"Autumn in Paris"

"When making my yearly pilgrimage to Paris Photo, I tend to spend a couple of days at the exposition, getting inspired, then head into my favorite city to shoot, hoping that the inspiration finds its way into my photos. This year, I embarked on my journey with inspiration in hand, thanks to Mike Ryan, who introduced me to the Bream bug. While in Paris I hoped I would be able to reproduce the glitch that turns Bream’s frame from white to black (see Hipstography’s article for details on how to reproduce the effect.) It took several concentrated editing sessions (and a few glasses of local wine) to apply the effects to the shots I had taken during each day.
The heavy black border is elegant, chic and sexy. The Lincoln lens and Juicy Orange Gel flash add a gritty warmth to the Bream film. The resulting portfolio feels to me like an autumn day in Paris, where the leaves glow warm against the cold gray clouds, the air heady with the smell of roasting chestnuts. For me, it is the epitome of Paris.
