History Repeats Itself!

It’s funny how history repeats itself.

A couple days ago, I got an email from Express with an image on it like what you see here. What I found the most interesting part of all this was, I was doing senior portraits using this kind of lighting way back in the 90’s.

Back then I was really into shooting high school senior portraits (500 to 600 a year to be exact and on film no less). Somewhere during that time, I met a really good friend and mentor, Larry Peters. Now I’m not sure if Larry actually came up with the idea or not, but he did teach me how to do it. I think even sold me the materials needed to do it. BTW - did I mention we did this on film? No option of looking on the camera back to see if we got it right!!

Now I am sure, that there are those of you out there saying, oh I can probably do that with a filter in Instagram or Snapchat or even come close PhotoShop. Maybe, but I haven’t seen it. Personally I’m not going to waste time looking for that filter since if I want to do it I’ll simply just do it like I did back then.

BTW - if you want to learn, for a nominal fee I’ll teach you!! Which I would imagine for a nominal fee Larry would too!
