Richard Renaldi Workshop

I was lucky enough to take a two-day workshop on photographing strangers with a favorite photographer of mine over the weekend. Richard Renaldi makes luscious large format portraits of strangers whom he encounters at parks, highway rest stops, and bus stations throughout the country. His work has been a longtime inspiration of mine, and I am thrilled to have gained knowledge of his shooting style. These are the images I made during our workshop in Cal Anderson Park. Three of these were made with my Wista 4x5 view camera, and the last image was made on Richard's beautiful 8x10 camera.
