Mission South: Film Edition

Gina Todorovich

   

In addition to breaking in my new lens at the Black Cat DC, I also took some shots of Mission South with my Pentax K1000 film camera. You can probably see that these shots here have a slightly different feel to them. I used Forma Holga 135-24 Black & White film (a roll I ordered last summer when I eagerly loaded my Pentax Super ME...to discover the shutter wasn't working).

I found out after the fact that the film is designed for shooting in unfavorable lighting conditions and can give different effects if you over or under expose it. I happened upon some of that unintentionally with this roll. When I used the meter to determine the proper exposure, I think I may have actually ended up over exposing the shots of Mission South, and this resulted in a bit of a foggy feel to the shots (which I am kinda digging). Then later, I thought I was under exposing the ones of Olivia and the Mates, which turned out to actually be about spot on and much more contrasty. You can see those at the end of this post.

I've said it before...I'll say it again... I am simply thrilled to be shooting with film once again. I think differently about how I photograph when shooting with film. I think more. This was my first roll of black and white that I've shot in years, and I refrained from taking a lot of shots that I realized wouldn't be optimal for black and white since what drew my eye to them in the first place was subtle differences in colors that wouldn't translate well to black and white. I found myself thinking in black and white. And, well, a concert sure did lend itself nicely to that!

Here are the rest of my shots from the show. Enjoy!

(And remember, you can catch Mission South live tonight at DC9!)

Mission South | Photo Shoot

Gina Todorovich

I’d like to introduce you to Max, Dan and John—the men of Mission South.

Mission South is a DC-based alternative blues trio, and I had the pleasure of photographing them this past weekend. (Special thanks again to Cara for linking us up on Twitter. And to Twitter, for being awesome.)

I love the story of Mission South—three guys who have been friends since the fourth grade and formed a band. After high school, they each attended different colleges (in New Orleans, Virginia and Vermont at that!), but kept the band alive and never lost sight of their dream and determination. Now that they’ve all graduated and are back in the area, I think we’ll be seeing and hearing a lot more from them—and that’s a good thing.

You can find out more about the band (in their own words) and check out their music on their website. Be sure to follow them on Twitter, like them on Facebook, and see them in concert later this month, too!

And last, but not least, here are some of the pictures from the photo shoot...

Thanks to Mission South for such a great, fun shoot! And thanks to my photographer friend, Jonathan Adjahoe, for finding this great airport location!
