Hi, my long name is
Brian Barnabas Bednarek...the short version is "brine".
I was born in Bayonne, NJ...lived
all over the place and currently am in Woodbridge, NJ.
I have been a painter and photographer for as long as I can remember...
here's a few of my photos.
I Hope You Like Them...
I use a lot of Russian equipment. I love my Zenith 80 (a Hasselblad copy) as well as my Kiev 60. I also use a Kiev 88, Nikon
CoolPix 885, various Polaroids and a Crown Graphic. I have also been doing pinhole photos with cameras I have built. I enjoy
the larger negative that a 4x5 or 8x10 camera can give. I also enjoy alternative process photography, such as Hand Coloring,
Van Dyke prints and Polaroid manipulations.
You may enjoy my figure drawings... everything there was done in 20 minutes
or less... I feel that if you can't capture the pose right away, you ain't ever gonna get it!!! The link for it is below.
