Well, it’s about time, eh?

Whoo! New logo: Check. New site launched: Check. Facebook Fan page: Check. Can I breathe yet?

I have been talking about revamping Sarit Photography for, oh, I don’t know, 3 years. I put it on the back-burner for at least 2 of those years, and then dilly-dallied for the last one. Through the encouragement of some pretty darn amazing people (you know who you are), I got finally got my bum in gear and got to shooting and redoing. Voila, here we are. I’m pretty proud, if I don’t say so myself.

So, here’s the update on Sarit Photography:

  • I am sharing a space downtown with Michelle at Lucy B Lingerie. We’re offering Pinup Packages in that fun, 40s-50s style I love so much. I’m hoping to get some more props to funk things up a bit, and maybe even arrange some outdoor shoots with hotrods and the like. Interested in being a pinup? Email me! Have a hotrod you want to lend to my cause? Email me!
  • I am still working on my body-image project and will be building the “wall of images” soon. I finally have my concept in line, so it’s just a matter of putting it together. I can’t wait for that to get off the ground. Time to stop stalling! If you are interested in being a part of that, please email me for info. I’d like to start shooting in April if possible so I can start showing the work by the end of Summer. The intention behind this is go into book form, the proceeds of which will benefit RAINN and V-Day.
  • One of my favorite and most recent shoots was of Maria Luisa in her 7th month of pregnancy. What an amazing experience THAT was.

In the meantime, please check out the site, “like” the page on Facebook, and even follow me on Twitter. I’m taking over the world, one click at at time!

Love and shutter clicks,
Sarit

About me

My goal as a photographer is to capture the essence of my subjects and to go beyond the pose and the subterfuge of “perfection.” When I photograph people, I find it’s the relationship between photographer and subject that ultimately makes the image. Without a connection, I feel the image becomes flat. When I bring  a concept into reality, it is about making the components congeal so they become a form of communication.

I still shoot film (though I do use a digital when the occasion calls for it); I prefer the heavy shutter of my Hasselblad or the romanticism of the 4×5 (when I can get my hands on one!). I like my colors saturated and my blacks dark; I use films that will take me there without the use of digital alteration. bottom line: I’ll take the scent of freshly developed film over the silent hum of the computer any day.
