of shooting and just under 150 sheets of 8 x 10 film. I’ll post some of the results this fall and winter. Now to organize and store the massive mess of tarps, furniture, fabric, and equipment littering my garage!
