67 Portraits covid-19: day 402 | US: GA | info | act

I bought the Pentax 67 📷 and the Takumar 2.4/105 for portraits. Maybe that’s what I should shoot exclusively? Here are a couple taken on Kodak Portra 400 🎞 that I got on my last scan day. They aren’t perfect, but each has great qualities. Autumn says Henry is wearing his “square smile”, and I don’t like the distracting wooden beam at the top of A’s portrait. Still, the color of everything in Henry’s photo and Autumn’s eyes are magical. Both seem unmistakably medium-format, too.

My only regret is not having a Pentax 67 twenty years ago.
