Vintage Ford Truck

I wanted to start posting about the film photographs I’ve been making and give more of a story behind them.

I have an attraction to photographing vintage automobiles. There’s something about the patina found on them, and they have so much more character than the automobiles that are made today.

This vintage Ford F-100 (1967-1972) is located in the neighborhood that I live in. I’ve made a few photos of this same truck, but felt that this one turned out the best due to the time of day it was taken.

I always attempt to make the photos appear to be taken during the time period that they were in their prime even though the cars themselves don’t always look it. I make sure there’s no modern cars in the background, or anything to indicate that this was taken in the present.

I made this photo with a medium format Mamiya C220 Twin Lens Reflex camera on Kodak Portra 400 film. I use the Mamiya C220 for a lot of my film work because the end result from this camera is beautiful.
