Barbershop Glow

Hasselblad and Polaroid weren't the only things I was shooting during Analog's Pulse! Though it was a fast-paced, film-packed Saturday shoot, I managed to squeeze some time in during the lunch break to make not one, but TWO 8x10's, of Barbershops no less!


This image is the start of something you'll be seeing more and more of as I go deeper into the Barbershops project, getting closer. Partially thanks to Photostock 2012, and the other half just because I long to shoot with my longer lenses, there will be much closer "studies" of these barbershops making their way onto the photostream.


I love the inviting tungsten glow of a barbershop pole, coupled with the smooth, flowing lines of color that just beg for a closer look. In a very dimly lit room, these near-antiques have an even stronger presence, but are that much more of a challenge to capture while working.
