For nearly four weeks in June and July, I drove around … shooting portraits of athletes who would be competing in the 2012 London Olympics. I photographed them not only in color with my digital SLR cameras, but also in black and white, using a 4-by-5-inch field camera and a 100-plus-year-old Petzval lens. Each black-and-white portrait was exposed onto black-and-white photographic paper, processed in a darkroom and scanned into a computer.
So glad someone did this! Wish he’d only shot paper negs though…who needs digital anyhow.
Check out more images here and here.
