Black and White Challenge – Day 5 of 5


I was nominated for the black and white challenge by Scott Wyden Kivowitz. The deal is that for 5 days you must post a black and white image and each day nominate another photographer to do the same.
Today is day 5 of 5 for me. Today I will nominate Marc Sadowski for the challenge.

This is a photo of my dad.  Since many post photos of their loved ones when they die, let me start by saying dad is alive!

This guy, my dad, has taught me so much in life, and especially in photography.  From watching him shoot in his garage/basement studio, to explaining lighting back when I was playing with Pixar Typestry (on a woefully underpowered PC with probably a 486 DX2 and not enough RAM), he has always been the best photography instructor I could ask for.  So I only found it fitting, to complete this challenge with a portrait of him. I took this in 2012, when he was explaining something about lighting in my basement studio.  He is a massive fan of black and white photography, especially film, which he still shoots today.

Thank You Dad!
