Happy birthday, Chloe Antulov! LOVE this delightful young lady as both a person & singer/songwriter. I met her @JamminJava where she was to perform & accept one of the top prizes at the #SAWMASC songwriting contest. She was with Sir Fred Cannon; so, from across the venue I assumed she was @MargotMacDonald & approached to check in with her. By the time I got close enough to realize she wasn’t Margot, I had already made eye contact; so, I couldn’t avoid saying hello–lucky me! ; ] If you haven’t heard her yet, you need to catch a show or grab her CD. Her music expresses a maturity that might not be obvious from her even-birthday-elevated years.

I’ve also had the great honor of a formal shoot with Chloe in the form of a #ThreeThreeand3 session. This photo was taken at that shoot but wasn’t part of the formal digital event output. It’s actually an #analogue capture using my #vintage #NikonF3 #film camera & #KodakPortra400 professional color negative #film. The lens was an even older #Nikkor #Kogaku #preAI #135mm f/2.8 model that’s become my go-to lens for #film #portraiture.
