The Auction - Todd White Photography and Videography

A special project shooting a cattle auction on film using a Nikon F4 and Kodak Portra 800.

"The Auction"

A few years ago I had the opportunity to shoot a cattle auction but this was not just any cattle auction. Earlier in the year, I was given a set of film cameras by a very dear friend. His mother had passed away and she was a photographer back in the film days. Her husband was ready to part with the cameras but wanted them to go to someone who would put them to use...to tell stories with them. It was an amazing gift!

A few months later, I was invited out to a cattle auction by my friend. His father is looking at retiring from the cattle business soon and the family wanted to capture his last few auctions. I jumped at the opportunity and what better way to capture these auctions than on one of his wife's cameras. These images were shot on a Nikon F4 35mm camera using Kodak Portra 800 film.
