Rolleicord Portraits

After months of architectural city shots, I grew slightly bored of photographing buildings. Posed and candid portraits became my new obsession. I abandoned my digital SLR and picked up a Rolleicord III, HP5 film, and some development chemicals. The odd looking, medium format camera makes it easy to approach a situation. My goal is to epitomize the moment by capturing how the subject interacts with their current environment.
