Jacqueline Nassar performing at Levon's in Clarksdale Mississippi. If there is one thing that is for certain it is that Clarksdale is a hot bed of musical talent. Whether it is traditional Blues or music of another genre there is someone who can play it and play it well. Jacqueline is an amazing Blues & Contemporary guitarist, Drummer and is also a great vocalist.

There is something simple yet beautiful about a basic Black & White film image. Your focus is less about obvious color and more on the photographs context, contrast and tonal qualities. This image was created on Ilford HP5 film processed and scanned by North Coast Photographic Services based in Carlsbad California www.northcoastphoto.com and shot using a Bronica SQ-Ai medium format camera with 80mm f2.8 lens.

I am really pleased with the look & feel of the new Website, the Blog and how the interface that makes it all function actually works. My photography is presented in a professional manner and I can now focus on things I enjoy rather than trying to be a website developer which I am not and never want to be. Go out and do something you enjoy and help someone along the way, take care.
