-25 to 35 mph winds and 6 sand bags later, I photographed a group of 9 executives for a 2-page spread and possible cover in Colorado Meetings + Events Magazine. Location: Denver Art Museum. Not happy with how these folks were posed, the wind was raging and no one wanted to be there, but that is no excuse. I wish I had posed them in a more interesting manner, perhaps one or two people very close to the camera. Rachel Anderson, Art Director.

-Josh Ramos. Personal work.
One of the many things I love about shooting film and using a medium format or a large format film camera is the lack of depth of field when the lens is wide-open. In my opinion, (digital) pixels out of focus do not “look” the same as (film) grain out of focus! I’m not sure if that makes any sense, but I really think there is a difference in appearance. Josh was photographed with a 16 MP DSLR, with a 100mm lens at f2.8. Eyes are in focus, but ears and nose fall out of focus quickly. The effect I was wanting, but just not the same “feel” as shooting with my Mamiya RZ or Sinar 4×5.

-Photo shoot for the Colorado State University Pi Kappa Alpha 2008 – 2009 Pike DreamGirls calendar. My assistant/intern, the boyz from Pi Kappa Alpha and I spent a wonderfully, hot Sunday afternoon at Broadway Studios East photographing 12 beautiful young ladies for the 2008 – 2009 Pike Dream Girls calendar.
*Calendar and behind the scenes video will be posted once printed.

-Flew to Salt Lake City to photograph Steve Burgess, Liz Burgess and Addie King of The Burgess Group/SLC for APS Best Practices Magazine, Summer 08. Sometimes I wonder why I accept these “fly-in, fly-out” jobs, but I love my work and I’ll suffer for my art. My assistant and I arrived at DIA at 6am flew to SLC, rented a car, drove to our location, set-up, photographed our subjects, broke down and then drove up to Park City, Utah just for a late lunch and to say, “I’ve been there.” When I visit a new area, I like to stop a local on the street, I prefer firemen or police officers, and ask them “where’s the best _ restaurant in town?” After talking with some local paramedics, we drove off to find “the best mexican restaurant” in town. After a wonderful lunch, we then jumped into the rental car, returned to SLC and flew back to Denver just in time for Jay Leno. Thank you to Steve, Liz and Addie for their time and patience.
