Kiev 4A – A Contax Clone

The Kiev 4A is the third Soviet camera that I have gotten to try. It is another camera from the extensive collection of Mike Eckman, who was nice enough to lend me this one along with the FED-2 that I previously reviewed. I don't call this camera the Contax copy. I like to call it… Continue reading Kiev 4A – A Contax Clone

My First Zines – Riding In Cars With Film

When I started shooting film again a little over a year ago now, I never thought I would have a website, a YouTube channel and now two zines to share my work with the community. I have always loved photography and cameras. I wanted to become a photo journalist when I was a kid, but… Continue reading My First Zines – Riding In Cars With Film

Polaroid Week – Spring 2021

In 2019, Polaroid Week was one of the first things that initiated me into the film community. It's when I made one of my first YouTube videos and wrote one of my first blog posts. I can still remember the fun I had, and the feeling of purpose after being really sick and isolated for… Continue reading Polaroid Week – Spring 2021

Developing Adventures – Lomography Berlin Kino 400

When I first started shooting film again, a nice guy that works for Lomography sent me a box of Lomography films and cameras he wasn't planning on using. One of which was Lomography Berlin Kino 400. I put the films in the fridge, because he said they may be expired, and I forgot about a… Continue reading Developing Adventures – Lomography Berlin Kino 400

The Fed-2 – A Soviet Leica

The FED factory, located in the Soviet Ukraine, started creating Leica copies in the 1930's. This was after the Soviet Union stopped importation of photographic equipment. The history of the factory leaves you with a bit of goose bumps, and not just for the poor orphans that worked there. FED was named for the initials… Continue reading The Fed-2 – A Soviet Leica

Alstroemeria’s on Portra – A Still Life

As mentioned in previous articles, Kelsey often buys me a bouquet of flowers with our groceries that I use in still life shoots. In particular, she likes to buy Alstroemerias because they last a really long time and come in different colors. This particular bouquet was red and white, so I thought Alstroemeria's on Portra… Continue reading Alstroemeria’s on Portra – A Still Life

Creativity and Managing Mental Health

Lately I have been fighting a bout of depression, self doubt, and just an all around lack of motivation to create. The other day Kelsey pushed me to go out and take pictures because she knew it was what I really needed to do. I took my Hasselblad to Tradition, FL and it really did… Continue reading Creativity and Managing Mental Health

Lomography Color Negative 400 – the Saturated Sister of Portra?

Lately I have found myself increasingly reaching for color film rather than black and white. I think probably because of all the Developing Adventures articles, I am a little tired of looking at monochrome film. Plus it's spring and there are so many colors popping around me, so in this article I am going to… Continue reading Lomography Color Negative 400 – the Saturated Sister of Portra?
