Congratulations to our Top Pic of the Week, Glenn Haggis. He captured these amazing photos. Read below for more on his photographic process.
Using a Nikon F100 with a 50mm 1.8 lens loaded with Porta 160,Glen shot this beautiful portrait of his wife, Gill, in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I live in Johannesburg , South Africa and like many photographers I started by just documenting my family (in other words in my own backyard). I mainly shoot candid head and shoulders portraits, but over the years I’ve come to photograph just about anything I find interesting. I just recently started shooting analog film and I am head over heels in love it. It’s partly the process and the unique look of film I love.
We were at small cafe, made our order and then Peter Magubane the award-winning press photographer serendiptiously joined and chatted about projects he is currently busy with. Two of us had the opportunity to take has portrait. Nikon D600 50mm f1.8 at 1/160 sec. The raw file was edited in Lightroom with slight adjustments to the highlights and shadows. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Magubane
